After five years working as a metabolic dietitian at Emory University, where she helped patients with PKU, MSUD and other metabolic disorders, Lesperance Stelton began applying her technical, culinary and nutritional expertise to design and develop new specialty food products for Cambrooke Foods. These protein-modified foods have significantly improved the quality of life of tens of thousands of patients with metabolic disorders. She has also been working side-by-side with a UW-Madison research team to bring to market a groundbreaking new PKU treatment. When she’s not finding ways to make the metabolic diet more manageable and enjoyable, you can find her training for her next marathon or triathlon.
