Hey I’m Amanda.
And my fave food is pizza. In fact, I studied nutrition because I knew I would never get tired of talking about food.
As a Registered Dietitian and gut health nutritionist, I’ve been helping people since 2011 address their gut health, irritable bowel syndrome, and food sensitivities/intolerances.
Early in my career I realized that there’s more to developing lifelong habits than counting macros or following a cookie cutter diet.
This is what led me to develop a strong foundation in learing how to listen to your body and intuitive eating.
Gut health came after I had some digestive concerns #poop. From there I saw how working on your gut really benefits the whole body.
My mission is to help people improve their gut health and help them be more flexible, loving and understanding with their ability to do so.
Why work with me?
When you choose to work with me, my first goal is to make you feel comfortable (hello, poop flashcards!).
From there, it’s all about getting you the tools and support you need to make a change.
It’s also important to me that you recognize that “gut health” isn’t just about the gut. We’ll also be working through how gut and digestion problems can affect the mind, body, and heart.
I will serve as a true “coach”, contributing my expertise but also helping you realize your own power and abilities to make the shifts you desire in your own life.
The end goal is for you to have intentionally created your version of The Mindful Gut™.
Some fun facts about me:
I love pizza. A lot. Have I mentioned that already?
I play golf.
Find me and you find my dog, Rusty.
Rusty usually steps on a bee at least once a year so I am a huge fan of pet health insurance.
I love dancing, but I’m not great at it.
I always have to lie down when giving blood (#fainter).
I listen to tons of podcasts and love radio drama podcasts.
I was recognized Young Dietitian of the Year in California by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for 2014.
