Meet the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Amanda has studied nutrition since the turn of the century and opened her private practice in 2011 in "the oldest city" - St. Augustine, Florida. Trained in both Allopathic (Conventional) and Naturopathic (Holistic) nutrition therapy, she addresses whole body wellness with good nutrition as the cornerstone. She graduated from Bastyr University - an internationally renowned School of Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle, WA - with a Bachelor's Degree in Natural Health Sciences and a Major in Nutrition in 2004. She furthered her studies at the University of North Florida with another Bachelor's degree and a Major in Nutrition & Dietetics in 2007, before attending the Florida Department of Health Internship Program and becoming a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist for the State of Florida in 2008.
Active in the public health arena for several years, she focused on maternal and child health. She combined forces with a popular program in the U.K. - Menopause Self Care - that teaches women how to work through 'the change' and make informed choices about their own healthcare. Other involvements include adjunct teaching with Flagler College's Adult Continuing Education Program (ACE), various collaborations with local groups and volunteer work with many local businesses, including a long history and past-presidency with the Rotary Club of St. Augustine Beach.
She relishes in opportunities to help others and to serve her community in the best ways possible.
Amanda fosters a friendly, casual counseling atmosphere with an attentive approach to address the nutrition needs and nutrition-related goals of her patients. She is proud to be trained to navigate through the maze of nutrition and deliver trustworthy, reliable, evidence-based information and dietary advice. With experience teaching nutrition education to individuals of all ages and backgrounds, she has worked on individual and joint projects throughout the United States and abroad. She truly understands the power nature's bounty and good nutrition have on life long health no matter where we live.
