Amy studied food and nutrition at the University of Idaho. In her 20 years as a dietitian she has worked in numerous areas of healthcare including children with special health care needs, home health, people with kidney failure, and those struggling with their relationship with food and body. After struggling with her own autoimmune health challenge Amy began to deeply appreciate the power of food as medicine. Amy enjoys helping people harness the power of nutrition to promote optimal health. Her passion for kidney nutrition blossomed while working in the dialysis unit. It was there that she realized she wanted to help people preserve kidney health with the power of food. Amy wants to help people proactively so they can delay the progression of their condition.
When Amy is not busy running her household complete with husband, two children, and two dogs she enjoys hiking in the mountains, scrapbooking, writing, and serving in church. She hopes to finish her book by the time her kids graduate high school!
Two strengths that allow Amy to serve her clients well are compassion and communication. Theodore Roosevelt said it best with “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” It is my heart’s desire for people to be seen, heard, and empowered to move toward their health goal.
