Danielle is amazing - She healed my inflammation and food intolerances almost immediately! Danielle has a wealth of knowledge and experience with nutrition, inflammation, gut health & wellness. Danielle was #7 on my list of medical doctors, specialists and consultants and she was able to immediately diagnose and provide an effective solution to my health problems that the other 6 were not able to offer. I plan to have Danielle work with my 2 teenage children in the future as well, to set them on a healthy path for nutrition and wellness - I highly recommend Danielle!
Danielle is the absolute best! Not only is she super knowledgable, but also super passionate about her work. I have worked with her for a little over a year and as a D1 college athlete, she has helped me develop meal plans that are realistic and sustainable. Since working with her, I have noticed a positive change in my performance in practice and games. I am eating more and eating foods that make me feel good about myself. Danielle is a great communicator and always available to answer any questions I may have. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with her and cannot recommend her enough!
Danielle is an amazingly compassionate, dedicated and knowledgeable person and professional. I was referred to Danielle during a time when I felt hopeless in how to help address and heal the various symptoms my teenage son was having. She was the one professional who I felt was truly listening to us and wasn’t going to quit until we had answers and solutions. She’s always made herself extremely accessible to my many questions and concerns and with her help, we found the culprit causing my son his issues. She’s worked with us on diet, a supplement protocol and a plan to get him feeling like himself again. I feel like we are in great hands and that we have a knowledgeable fighter on our team to reclaim my sons health. I cannot say enough good things about Danielle and I cannot recommend her enough. She’s been a gift to us and we are forever grateful to have found her.

About me

I originally earned her bachelor's degree in business administration from Central Michigan University where I was also on the Cheer Team. I received my Master's degree in nutrition and food science from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. A few years later I became a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and a Certified Leap Therapist (CLT). Currently, I'm working toward a certification in Integrative and Functional Nutrition.

I spent the first half of my career, in Sports Nutrition, where I had some amazing opportunities! I spent 6 seasons with San Francisco Giants who won World Series titles in 2012 and 2014. During that time I also worked with the U.S. Men's National soccer team and traveled with them to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals in Brazil. I have also worked with the Arizona Coyotes Hockey and Arizona Cardinals Football teams to help upgrade their nutrition, culinary, and supplementation deliverables. Also during this time, I was the Director of Performance Nutrition for a Performance Company, EXOS (formerly Athlete's Performance Inc). I not only worked with pro/elite athletes but also military, high-level executives, youth athletes, and worked heavily in our education department.

Now taking on a new venture I've found a deep desire to also incorporate integrative and functional nutrition strategies into my practice. I'm committed to helping individuals achieve their best health utilizing the most updated tools, technology, and research to do so. Therefore, whether you are seeking help with sports nutrition, injury rehab, digestive issues, or disease prevention I like to individually evaluate my clients and provide them with a well-researched and comprehensive plan they can follow to achieve their best self and health & wellness goals.

My Philosophy of Care

I had IBS as a teenager all through college until I met with a Registered Dietitian and started training for fitness competitions. My sleep improved, my stomach stopped giving me issues and my energy levels couldn't have gotten better. After that, I knew I wanted to pass on what I felt and learned.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Likes to take her time and ask a lot of questions.

I have worked with Danielle for a few months now and I can’t say enough amazing things about her!! I suffered a lot of stomach issues for over a year and it caused anxiety, weight loss, lack of appetite, among many other things. Fortunately, I was introduced to Danielle and in only a few months I was feeling tons better. I am excited to eat again, my symptoms have lessened significantly, I have learned about a lot of new foods and what it means to truly eat healthy and feel good. Being a professional soccer player, the improvements I have made to my nutrition and overall health have given my performance a big boost! Danielle is a phenomenal person who is not only very knowledgeable but also positive, encouraging, and understanding. She helped get my career back on track. I’m so grateful to have met her and hope to keep working with her for a long time!!
