Melissa Kern Bio:
"I have just moved to Wisconsin from Kansas in April. I am working at Heritage Manor. I have been a CDM for 3 years now and have worked as dietary manager for 10. I have been working in nursing homes for 20 years. In Kansas I was very involved in culture change and this is an area I am very passionate about - person centered care. I have been married for 19 years and have three daughters and one son. Two of my oldest kids have begun working for me as dietary aides when they turned 16. I am excited to be in Wisconsin which is where my husband is from and look forward to meeting everyone who I have not got chance to meet yet".
Judy Hazlett Bio:
"DMA/ANFP Member since 1981
Culinary Arts trained with over 30 years’ experience in acute healthcare. Held a food and nutrition service manager/director position for the past 20 years. In the 1990’s and early 2000 was very active at the state level; held district office for over 6 hears and held state secretary position for 6 years.
I thoroughly enjoy the food service industry. The food service industry is in constant change whether regulatory, technology, farm/crop, etc. or just dealing with finding and retaining good people. This constant change is what keeps me coming in to work every day and making a difference in the lives of the people I serve.
I would be privileged to serve the members of Wisconsin ANFP as the state secretary.
