Meet Mosaic: Our Nutrition Team

Mar 8, 2023

The Meet Mosaic series introduces members of our team to the community. In honor of National Registered Dietitian Day and National Nutrition Month, please meet our wonderful Nutrition Team Members: Megann Dastrup, MDA, RDN, LD,CDCES, Hannah Brzozowski, RND and Marcella Canelo, RDN.

Megann: I’ve worked at Mosaic for close to eight years. Currently I am the Nutrition Services Manager. I work out of the Redmond, Madras and Prineville clinics.

Hannah: I am one of our registered dietitians. I’ve been with Mosaic since January 2021. I offer telehealth with patients from all Mosaic sites and just started assisting with our eating disorder clinic.

Marcella: As a nutritionist, I see patients for one-on-one visits to discuss nutrition, health and relationship with food. I serve the Bend clinics and see patients two days per week from Connors. The other two days are phone visits. I’ve been with Mosaic for two-and-a-half years.

Q: What do you like most about working at Mosaic?

Megann: The people: I enjoy working with our patients in a way that is meaningful for them and their health journey. I love my colleagues and am humbled to work with so many amazing people that are committed to Mosaic’s mission and vision.

Hannah: People are so accommodating and really go the extra mile to care for our patients.

Marcella: I love my coworkers! Everyone I work with cares a lot for their patients and the work environment is really positive. I love being part of a team.

Q: What does an average day at work look like for you?

Megann: Most of my day is spent providing patient care, either in person or through phone visits or group classes. In between patient care I work on promoting and enhancing nutrition services within Mosaic, collaborating with various Mosaic roles (population health, marketing, CHW team, RNCC’s) as well as various community organizations. I appreciate the variety I get working in three distinct communities.

Hannah: I tend to see 6-8 patients per day remotely and spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour with each patient.

Marcella: I spend most of the day doing patient care and see nine people per day if I have a full schedule. During my down time, I’m usually discussing cases with other providers, catching up on emails and keeping myself up-to-date on new nutrition info.

Q: Where did you grow up? How long have you been in Central Oregon?

Megann: I grew up in Lehi, Utah. At the time it was a small farming town without stoplights, now it is a metropolis and I have to use google maps to find my parents house. I have been in Central Oregon for almost eight years and love it.

Hannah: I grew up in Maine. I’ve been in Oregon since 2016.

Marcella: I grew up in Santa Rosa, CA but have lived in Nebraska, Guyana, Rwanda and most recently, Newport, OR, before moving to Bend. I’ve been here two-and-a-half years.

Q: Can you tell us about your family life?

Megann: My husband, Taylor and I have a rambunctious five-year-old pup named Miles.

Hannah: I just got married in September 2022. We have a dog named Ruth and spend most of our time mountain biking and growing flowers.

Marcella: I live with my partner, Colton, and we have a cat from Rwanda named Damon.

Q: What is your favorite saying or quote?

Megann: Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today. ~ James Dean

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. ~ Edward Abbey

Hannah: The goal isn’t to eat perfectly, the goal is to eat pretty good, most of the time.

Marcella: Not all those who wander are lost. ~ J.R.R. Tokien

It’s a bit cliché but I feel it resonates with my life!

Q: What are some things that most people don’t know about you?

Megann: My favorite season is winter and I am sad if I don’t get to shovel snow at least once. I’ve spent a lot of time at the Grand Canyon, hiking all but one small remote section of trail. I roast my own coffee and am a successful backyard gardener by Central Oregon standards.

Hannah: I was a competitive ice dancer!

Marcella: When I was a kid, I used to compete in Irish Dancing.
