Ryan T Hartz
MS, RD, CSSD
Ryan is a graduate of Marywood University in Scranton, PA. As of December 3, 2004, Ryan successfully passed the Registration Exam for Dietitians on the first attempt through the Commission on Dietetic Registration. His undergraduate degree in nutrition is from Marywood University, along with a masters degree in Sports Nutrition and Exercise Science. He also holds an Associate of Science degree from Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke, PA.
Ryan’s first position was as a clinical dietitian at the Tioga Nursing Center in New York. His second temporary clinical dietitian position was at Sodexho, the Manor Care Kingston East unit in Kingston, PA. These two positions were coverage for dietitians on maternity leave. The journey for a full-time position as a dietitian came to an end, as Ryan held his first permanent position as a clinical dietitian at Allied Skilled Nursing Facility in Scranton, PA for a year and a half. In December 2006, Ryan accepted a position as a full-time Sports Nutritionist for PowerBar, where he currently practices sports dietetics.
Ryan has shared an interest in computers, and in January 2002, he had been introduced to computer software programming by his brother Charles. During the summer months following his internship, Ryan knew he needed to study for the Registration Exam for Dietitians, thus, he began writing his first program, the RD Practice Exam. After 3 months, the demo for the RD Practice Exam was launched! As friends and family were testing the application, Ryan was busy completing the final product. The full version was completed shortly after in December.
The RD Practice Exam was the first program to be developed and has been followed by the DTR Practice Exam and RD/DTR Hanging with Nutrition. More titles and updates to current titles are expected to come.
