Amanda credits becoming a dietitian to her high school home economics teacher, and credits her love of food to watching her grandmother and family members cook at home. Before coming to Culina, Amanda worked at Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Oncology and ALS. It was there that she realized the need for more preventive nutrition care. Her passion for preventive care launched her into jobs where she provided 1:1 nutrition counseling, created nutrition programming for a large health insurance company, taught anti-cancer programs, and provided skills to equip SNAP educators to teach the basics of healthy eating. Amanda currently teaches nutrition for nursing students at a local university, where she hopes to elevate the importance of nutrition within healthcare.
Amanda takes a gentle, patient-centered approach to counseling. She assesses each patient as a whole and tailors her nutrition recommendations for lifelong wellbeing.
Amanda is a devoted wife and mother who loves gardening, cooking, traveling, hiking, and living a simple life.
