Hi, I’m Amber! I’ve got a true passion for nutrition, eating well, cooking, and sharing this knowledge with others! I am from the lovely city of San Antonio, Texas. I have a Bachelor and Master’s Degree in Nutrition, and am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN).
Over the past few years, I’ve gained to be what I consider a really special set of nutrition skills. I started out working in a community setting that allowed me to go out and teach nutrition classes to people of all different ages, from small children through senior citizens, which I loved! I continued that for a while after becoming a dietitian, then had the very unique opportunity to work for a weight loss resort. There, I worked with people from all over the world - planning menus, teaching all about healthy eating and helping them reach their health goals.
My specialties include nutrition education/group presentation (I've taught hundreds of nutrition classes!), media appearances (cooking segments), weight loss coaching, recipe development, nutrition content creation, and more! I’ve also had the privilege of working with the Wounded Warrior Program for the past two years, where I get to teach nutrition classes, give grocery tours, and meet one-on-one with some really special veterans. On the side, I am the Food Editor for Nanny Magazine.
As I mentioned, I love to cook! Being in the field of nutrition, my main goal is to eat food that is both good for my body and also tastes delicious, so I work hard to create and transform recipes to be tasty and healthy. I’ve found some tried-and-true methods to lighten up foods without sacrificing the flavor and quality of the dish. I spend a lot of time experimenting in the kitchen and testing my creations on my brave husband (trust me, not everything comes out great on the first try!) I also love taking pictures of the recipes I create and of food in general.
When I'm not doing all things nutrition/food related, I enjoy running (I've got four half marathons under my belt so far!), traveling, outdoor stuff like hiking and kayaking, tending to my tiny backyard garden, and reading.
