Philosophy of Care

A nutritionist helps move patients through evidence-based dietary adjustments that best fit their health needs and goals. They work from a whole-body wellness approach, acting as an educator and a coach to support real-life sustainable changes. Initial visits involve getting detailed health, social, and lifestyle history, as well as providing education, measurements, and collaboration of a plan. Follow up visits include a reassessment of measurements and adjustments to the plan as needed.  “I believe in patient informed care utilizing evidence-based nutrition when formulating a plan. I want to educate and collaborate with the patient to bring a sense of empowerment. My goal is for you to walk away from the visit with knowledge, empowerment and a renewed sense of motivation.”

Education

Danielle graduated from University of Bridgeport Connecticut with a Master of Science in Human Nutrition. Her undergraduate degree is from University of Alaska Anchorage with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and minor in Athletic Training. Danielle continues her education by attending conferences yearly in a wide variety of nutrition topics.
