Ms. Nauss was the supervisor of nutritional services in Hamilton County Schools from 2011 to 2014.  While with the district she supervised nutritional aspects of food service operations in 72 schools and worked with approximately 500 staff. Ms. Nauss coordinated special dietary requests for over 300 students and planned, implemented and evaluated initiatives to improve food service and nutrition for children.  She also represented the School Nutrition Department and the district in community partnerships and managed website content for school nutrition to improve communication with students, families, staff and the community.
