Born and raised in Glenwood Springs. Loves everything outdoors – mountain biking, hunting, camping, hiking…literally everything!
Amanda is Colorado Mountain Girl through and through. Born and raised in Glenwood Springs and a graduate from the University of Colorado with degrees in Psychology and Communication.
She learned quickly out of college that she can’t do what she loves if she did not spend time consistently focusing on her personal health and wellness. So after 10 years in the hospitality industry, she quit her job, got her Personal Training and Health Coaching Certifications and helped start TAC. That was 7 years ago. Today, Amanda is still committed to inspiring, cultivating and celebrating health and vitality throughout Colorado. Her aim with TAC is to assist individuals and organizations in total health and encourage awareness of health related issues to empower individuals to lead a healthier and fuller life.
Her life motto is: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.”
Favorite Quote: “Chance favors the prepared mind.”

For as long as I can remember, I have been an athlete. As a young child, I grew up running with my dad down the country roads of South Central Pennsylvania. A hobby transitioned to a passion, as I achieved many state medals and school records in middle and high school. I ran cross country and track and field on full scholarship for both the University of Richmond and Metropolitan State University. Post collegiately, longing for mountains and a change of pace, I moved to Colorado and never looked back. In 2012, I attempted to qualify for the Olympic Trials in the marathon but was just shy of the qualifying time. My current athletic pursuits include: trail and mountain running/racing, cycling, and ski mountaineering. In my free time, I also lead the Maroon Belles, a women’s trail running group in the valley, and race direct the Aspen Valley Marathon and Half Marathon.
Nutrition is a key piece of health and performance that many people overlook, even though food is deeply engrained in our lives. My passion for nutrition grew as I realized the overwhelming amount of misinformation that is given to the public on a daily basis. In 2013, I went back to school to obtain my B.S in Human Nutrition from Metropolitan State University and most recently completed my practicum hours of my Dietetic Internship with the University of Northern Colorado.
I strive to dig deeper with clients by critically analyzing nutrition status, simplifying evidence based nutrition information, and restructuring lifestyle habits to work towards their health goals. I use current evidence based medical nutrition therapy practices that integrate Eastern and Western nutrition principles to guide my recommendations. My specialties include: sports and performance nutrition, digestive issues, integrative nutrition, and weight management. I look forward to helping people unlock their missing piece to optimal health!

Range. As the lead dietitian in a local hospital, I became aware of the need for our community to have access to professionals trained in evidence-based medical nutrition therapy.
For many people, the image of a dietitian is someone in a white coat who hands out the menu at the hospital. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Health Coach, I assist people with the lifestyle and nutrition changes they want to manage their medical conditions. I specialize in nutrition for Adult and Pediatrics Weight Management, Chronic Disease Self-Management, Emotional Overeating, Cancer Survivorship, and Healthy Aging.
When not working with clients, I enjoy the incredible outdoor playground we live in! From hiking 14ers to music festivals, I’m loving it all.
