She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona and Master of Science degree in Nutritional Science from California State University, Long Beach. Amy started her career as a renal dietitian, working with CKD Stage 1-4 and dialysis patients, in addition to research. After 5 years, she moved on to acute care to co-manage a parenteral nutrition team in conjunction with pharmacy counterparts. Her love for nutrition support eventually led her to home infusion which fulfills her passion for working with long-term TPN and enteral consumers. Amy has authored journal articles and patient-focused education pieces on nutrition, and served as the editor of the peer-reviewed Renal Nutrition Forum. As a nutrition support dietitian, she is passionate about creating safe transitions to the home for TPN and tube feeding patients, and enhancing support systems with the goal of keeping them at home. During her six years at Coram CVS/Specialty Infusion, she has held several roles and is most proud of improving care delivery for the home pediatric nutrition support patient. Amy is currently Coram’s Strategic Advisor for Nutrition Therapies, and guides the development and improvement of the home TPN and tube feeding program.
