Laura Morton is a Nutrition Educator for the St. Louis District Dairy Council managing 28 counties throughout southern Missouri and Illinois and working out of the St. Louis office. Laura, a Registered Dietitian, earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences and a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Education both from Eastern Illinois University.

Previously, Laura has worked as a school food service director for Aramark K-12 where she created school menus for the region. Growing up on a farm in Illinois has sparked an interest in helping others, especially children, understand the journey of food from farm to table.

Her favorite part of the job is having the opportunity to work in the school nutrition arena, which she finds very rewarding. Her hobbies include cooking (and eating!), rock climbing, and hanging out with her three rescue dogs.
