Anne-Marie Gloster has always been fascinated by food and kitchen environments. A North Carolina native, she was the first undergraduate at North Carolina State University to combine degrees in Food Science with Human Nutrition. She then obtained a Masters of Public Health degree at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill; ultimately becoming the Chief Clinical Dietitian and Assistant Director of Nutrition and Food Services at the UNC Hospitals. Anne-Marie returned to NC State to obtain a PhD in Educational Leadership. Her doctoral work focused on Wellness Policy in K-12 education.

After fifteen years as a registered dietitian in corporate and medical environments Gloster decided to return to the academic world with a position at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. While there she enthusiastically taught courses in Nutrition, Food Science, and Food Systems Management. She was also the Undergraduate Didactic Program in Dietetics Director while the major experienced explosive growth.

Her passion for cooking, urban farming, sustainable food systems, and community activism culminated in a project with Alice Water’s Edible Schoolyard Project. She assisted in the start-up of the first ESY housed in a children’s museum, instead of a K-12 school. From there she went to teach at Appalachian State University. Gloster has done freelance work in recipe testing, menu development, culinary demonstrations, media communications, and food systems management consulting.

Dr. Gloster moved to Washington state in 2015 to join the Epidemiology faculty and teach in the Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health Program (formerly the Nutritional Sciences Program). She teaches courses in Nutrition and Health, Nutrition Education and Culinary Nutrition Science. She enjoys meeting local food enthusiasts and exploring the rich and diverse culinary cultures of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
