Amy is the proud founder of Metrowest Nutrition, serving over 3,000 patients in the MetroWest/ Boston area. As a child, Amy watched several relatives develop serious, chronic health conditions, learning the importance of nutrition in managing them. In her teens, Amy became aware of the extreme societal pressure around body image, while also seeing how the way she fueled her body affected her athletic performance.
Amy’s early interest in nutrition and health led her to seek a bachelor’s in Clinical Nutrition at UNH. She went on to pursue a master’s from NYU, while completing a dietetic internship at the Bronx VA Medical Center.

As Lead Nutritionist at the Klarman Eating Disorder Program and through consulting to several other programs at McLean Hospital, she developed a deep understanding of eating disorders and other complex psychiatric illnesses.
