Professor Frost began her career as a registered dietitian in 2004. While employed as a dietitian, she obtained foundation funding to employ a clinical dietitian in the Oakwood Hospital Center for Cancer Care, providing nutrition education and resources to patients undergoing active cancer treatments. She was a strong supporter for clinical dietitians in the oncology setting, and did research and educational courses to support her stance.

She earned her Physician Assistant degree in 2009 through University of Detroit Mercy. After graduation, Frost worked in Hematology and Oncology in the inpatient setting. During that time, she also provided nutrition lectures and supervised clinical site visits for Detroit Mercy PA Program students. In the spring of 2018, she returned to Detroit Mercy as an assistant professor. She currently teaches the Physical Exam Practicum course and provides support for other courses in her area of expertise. Her professional interests include oncology, benign hematology and interprofessional education.
