Meet Amy RDN, LD
Assistant Coach

Hi!! I’m Amy!  I spent the first 9 years of my career as Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in a hospital setting helping patients throughout their chronic illness journeys to improve their health with nutrition. I realized early on in my career I wanted more, I knew I could help people in a different way.

In 2012, I landed a job in an Outpatient Oncology Center, and there I helped hundreds of patients with their nutrition throughout their cancer treatments. Helping patients before their treatments began, during while experiencing the side effects that may contribute to the lack of nutrition, and even after to assist with weight gain or weight loss or pinpointing any nutrition deficiencies.

I also provided nutrition outpatient counseling for various diagnoses and went into the community as a key speaker in nutrition in varied health topics throughout the year.  In 2018, became the Lead Clinical Dietitian, in which I managed the clinical team, and continued to provide nutrition care to patients in the oncology setting.  I recently accepted a position at another Outpatient Oncology center within a bigger health organization within the Cleveland area.


With 19 years of experience as a Clinical Dietitian in various settings, my passion for helping and teaching nutrition to others has only grown, which is why I feel I was called to be here with you all at Nutrient Rich Life!


I have a passion for running and working out. Started in high school when I played basketball.  Once basketball was over, I missed it and was always looking for the next fun thing to do.  I started running, and never looked back. However, when I was younger it was more like running to “lose weight, or stay thin” than to feel better.  I never ate to fuel my runs, always tried to count calories, and eat all the low-fat foods. It was not until I became a dietitian that I researched more and learned about eating to fuel and how and why food is so important.


Throughout the years as I had kids and just getting older, I have dealt with my own struggles. I get chronic migraines, have had high blood pressure, was once on medications for this, and my fasting glucose started to creep up. As a dietitian, I knew I could tweak my lifestyle to improve my health.


I became more into running and weight training. I completed my first half marathon in 2017, and have completed 4 in total!  I have done numerous 10k, as well as 5ks!  I researched how to properly fuel and hydrate myself throughout the training phases of the half marathons and quickly started to realize the differences in how I felt with my runs.  With these diet changes, I also noticed my blood pressure lowering, got off the high blood pressure medicines and my fasting blood glucose was down.  With my migraines, I see when I don’t eat and fuel myself properly I am plagued with horrible migraines.  I have made diet changes and realized certain foods can trigger or make my migraines worse.

I hear all too often from others, “Your so good you don’t eat that”, referring to donuts, cakes, etc. when it’s a lifestyle you don’t miss these things, and/or you don’t like them. Which is the case for me.  I am more in tune with my body, knowing food triggers my migraines as well as the foods to properly fuel my runs.  I know with my clinical, science background and years of experience I am ready to help you eat to live not live to eat.  I am ready to help you feel your best to do your best!! Together we will remove the “diet” culture and provide a lifestyle that fits YOU! I am ready to help you!
