MORE ABOUT ME
How I Got My Start
I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner with a focus on nutrition, self-care, sleep, and mindfulness.
Based in Tucson, Arizona, Amanda Saffer Wellness, LLC., grew out of my lifelong passion for health and
well-being. Guided by a thoughtful and optimistic approach, I help clients and families improve their
overall wellness, achieve their goals and develop sustainable habits to live a healthy and happy life.
I am incredibly passionate about nutrition and health of my family, as a mom that is the stuff that keeps me up at night. After a long and frustrating road of navigating my health issues, my family's food allergies and
sensitivities (dairy and egg), and my husband being a vegetarian and how he should eat to support his heath;
I am finally starting to crack the case. Driven by the desire to help other families and in my constant
quest for information, I study the latest research, follow the top thought leaders in the area of wellness,
evaluate competing theories and read everything I can get my hands on. Most importantly,
I use this knowledge to make individualized recommendations for my clients.
Nothing makes me happier than when my family is eating well and enjoying the taste of their meals. I believe
in real, whole and organic foods. I like creating delicious, clean and nutrient dense meals and recipes, and
will happily share them with you! In our home, we have an emphasis on rest and downtime and making sure we get the right amount of sleep to function well the next day. All this, ties in with being mindful of your everyday choices.
Before starting my coaching business, Amanda Saffer Wellness, LLC., I was employed as a Cardiovascular Sales Consultant for a few different Fortune 500 companies, where I received numerous and continuing education
training on the cardiovascular system, type 2 diabetes disease state and cardiovascular-related diseases.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Arizona, in Interpersonal Relations where
I studied psychology, sociology, child development, and Family Studies and recently received a certificate in
Holistic Health Coaching with the largest nutrition school in the world, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
I passed the board certification exam for Integrative Nutrition Coaches, and am a Certified International
Health Coach, CIHC, and I am also a board certified Holistic Health Practitioner by
American Association of Drugless Practitioners, AADP.
Being with my family is the most important thing to me; we love traveling, watching all their activities,
and spending quality time together. I serve on boards for numerous organizations and fundraise for
children's charities. I am an advisor to my children's school district's Wellness Committee and serve on the
Executive Board of the Family Faculty Organization. I practice Pilates, yoga, foundation training,
and meditation, and I love taking walks with my husband and our rescue pups.
