She has also taught nutrition and cooking classes in local grocery stores, for senior centers and for corporations and individuals of all ages. Currently, her private nutrition practice, Hoehner Health and Wellness, provides a variety of nutrition services including consultations for assisted living facilities for senior care.

Rose Clifford is the Senior Nutrition Advisor for Iona Senior Services in Tenleytown, DC.  Her work focuses on food access, advocacy, and education to help older adults live their best lives in their own homes and communities.  She is a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and community healthcare professional.
