Ami HigbeeAmi, Clinic Director

An Ideal Protein clinic director and self-proclaimed “foodie,” Ami has some great ideas for how to enjoy fixing delicious, fun and fast food…even as you’re losing weight. If there is a dish you are missing…just ask…Ami can help you re-create something that will help satisfy your craving! In case you didn’t know, Ami is a graduate of the Ideal Protein protocol as well.

When it comes to understanding what’s going on in the body, Ami’s got that, too. She is an RN(Registered Nurse) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She’s had years of experience *inside* the body as a Certified Nurse in the Operating Room.

Ami enjoys country living, with her husband and two children near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She enjoys “playing in the mud” both through gardening and creating pottery. Ami feels very strongly about growing healthy foods for her family and encouraging the kids to participate in the process. The family shares a love of soccer and enjoys traveling with the kids competitive teams.
