Amanda completed her Bachelors of Science in Applied Health Sciences, Dietetics at Indiana University-Bloomington with a minor in Psychology in May 2014. Following, she went on to obtain her Masters of Science in Health and Human Performance with a Nutrition Emphasis from McNeese State University while simultaneously fulfilling the 1200+ hour supervised practice required for her dietetic internship at a variety of locations around the Lake Charles, LA area. She returned to Bloomington, IN and became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist after sitting for the RD Exam in February 2016. Since then she has worked as an inpatient and consulting dietitian. While doing this work she has had the opportunity to work with a variety of patients, clients and other professionals and has developed a nutrition philosophy and fine tuned her approach to best address each individuals needs.
Leaving her consulting job to pursue private practice full time in 2018 allows her to focus on clients one on one-she hopes to continue to work with clients, brands, and other professionals to help more individuals find joy in the what they eat, how they move and their body image.
To best serve her clients (and to keep that hard earned RDN credential) she is constantly pursuing further education through workshops, webinars, online and in person trainings, reviewing research, reading books on HAES/Intuitive Eating, Body Image and Eating Disorders, and pursuing peer supervision from more knowledgable colleagues. Her professional goals currently include to become an Intuitive Eating Counselor and a CEDRD (Certified Eating Disorder RD).
