As part of her clinical training in dietetics, Colby worked at the eating disorder unit of the New York State Psychiatric Institute. She was part of a multidisciplinary team that focused on the research and treatment of eating disorders for in-patient care.

Most recently, Colby worked at the prestigious Renfrew Center for eating disorders in New York City.
