The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
In this episode:
In this week’s episode Amanda Bullat, owner of Alpine Nutrition, shares with us how she helps women break free from diet culture using the principles of intuitive eating and Health at Every Size. We talk about how Alpine Nutrition has evolved since its inception and how Amanda’s had to give both herself and her business plans grace during the pandemic.
Amanda’s approach to healing is so unique and inspiring. It was a breath of fresh air to explore that with her because, personally, I think that nature can be very, very healing. You’ll hear how passionate Amanda is about her mission as a anti-diet dietician and how she’s using her personal love for nature professionally in order to help active middle-aged women learn how to SAVOR food & their body.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- The evolution of Amanda’s brand, ideal client, and marketing in her private practice
- The importance of nature in Amanda’s approach to healing
- Amanda’s professional goals as she continues to expand in her expertise.
