About Amy Plano,
Growing up as a three-sport athlete, I always had a general interest in nutrition. If I wasn’t chasing a soccer ball, I was defending the net as an ice hockey goalie or taking shots on goal as a college lacrosse player. After college, I took up triathlons and since then have settled into Crossfit. Being active has always been a top priority! And not surprisingly, my love for all-things-food was a natural progression from my passion for fitness.
Prior to becoming a Private Practice Dietitian, I worked for 10 years at Yale New Haven Hospital as an outpatient nutrition specialist. It was during this time that I became Board Certified in Diabetes Education. Based on my strong clinical experience, there is really no type of nutrition need I cannot service! While a large area of my practice focuses on adult and pediatric weight loss, body composition, Sports Nutrition, PCOS, and diabetes – I am nonetheless trained in the dietary management of just about every avenue of nutrition including food allergies and intolerances, renal disease, GI disorders such as Crohn’s, colitis and IBS and vegan and vegetarian diets.
As a woman who is known to get up at the crack of dawn to get in a workout, I know how difficult it can be to strike a balance between health, work, family, and your social life. My goal is to educate and help you develop kick-ass strategies for getting your diet in tune with your lifestyle. My practice is built on over a decade of clinical experience, a passion for what’s possible and a commitment to helping you be the healthiest version of your own unique self.
My (smokin’ hot!) husband is an exercise physiologist and personal trainer to boot and he and I run and operate a wellness center called the Plano Program in Orange, CT. My practice is located inside of our training studio. I am currently accepting new patients for one-one nutritional counseling as well as family sessions. I am also available via SKYPE for visits as well. I currently accept most major health insurances including Anthem, Cigna, Connecticare, Medicare and Harvard Pilgrim for in-office visits. I welcome private pay clients as well. Please visit my Services Page for more information about pricing and scheduling an initial visit.
I cannot tell you how stoked I am you have stumbled upon my website! I look forward to seeing your smiling face in my office in the near future.
