Welcome to Culinary!
My name is Cristen Clark and I teach Culinary Arts. My background is that I am from Illinois, where I did my undergraduate work at Southern Illinois University and earned a degree in Food and Nutrition. I then moved to Boone, where I did my graduate work at Appalachian State University and got my Master's Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. I was a practicing Registered Dietitian for 7 years before I had the amazing opportunity to work at McDowell High School.
I currently reside in McDowell County with my husband and two young children. I honestly cannot think of a better place to live and raise a family!
