Stephanie Del Toro
Short Bio: My name is Stephanie Del Toro and I am the nutritionist at the teen center for BGCDT. Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township gave me the opportunity to start my own nutrition and cooking program at the teen center. I have my Bachelors of Science in nutrition from Benedictine University. My goal is to help others lead healthy and fulfilling lifestyles. I want to teach others how food impacts their overall health.

After I received my Bachelors degree of Science in Nutrition, I began looking for a position in nutrition.
