Aminah Herzig

School Programs Manager

Aminah is a graduate of Framingham State University’s coordinated program in dietetics. She
has a background in clinical and community nutrition. Aminah has worked as a group facilitator
and nutrition counselor to provide up to date nutrition information while addressing physical
activity, barriers to change, and self-esteem. Her teaching methods emphasize mindful eating
and focusing on moderation rather than complete food elimination, when possible. Aminah’s
areas of interest include community nutrition, healthy eating on a budget, and exploring food
access in communities.
During the pandemic and in partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank and local food
pantries, Aminah worked to put together boxes of fresh and balanced meals and catered it to
the particular needs of families and individuals, while taking into account cultural food
preferences, food allergies and intolerances, which allowed for greater food access and less
food waste.
During the pandemic, Aminah also worked within the Chelsea school district as manager of
COVID-19 operations. This role allowed a greater insight into the struggles to achieve wellness
during the pandemic and a greater appreciation for those in public health roles.
Aminah aims to bring her enthusiasm and desire to grow and learn more about the needs within
the community in the role of School Program Manager.
