Senior Nutritionist and Sports Scientist
Versatile nutritionist and wellness professional with progressive experience conducting detailed nutrition consultations
and creating personalized plans to meet the needs of each client combined with ardent advocacy of nutritional education teaching to promote healthy lifestyles.
Hello, my name is Anna-Maria,
I am a registered sports nutritionist (SENr, INDI), scientist, and a 200-hr certified yoga teacher. I have worked with a variety of young and competitive athletes e.g. swimmers, artistic swimmers, football and basketball players, marathon runners, cyclists, bodybuilders, gymnasts, and tennis players. From a very young age, I realized the importance of nutrition, physiology, exercise, and psychology, and how these principles can affect a person’s life and an athlete’s performance.
I was a competitive athlete in Artistic swimming since the age of 10 years old, and I was immersed in the Mediterranean way of living from a very young age, as I grew up in the beautiful island of Greece, Crete. All these led me to my decision to study both sports nutrition (Oxford Brookes University) and physical education and sports science (National and Kapodistrian University of Greece). I believe that every individual deserves to start and sustain a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Education is what is needed so that everyone can change his/her habits for the better. I work with individuals by introducing to them the benefits of healthy eating, healthy cooking, hydration, sports nutrition, choosing right meal options for before, during and after training/competition, and by showing people the benefits each type of exercise can offer to their body. I can help you create vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free, and high-in-protein balanced meal plans, as well as Mediterranean diet-based menus.
I have also worked for over 4 years now in the food industry, analyzing a variety of different and very complicated recipes. Thus, teaching you how to choose healthier meal options and how to read the food labels is an area I specialize in, too. I really want every person I work with to become the best version of him/herself and to achieve and master his/her vitality! Every individual is unique, and this is how I approach every person I work with.

Martha holds a degree in Geography – Environmental Ecology (BA) from the University of Bologna in Italy.
In 2005 she started working as a journalist in a Greek Media Group, first as an Editor and then as Editor in Chief and Publishing Director in magazines and sites. She has participated in humanitarian field trips in Africa, and in 2019 she officially founded the Food Security Center, aiming to strengthen the capacity of formal and informal education institutions in Europe and Africa by integrating activities and programs that include wider environmental issues, maximizing the opportunities of food security, sustainable development and poverty reduction, as well as promoting gender equality and indigenous knowledge.
In 2022 she enrolled for a master’s degree in Digital Communication in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Pavia aiming to combine it with her previous degree in Environmental Ecology in order to promote sustainability and other environmental issues through green education, marketing, and communication strategies.
Martha and Anna-Maria met and worked together for Akis Petretzikis Ltd, the company of a famous/wellknown TV chef in Greece, where they ran a variety of different projects together such as the creation of educational material related to nutrition and health for primary schools, which was accepted by the Greek Ministry of Education to be taught at schools from September 2022 and onwards. At amvnutrition.com, you will have the opportunity to read some of Martha’s work regarding the environment, sustainability, seasonality, and food waste.
