Amy is the proud founder of Metrowest Nutrition, serving over 3,000 patients in the MetroWest area. As a child, Amy watched several relatives develop serious, chronic health conditions, but realized these could be managed through everyday lifestyle changes. In her teens, Amy became aware of the extreme pressure society placed on body image, while also seeing how the way she fueled her body affected her athletic performance. All these life moments lit a fiery spark within Amy, compelling her to seek a bachelor’s in Clinical Nutrition at UNH. She then pursued a master’s from NYU, while completing a dietetic internship at the Bronx VA Medical Center.
At the VA hospital, Amy became the Outpatient Dietitian in the Renal Dialysis, Hematology, Immunology and Oncology clinics. Eventually she moved on to become Outpatient Dietitian at Boston Medical Center, where she learned the strong connections between socioeconomic status, psychology and health. Next, Amy accepted a position in an eating disorder program at McLean Hospital, developing a deep understanding of eating disorders and other complex psychiatric illnesses. When the Klarman Eating Disorder Center for adolescents opened in 2003, Amy accepted a position as Senior Nutritionist, where she found her calling for management. In 2005, Amy took a leap of faith into private practice and in 2011, Metrowest Nutrition was born.
Amy also leads school programs for PK through college and provides business consultation to other registered dietitians.
