Stephanie Macon lives in Cashmere, Washington with her husband and three children, and works for Confluence Health at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee as a clinical dietitian. She attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado for her undergrad as well as her Master’s program. Stephanie completed her internship in Colorado at a distance program through the University of Northern Colorado. She started out working for a non-profit organization in community nutrition after her internship in Denver. Stephanie then worked as a clinical dietitian and renal dietitian for a state hospital in Salisbury, Maryland before moving back to Washington State, where she was born.
Stephanie has always been fascinated by eating disorders and has spent years researching the treatment and complications of these disorders. She has visited the Emily Program in Spokane, the Eating Recovery Center in Bellevue and Denver, as well as Remuda Ranch in Arizona. Stephanie has visited the Denver Acute Center for Eating Disorders with patients that have very severe malnutrition and a high risk of refeeding that require careful monitoring. She was fortunate enough to hear Dr. Mehler, PhD speak in Denver, who is the leading medical expert on medical complications of eating disorders. Stephanie has counseled eating disorder patients on an outpatient basis as well, which was a challenging yet rewarding experience.
At Stephanie’s current hospital, she and her coworker have developed an eating disorder protocol that provides guidelines on how to medically treat the specific needs of this population. They facilitated having Dr. Smart from the Eating Recovery Center visit Central Washington Hospital to lecture on the medical complications of eating disorders to the hospital’s medical staff. Education is ongoing in bringing awareness, identification, and understanding of eating disorders to the providers, nurses, and others who provide patient care.
Stephanie’s goal is to not cause further harm to patients with eating disorders, and to stabilize them to a point where they can transfer to a treatment facility &/or home with the appropriate support to help them with recovery.
