Hey there! I’m Danielle.
I’m an Integrative Culinary Dietitian, nutrition consultant, & veggie lover.
I’ve spent almost two decades helping women transform their health. I’ve worked with moms, busy executives, business owners, teachers, accountants — pretty much every type of woman under the sun. And they all have one thing in common: something is missing in the way they feel about their health. They’ve struggled with what to eat their whole life. They’ve deprived themselves of the foods they love. They have a diet mentality when it comes to being healthy… they’re either “on” it or “off” it.
My work helps to free you from this mindset and helps you align what you eat with who you really are.
I want to 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 the 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 the book 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.
An active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, I’m a 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.
