Meet Cyndi Ellis


Cyndi is a full time Nutrition Educator and has been with Food $ense since 1996, when she joined the WSU Extension team to develop a nutrition education program in elementary schools with limited-resource families and children. She works with students in elementary schools, particularly second and fourth graders.

When school is out for the summer, she takes the program to where the kids are; summer cooking camps, parks, and schools. She also assists in the coordination of the Food $ense program. She is an active participant of Fort Vancouver CrossFit. But at heart she is a weekend warrior; she kayaks, hikes in the Columbia River Gorge, backpacks into the wilderness, downhill skis, and snow shoes. When the weather keeps her indoors, she loves to lose herself in the kitchen or create photo albums to share with family and friends.

Cyndi earned her DTR credentials in 1992 with The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as a registered Dietetic Technician (DTR).
