Amanda Maucere is the wellness dietitian for Lung Health Institute. She’s been based in the Tampa, Florida, headquarters since 2018.
As the wellness dietitian for Lung Health Institute, Maucere provides nutrition support and counseling to patients who are following the Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™ (AI²™). She is also involved in improving and updating the AI² programs. Her goal is to simplify nutrition and help patients see how they can apply healthy dietary changes to the food choices they make every day.
Maucere earned her bachelor’s degree in biology and interdisciplinary sciences, with a marine science concentration, from the University of Georgia. She completed her master’s degree in health sciences, with a nutrition concentration, at Georgia State University. A registered dietitian, she has certifications in lifestyle, eating and performance (LEAP) therapy and sports dietetics. She is the owner and head dietitian at Nutrition WOD, the premier nutrition resource for functional fitness athletes. Prior to joining Lung Health Institute, Maucere held roles as a sports dietitian at U R CrossFit, a clinical dietitian at the Moffitt Cancer Center, a clinical dietitian with NuVista Living and a nutritionist.
Maucere’s background also includes military experience and a role as an assistant navigator with the United States Coast Guard on the USCGC Mellon. In fact, her time with the Coast Guard introduced her to her true calling — she fell in love with nutrition and food while she was stationed in Seattle, Washington, and got a taste of the Seattle food culture.
Maucere currently lives in Tampa with her husband and daughter. She enjoys gardening, hiking, scuba diving, playing board games and spending time with her family.
