Have you ever dreamed of being able to communicate in Spanish with your patients?

Do you have Spanish speaking patients and find it challenging to communicate with them?

Dear fellow RDNs, N-DTRs & Interns,

Do you spend countless hours calling the language line or talking to your patients through translators?

Dear fellow RDNs, N-DTRs & Interns,

Have you felt limited in your ability to get hired by an organization where the ability to speak Spanish was required or preferred?

Dear fellow RDNs, N-DTRs & Interns,

Do you wish you could learn Spanish but think you don’t have time to learn?

Dear fellow RDNs, N-DTRs & Interns,

Would a solution interest you where you CAN learn Spanish and have time to do it?

Dear fellow RDNs, N-DTRs & Interns,

We are nutrition professionals just like you, and we were in your shoes once too.

We know what it is like to not know how to speak a foreign language.


My personal struggle in this area dates back to when I was 3 years old! My father was born and raised in Cuba (with a last name like Cohen, who would think he’d be a Cuban Jew!!) and being that he came to this country to attain freedom in 1961, he wanted to be American. So he married my mom, who was also Jewish but American. We only spoke in English at home. 

I would hear my dad speaking with his brother in Spanish, or his mom (my grandmother) in Spanish on their weekly calls. I would be sitting at a family event where my first cousins (my father’s brother’s children) were laughing as the family joked in Spanish ---- I never understood much and it all sounded like gibberish to me! I would beg my dad “Papi (I did call him daddy the Spanish way) can you teach me Spanish?” No Ilene, your mother does not understand it and that would be impolite. What? 

A lemon became lemonade.

I got to 7th grade and I studied so hard, I was on a mission to learn to speak Spanish. I was not thinking of my career back then, I just wanted to talk with my family. I was at the top of my class. I soured through high school Spanish with straight As, and got an almost perfect score on my AP Spanish NYS Regents exam. In college I continued at the top of my classes and got accepted to a study abroad program in Segovia Spain. I lived with a Spanish family and got even more fluent.

After I returned from Spain, my dad then started talking with me in Spanish. I think it was that he realized how marketable it would make me in my career! Things really came to fruition when I was in my dietetic internship. I realized how easy it was for me to communicate with my patients because I knew Spanish. Every job after that was easy for me to get --- every hiring manager told me that they picked my resume above the rest since I knew Spanish. I have made thousands of dollars given job offers I would have never gotten had I did not know Spanish. I have helped so many Spanish speaking patients to improve their health, lower their A1cs, decrease their potassium levels, be able to set goals for themselves. I have had job security as employers in the healthcare field are always looking for nutrition professionals who speak Spanish. I even started teaching a webinar series in Spanish for RDs and presented on the topic around the country. 

Fast forward over 15 years later and now I am in private practice. While trying to start my business and needing a little extra side money, I applied to be a Spanish tutor and got certified by a national tutoring company. Tutoring high school Spanish made me realize that I had a bigger more important audience to teach - other dietitians!

alenka's story

If we overcame our struggles, and through it we've been successful, we have confidence that SO CAN YOU and we have the solution to help you be successful too! 

I was born and raised in Argentina and, believe it or not, similarly to Ilene, my first challenging experience with a foreign language was with Spanish! My parents were both immigrants from Slovenia (my name Alenka is Slovenian) so we only spoke Slovenian at home. 

I was first exposed to Spanish in kindergarten. As you know,when you learn a language as a kid we are all like sponges, so obviously I am fluent in Spanish. I remember my first day in kindergarten; everyone spoke Spanish and while I understood everything, I was afraid to talk! Since we spoke only Slovenian at home, I was terrified to speak in Spanish. I went to a Catholic school and my mom told the nuns to give me extra attention. Despite that, I would limit myself to “yes” and “no” answers to their questions. 

My second challenge with language was when I met my husband, Tom, who was in Argentina working at the time. We met at a running club. Even though I took classes in English, I had trouble understanding his New York accent, as we studied British English in school.

Then when I came to the US, everything resolved and since I spoke Spanish fluently I got a job right away! Coming from Argentina being a bilingual RD working in the South Bronx, my first patient was from the Dominican Republic. I will never forget when the patient asked me “So you speak Italian?” There is a definite difference between the Argentinean accent and the Latin american accent. I am excited to help you all learn to speak and understand Spanish with a neutral accent! 

What I have learned from living in NY for the past 20 years, is that being able to speak in Spanish with patients, not only helped me get a good job, but also to maintain it (when other colleagues of mine were laid off..). Job security is so important and the skill of speaking Spanish will absolutely help you!
