Hello and welcome! Allow me to introduce myself properly. I’m Amber or “RD amber” as I’m known in the twittersphere.

I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist passionate about food, nutrition science and agriculture.  I work as a freelance Nutrition Communications Consultant, Podcast Host and adjunct instructor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. When I grow up, I’d like to be a photographer or maybe a backup dancer.

bamberCouchI’m married to Ben, a startup entrepreneur and I’m a doggy momma to Jacques and Rigo. I’m the girl that laughs loudest in the theater and I hate elevators, escalators, and revolving doors.

Those who know me best would say that I like to stir the pot. I’m sassy, sarcastic and my nutrition views are based on science, not popular hype. My friends call me a “realistic nutritionist” because I don’t quite the fit the mold of the perfect dietitian. But I love good food, Nebraska, creating cool things and I’m passionate about building community.

I also have a podcast called Healthy Under Pressure, which highlights the stories and struggles of entrepreneurs and busy people learning to live healthy under pressure.

Stirlist is my playlist of recipes for entrepreneurs and busy people.

Are you ready to stir things up with me? Let’s do this!
