2017 is a year of growth for FEED, including welcoming a new dietitian to the practice! We are excited to welcome Amanda Lemein, MS, RD, LDN as our resident adolescent and adult specialist.
Amanda has been working with Lara over the last three years, but 2017 marks her first full time role with FEED. Prior to obtaining a Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics and becoming a Registered Dietitian, Amanda worked in media and public relations, including roles at Weber Shandwick and in-house public relations for Four Seasons Hotels. Her passion for nutrition complements her media background as she offers sound, scientifically-based nutrition advice, and helps clients break through the often confusing media messages surrounding nutrition and health. Amanda has both clinical and counseling training, including work with Joy Bauer, the nutrition and health expert for NBC’s TODAY show and Woman’s Day Magazine, specifically working with women at-risk for cardiovascular disease.
Amanda’s nutrition philosophy aligns with FEED’s mission, as she believes eating healthfully includes balance and a realistic approach.
