About Aimee Smith

Aimee Smith is a 2022 graduate of NTI’s Nutrition Therapist Master program and Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition®.  She has also completed Level-1 certification in GI Functional Nutrition through Restorative Wellness Solutions. Before NTI, she spent her 28-year career as an RN in the hospital setting watching people get sicker and dealing with her own health issues.
