Amanda decided to pursue a career in healthcare while she was an undergraduate at Texas A&M in College Station. After graduating with a degree in nutritional sciences, she went on to obtain a Bachelor's in nursing at West Texas A&M. Amanda wanted to combine her love for nutrition and nursing, so she attended Texas Woman's University for a Masters in nursing, specializing in family practice. As a nurse practitioner, she realized she not only wanted to treat disease, but to optimize health. Thus, Amanda earned a certification in diabetes education and began the path to certification in functional medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine. Amanda currently lives in the Texas panhandle, where she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, baking sourdough bread, and taking long walks with her Boston Terrier, Penelope.
