Meet the Team
Meet Amanda CEO
Hi! I’m Amanda, Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist and Business Coach. I am also a Certified LEAP Therapist, Mindset Coach, and Certified Aromatherapist. My passion lies in helping you ditch the diet culture mindset and adopt a more sustainable way of eating that is aligned with what your body needs.
In my over 20 years experience, I’ve helped 400+ women and men move past the fear of not eating the “right thing.” In learning to let go of restrictive diets, they successfully adopt an “all-foods-fits that are safe for you” approach. The result is that they are able to not only lose the weight, but keep the weight off for good!
My story started in the dance industry, at the young age of four and I went on to dance on professional teams, including for Cleveland sports. And while dance was such a positive activity in my life, it also validated my need to try and be perfect. I found myself wanting to carry this into all areas of my life, including my work, the way I exercised and ate.
It wasn’t until after I had my son that I realized what I was doing. I tried to lose weight and couldn’t. I was mentally stuck in the world of perfectionism. The most frustrating part is that I was helping other women and men lose weight, but I couldn’t get out of my own way.
I spent nearly 15 years, 782 weeks, 5,478 days, and 7,889,232 minutes comparing my body and my progress in life to other women and now I’ve dedicated my practice to make sure that you don’t have to!
My experience in healthcare and corporate management set me up with the skills to open my own practice in 2015. I was teaching group fitness classes and realized that my students could greatly benefit from my help. I began teaching clients how to eat mindfully, intuitively, and balance macros to create boundaries so their bodies had better overall balance.
My coaching and courses offer a full-circle approach to nutrition, extending beyond an “eat this, don’t eat that approach.” I help you become more aware of how you think and feel around food so that you can build healthy habits that stick.
And as a trained clinician, I can also help you improve your physical health with things like blood sugar levels, digestion and gut health. Since there is a heavy connection between autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s and metabolism, I see a lot of clients who desire to control inflammation, in addition to losing weight, which is why our most recent add of MRT® Food & Chemical Sensitivity Testing fits our portfolio perfectly!
MRT® Food & Chemical Sensitivity Testing is a patented and state of the art test that helps provide you more targeted nutrition support by identifying foods that cause your body to live in a state of inflammation. Feeling chronically tired, sluggish, bloated or battling unexplained migraines can interfere with the quality of your life. This testing provides the information you need to embrace safe foods for you and the coaching provides the guidance and application to sustain that way of eating long term.
I’ve personally gone through this testing and followed a specific nutrition approach that has helped me optimize my own health. And now it’s your turn to begin your transformation and start living your best life, whether it’s through one of our individualized nutrition coaching programs or our food sensitivity coaching packages. We have various levels of support to provide you with the full body transformation you’ve been looking for.
Meet Becky MS, RDN, CLT,
Hi, I'm Becky! I spent 13 years of my career as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in the hospital setting helping hundreds of patients improve their nutrition and lower their risk of chronic illness. The power, though, is truly in the prevention and not the treatment of disease, which is why I’m so excited to be here with all of you at Nutrient Rich Life!
I’m an open book when it comes to sharing my own health journey, from my history of eating disorder to my healing journey with Hashimoto’s. This makes it easy to relate to what you are thinking, feeling and struggling with!
Most recently, I’ve dedicated time expanding my knowledge in the area of food sensitivity, and now as a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT), I’m specially trained to help you identify foods that may be keeping you sick and inflamed and develop an individual roadmap for you to keep inflammatory markers low long term, ultimately reducing your risk of chronic disease. I’ve personally gone through the process of identifying which foods my body is sensitive to and can speak personally to its amazing results.
Together with my science education and real-life experience, I’m ready to make sure you can live the most “nutrient rich life” possible, seeing change without (safely) giving up all of the foods you love!
