Hi, my name is Amanda Haney (Legro). I am a registered dietitian and board-certified nutrition support clinician. I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. I later moved to Southern California to attend Cal State Long Beach where I obtained my undergraduate degree in nutrition and dietetics as well as my master’s degree in nutrition science. I completed my dietetic internship at Cal State Long Beach as well. And I love my alma matter so much that I have since returned to teach undergraduate courses in nutrition.
I practice medical nutrition therapy in the pediatric intensive care unit at Miller Children’s and Women’s Hospital Long Beach. As a clinical dietitian, I’m committed to providing my patients with high-quality nutrition care, to improve their well-being on their road to recovery.
I became a dietitian because I love food and I love medicine. There is so much misinformation about nutrition in the media. My passion is to make nutrition simple and to make your health goals achievable. In my free time, I love soaking up the beauty at the beach, riding my bike, staying active, cooking, and, most of all, spending time with my family and friends!
