Anne received her Master of Science, Nutrition and Dietetics from NYU, is a board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian and Nutritionist in the state of Massachusetts, a USAT certified Level 1 Coach and certified personal trainer. She began her ventures into the wellness arena in the early 90’s working in gyms as a trainer and group instructor while pursuing an acting career in New York City.  

Always a runner, she volunteered for the New York Road Runners Foundation as a running coach serving public schools throughout the 5 boroughs providing after school running programs. Noticing the nutrition, or lack thereof, with her students, she designed a nutrition program and began writing nutrition articles for the Foundation. Intrigued by the field, she enrolled as a dietetics student at NYU and soon partnered NYU students and the Foundation, delivering a unique and interactive workshop, UrbanFUEL, regarding nutrition for ages 8-15.  

After graduation and relocating to the Boston area in 2008, Rollins was introduced to a local triathlon training group, QT2 Systems, looking for dietitians to help support their athletes via the sister company, The Core Diet. As a long time runner and endurance athlete, the fit was natural. She has gratefully been with the organization since.  Anne additionally worked clinically with the critically ill and dialysis patients before finding herself as the campus dietitian for Perkins School for the Blind where she provided individual counseling and menu design for students age 3-22.  

Rollins has promoted optimal nutrition while coaching boys soccer, to several Pop Warner football teams and a variety of football clinics and camps. She helped develop an off-season plan for her local football league to help players remain healthy off the field.

Additionally, Anne created and opened a lifestyle transformation studio outside Boston that embraces balanced fitness, nutrition, recovery and stress management for people of all ages and abilities. She is a proud mom of two invigorating athletic children who joined her in their very successful first triathlon, but returned to their passions of football and soccer without catching the tri bug…yet! Anne raced 70.3 for 4 years before tackling the full Ironman, and now has an ultra under her belt, as well. Anne is still an active Screen Actors Guild member.
