Congratulations to Amy Panetta for graduating Summa Cum Laude from the Nutrition Consultant certificate program. Amy has 14 years of experience as an educator in music and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from Lebanon Valley College. She also earned a Masters degree in Ethnomusicology from the University of Limerick in Ireland, where she honed her skills in research. She believes that her prior training and education at Hawthorn has taught her how to empower women who are feeling stressed, weighed down, and exhausted to find balance, lose excess weight, and feel vibrant. In her thesis, Amy focused on the connection between chronic stress, allostatic overload, and obesity in women. She currently works with clients individually or in groups to create their own transitional approach towards a diet filled with lots of whole foods, helpful supplementation, and lifestyle changes. She offers nutrition consulting online, as well as outside of Montreal, Quebec and in the Burlington, Vermont area. In addition, Amy provides nutritional education to the community by presenting healthy food demonstrations to all ages at summer camps, schools, workplace wellness programs, churches, and senior citizen centers.
