Please join us as we sit down to speak with Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt, Hawthorn Alum and Founder of Redeemed Image™, as she introduces herself and shares about her unique nutrition-consulting journey. What started as a hobby quickly morphed into a passion and has taken her much farther than she could have anticipated. She taught her first nutrition class as a volunteer at a local women’s prison. Then she started a company in an effort to facilitate a way to further reach her community. AJ would have never guessed her simple hobby would become such a wonderful avenue for pouring back into her community. Whether you are studying nutrition as a hobby or have goals for a thriving career you will be encouraged by her story and simple message of service.
Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt presents Nutrition from Hobby to Passion and Beyond: Embracing the Fullness of the Nutrition Journey, on Hawthorn’s All About Alumni Webinar Series.
The nutrition-consulting journey need not slip into the mundane or grow stale. There is a fullness that comes to the journey when we allow the science of nutrition and the human aspect to intermingle. Join us as we “forget” about nutrition for just a moment and divert our attention to the wonderful journey it takes us on.
Amanda-Jo (AJ) Wilt completed Hawthorn University’s Nutrition Consultant Program in December 2017, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Her passion for nutrition started as a teenager and grew as a result of her various health struggles. AJ is the founder of Redeemed Image™, a Certified Color Analyst, minimalist, homesteader, chronic researcher, organizer, and a Certified Volunteer Chaplain Assistant (CVCA) with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), and a Holistic Nutrition Consultant. She started and ran a successful faith-based dorm in a local women’s prison where she also often served in the capacity of the unit chaplain. While volunteering she realized just how desperately the offender population needed education on nutrition and exercise. As it is said, “your gift will make a way” and indeed her gifts opened a door much wider than she could have anticipated. She was able to host weekly workouts and the many nutrition classes she taught quickly became unit favorites. AJ’s start as a nutrition consultant had a very unconventional beginning and her passion for the unconventional approach and client has only grown.
