Before entering the world of Holistic Nutrition, Amanda worked in the education system as a Child and Youth Counselor. Working with highly at-risk populations, Amanda started to notice a common thread – poor eating habits and choices being packed in lunches and served in cafeterias.  Amanda’s decision to start a family switched her focus from risk to wellness as she prepared her body nutritionally for pregnancy. Since the birth of her daughter, she has grown more passionate about health of the body, mind and spirit and the ripple effects it has on growing babies and children.

After living gluten and dairy free for almost 20 years and struggling with food allergies most of her life, Amanda continued to have health challenges. After years of chronic stress from her job and now experiencing sleep deprivation with her new baby, Amanda's health started to take a negative turn. Amanda sought knowledge and help from many sources and finally turning to the field of Holistic Nutrition for further healing. It wasn't until Amanda eliminated sugar from her diet that she noticed her health change in ways she could never have predicted. She left liberated from chronic ailments and found a new and exciting lifestyle, one that gave her more energy, better focus and more determination to live the life of her dreams.
