In Loving Memory

Jane Nuckolls

Jane was a member of the Academy and the Tennessee Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for approximately 40 years. She was actively involved with advocacy, reimbursement and clinical issues at both the state and district level. Earlier in her career Jane worked for the Child Development Center through the University of Memphis and later for Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, Tennessee.  She moved to Memphis and began a successful career working for the Methodist Healthcare System. During her time at Methodist she assisted the hospital in getting insurance coverage added to their benefits package to provide coverage for dietitian services. 

Jane was an active member of Christ United Methodist Church in Memphis and served on the Board of the Mid-South Food Bank. Jane was a dear friend and mentor to many. She will be greatly missed.
