Hey there! I’m Danielle.
I’m an Integrative Culinary Dietitian, nutrition consultant, & veggie lover.
I’ve spent over two decades helping busy women like you transform their health. I’ve worked with single moms, executives, business owners, entreprenuers, teachers, doctors, accountants — pretty much every type of woman under the sun.
And all of you have one thing in common: you want to feel empowered when it comes to what you eat and how you eat.
You want healthy eating to come naturally, not as a form of punishment for eating “bad” or from a have- to, ought-to, or should way of thinking.
But you’ve been dieting for most of your life. And depriving yourself of the foods you love has become a habit. So now you’re either “on track” or “off track.”
My work frees you from this mindset. I teach you how to align what you eat with who you really are.
I help you get off the diet train, lose the food guilt, and discover what works for YOUR unique body.
I don’t encourage a diet mentality or harsh, unnecessary rules around food. Instead, I teach you how to create your own unique eating style, rooted in your needs, wants and desires – not what the latest fad diet or health guru tells you.
I’m not a vegan, but I do eat a plant-based diet. I eat the heck out of salmon. I love my coffee. I definitely crave a bowl of pasta and some crusty bread every now and again. What I don’t do is push my eating style on my clients. What I eat works for me, but it definitely doesn’t work for everyone.
I believe you always have a choice when it comes to what you eat, and my goal is to help you know what the best choices are for YOU.

Beyond my private nutrition counseling and group coaching programs, I share health and wellness strategies through corporate partnerships. I work closely with communications agencies, writing and developing recipes and providing spokesperson work for high-profile, multinational brands and commodities. I enjoy blending food photography with easy to understand messaging to engage my audience with style and sophistication. I am a content creator for My Fitness Pal and provided recipe development for Wild Blueberries of North America for four years.
I served for two years as the Hass Avocado Board’s Love One Today® Weight Management and Healthy Living Expert and I partner with Pure Encapsulations as a Nutrition and Integrative Lifestyle Expert.
As a health communicator and educator, I’ve made media appearances on national television and have served as an expert consultant for The Washington Post, The New York Times, and various lifestyle magazines and news publications. In 2015, I was commissioned to write my first cookbook Skinny Juices. In 2020 I released my second book, Super Green Smoothies.
I held a permanent teaching position in nutrition science for over 10 years, a commitment I started while earning my Masters degree in Health Sciences.
As a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, I served as Past Chair for both the Dietitians in Integrative & Functional Medicine (DIFM) and the Council on Dietetics Practice for the Northern Virginia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
