Amy has several years of experience providing medical nutrition therapy to a wide range of client populations. She graduated with a B.S. in Medical Dietetics from the Ohio State University in 1992, and has had the opportunity to work in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, long term care facilities, physician offices, diabetes clinics, community settings and was also involved with WBNS 10TV’s Healthsource Magazine in the late 1990’s.
Amy joined the Active Physical Therapy team in 2012. She currently provides outpatient nutrition counseling to individuals with a variety of diagnoses and nutritional goals. These include weight management/obesity, general health and wellness, diabetes, hypertension, celiac disease and food sensitivities. Amy is a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT) and has additional training in the testing and treatment of food sensitivities using the MRT (Mediator Release Test). The MRT measures your body’s level of immune reaction to 150 different foods and chemicals. Food sensitivity is often the root cause of many inflammatory conditions. Testing and subsequent diet and lifestyle change can bring relief to patients suffering from migraine, fibromyalgia, IBS and other inflammatory conditions related to food sensitivity.
Amy’s passion is helping people manage their health by establishing sound eating habits. She believes in the proactive prevention of disease and enjoys teaching clients how to navigate food labels, grocery store shopping and restaurant menus, as well as guiding them into making food choices that benefit their health while taking into consideration their individual needs and preferences. Amy and her husband Matt have a teenage daughter and son. She spends her free time with her family and enjoys reading and furthering her knowledge in the areas of nutrition and health.
