My name is Courtney Melrose. I am a certified diabetes and education specialist at DETS. I grew up on a dairy farm in Buckeye, AZ but have spent the last twenty years in NYC. New York City where I got my Masters in public health and nutrition and became a registered dietitian.
My husband and I decided to leave the city after the arrival of our second son. We both hadn’t spent much time in Utah prior to moving, but with a place as beautiful as this is, we didn’t need long to fall in love.
We are excited about skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking, and all the other adventures Utah has to offer our family.
Prior to having kids, our favorite vacation was Patagonia. We stayed at an eco-camp that was breathtakingly beautiful and met people we are still friends with today! With kids, we love going to my husband’s childhood stomping grounds in Maui, Hawaii.
I may be aging myself a bit, but my favorite actresses are Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore, both of whom I was able to meet in NYC, and I thought they were lovely humans.
Living in NYC, I’ve had some of the most amazing food on the planet but our favorite go-to was our local Chinese restaurant. I haven’t found a favorite here yet, so I’m open to suggestions!
I am very excited to be part of the DETS team. I believe in putting the patient first no matter what, tailoring care plans for each patient's unique needs and doing everything in my power and scope to make your life a little better. I look forward to working with you!
