Who am I

Hi - I’m Christine and I am a GI-expert Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, the Co-Founder of Amenta Nutrition, and I LOVE food. I provide evidence-based nutrition counseling to both individuals and companies and I thrive on clarifying nutrition misinformation.

Why I decided to become a Registered Dietitian

The reason why I changed my career is based on my own personal experience. I had belly distress. As someone who has suffered from belly discomfort, changed her diet and alleviated her symptoms, I understand the power that food can have on one's well being and quality of life.

This experience encouraged me to attend graduate school at Hunter College where I received my Masters of Science in Nutrition.

My extensive training

I have since engaged in extensive training in gastrointestinal nutrition and attended many digestive disease conferences so that I have all the tools necessary to help clients rid themselves of belly (and intestinal) distress. I am a committee member of the Dietitians in Gut-Brain Disorders Workgroup and a Monash University low- FODMAP diet trained dietitian. I also have a Certificate of Training in Obesity for Adults.

Who am I

Hello, I’m April, and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and New York Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist. As co-founder of Amenta Nutrition, I provide medical nutrition therapy for conditions such as IBS, constipation, SIBO, and other digestive disorders as well as general nutritional counseling.

From being a model to Registered Dietitian

I did not take the traditional path to become a dietitian. As a model since the age of 14, I lived in several countries, and have been fortunate to work with some of the biggest names in fashion.

It resulted in my having a negative relationship with food. I would barely eat or try the latest fad diets to try and achieve what I believed was my idea of perfection.

My relationship with food

My relationship with food began to heal when I worked as an assistant to a chef. I realized that food was nourishment for the body and became a certified health coach. I quickly recognized that I didn't have the scientific knowledge nor the counseling background to have the greatest possible impact on others. I enrolled in Hunter College and received my Bachelors and Masters of Science in Nutrition. I have continued my education through various trainings and GI conferences. I am a Monash University low-FODMAP trained dietitian and also hold a Certificate of Training in Obesity for Adults.
