Her most recent position, with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. was as a Senior Corporate Benefits Manager, where she led the written nutrition format for the “My Healthy Lifestyle” section on Wal-Mart’s global employee website. Litzinger has managed a corporate nutrition center, and she also has written as the Special Sections Coordinator for the Northwest Arkansas Times. A published author as well, Litzinger’s book — Talking to the Trees: Big Time Epiphanies of a Small Town Girl, is a non-fiction collection of stories from her life that reveal the commonality in all of us — and discloses many of her gastronomic mentors.Bringing her love of food to her married life in the 1970s, Litzinger strove for self-education in nutrition.
Her (now adult) daughters reacted unfavorably and unhealthily to the preservatives and chemical additives in food. So, she started hand-making their baby food from healthy ingredients, got positive results, and chose at that moment to become a mouthpiece for progressive nutrition.Litzinger is an active member of her local food co-op, frequents farmer’s markets, and is a full-time freelance writer. She lives in Fayetteville, AR with her husband, WC.
