Background

I am Amelia, a licensed and registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) currently residing in Charleston, SC. My nutritional philosophy places a strong emphasis on harnessing the healing power of food. I find deep satisfaction in helping individuals facing various health challenges, such as blood sugar imbalances, women's hormone health issues including infertility and PCOS, food sensitivities, and autoimmune conditions like celiac disease. I can personally relate to these challenges, as I've experienced them myself. As a functional RDN, my primary focus is on uncovering the root causes of health issues for each client, empowering them to lead vibrant and healthy lives. I collaborate closely with clients to establish a solid foundation for their health, and when appropriate, I incorporate advanced testing like the DUTCH and GI Map. In my own life, I place great importance on daily physical activity. During my leisure time, I enjoy hiking and camping in the mountains, experimenting with new recipes and culinary innovations in my kitchen, and providing homeschool education to my daughter. My journey into the field of nutrition began with professional training as a chef and pastry chef, with extensive experience in restaurant settings and even owning my bakery specializing in customized, allergy-friendly baked goods. I hold a Bachelor's of Science degree in Nutrition from Johnson & Wales University in Denver, Colorado, and an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts. Over the course of nearly 18 years, I've dedicated my career to the hospitality industry, with the past decade specifically focused on my role as an RDN. This experience spans diverse environments, including hospitals, schools, private practice, and online fitness and nutrition enterprises. If you're searching for a quick fix, I want to stress that you won't find it here. My approach centers on understanding you and your body, and guiding you toward a personalized strategy that promotes healing from within. This approach is designed to help you achieve the results and goals you have in mind. Please remember that health is a lifelong journey, and I am committed to being your support throughout every step of this meaningful journey.
