Amanda is the office manager at Culina Health. She grew up in upstate New York, and moved to the big city to attend college at Fordham University. It was at Fordham that Amanda discovered her passion for nutrition. After putting on the freshman 15 (well, maybe the freshman 36, but who’s counting?) she began experimenting with different eating and exercise habits. She soon came to realize how enjoyable and simple nutrition could be, and how practicing proper nutrition positively affected her body - physically, mentally and emotionally.
After graduating with a degree in Journalism, Amanda worked in sales and marketing for a year, before making a complete 180 and going back to school for nutrition. She received her Master’s degree in Nutrition Science, and plans to begin her dietetic internship at New York University Fall 2020. In less than a year, she’ll be a registered dietitian!
When she’s not working at Culina Health, you can find Amanda reading nightmare-inducing thrillers, singing loudly and quite out of tune on a spin bike, playing with her nieces, or baking up a storm in her kitchen. Oh, and she also has a habit of taking pictures of everything she eats - evidence of which can be found on her Instagram @amanda.ghee. Her favorite foods are gooey chocolate chip cookies, cherries, dark chocolate covered almonds, and sushi!
