I’m Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, a nationally recognized, award-winning registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), media personality, spokesperson, media coach, and writer in Stamford, CT.

That’s about one hour outside of New York City. I run two businesses, Plant Based with Amy, and Master the Media

As a longtime vegetarian and now pescatarian RDN, my focus is in inclusive plant-based eating.

My goal is to get everyone eating more plants—no matter if you’re vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or just plant curious! I want to make plant-based eating easy for you. 

I’m a regular contributor to the media and am one of the most-quoted media dietitians in the country.

I’ve completed and written more than 2,000 combined media interviews and freelance articles for top-tier media outlets.

As a top-tier media RD, I’ve  been interviewed by hundreds of media outlets—including The Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, New York Post, Self, Shape, Prevention, Women’s Health, and Everyday Health.

My on-air portfolio includes CBS Up to the Minute, CBS Power Up Your Health, NBC News, the Associated Press, Everyday Health, and more.

I’m also a frequent contributor to highly regarded publications, including Food Network, Parade, Reader’s Digest, NBC, Fox, Shape, Woman’s Day, Women’s Health, and more.

As well, before I went back to school to become a dietitian, I held nutrition and health editor positions at Health, Prevention, Weight Watchers Magazine, WeightWatchers.com, Parents, and American Baby. 

I love to play in the kitchen and create healthy, delicious recipes. Several of these have appeared in The Runner’s World Vegetarian CookbookThe MIND Diet, Runner’s World Meals on the Run, and The Runner’s World Cookbook. I enjoy sharing my recipes with the world on my blog, Plant Based with Amy

I’m proud to have served as a judge for the 2018 UpwaRD program for up-and-coming RDNs, a 2018 and a 2017 Unilever Agent of Change, and an April 2016 Today’s Dietitian Magazine RD of the Day. Additionally, I’m a member of the Greatist Expert Network and the Meta Boost Leaders Network.

I love sharing my media knowledge with other health professionals through a free media bootcamp, as well as a 6-month media coaching program. (Bonus! It offers 65 CPEUs to registered dietitians.)

In addition to speaking on panels and presenting to companies, I serve as a spokesperson, consultant, and recipe developer to food- and nutrition-focused brands and commodity boards—helping to create effective media messaging, conducting interviews, and developing recipes. 

To obtain my education in nutrition, I completed my Dietetic Internship at Utah State University and her Didactic Program in Dietetics at New York University. Becoming an RDN requires the completion of 1,000 supervised practice hours and the passing of the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s dietetic registration exam. 

To maintain the RDN credential, a registered dietitian must complete 75 continuing-education hours every five years. I’m a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Nutrition Entrepreneurs Didactic Practice Group, and the Dietitians in Business and Communications Didactic Practice Group. 

Additionally, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Art Studies from the University of Florida, as well as a Master of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University. 

My husband, Lawrence, and I live with our two cats, Garfield and Nermal (who have their very own Instagram account!).
