About

Danielle is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Dietitian in the state of Washington. She holds a Master's degree in Nutrition from Bastyr University and completed her dietetic internship program through Sea Mar Community Health Center in Seattle, WA.

After working at Sea Mar Community Health Center as a WIC nutritionist, long-term care dietitian and outpatient nutrition counselor, she left to start a family and finally engage in her real passion -- starting a private practice to serve clients in South Seattle. Additionally she also spent time working as a WIC nutritionist at Swedish Medical Center in downtown Seattle and as a clinic shift supervisor at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health.

While Danielle works in all areas of nutrition counseling, she specializes in uncovering and treating food sensitivities, nutrition care for diabetes, digestive disorders (GERD, IBS, Crohn's) cardiovascular disease, weight loss, pregnancy, infants/children, and general wellness. She is certified as a LEAP/MRT Therapist, giving her access to the most accurate and successful treatment options for food sensitivities.

Also, as a strong believer in families working together for health, she has a passion for helping families establish healthy habits with food and encouraging them to work together to ensure optimal nutrition and lifestyle patterns. She recently completed advanced training in adult and pediatric obesity and has successfully counseled children and adolescents, along with their parents, in the areas of weight control and disease prevention.

Danielle is also an avid writer. While always trying to keep up on her personal blog and newsletters, she has also contributed several pieces to Today's Dietitian on a variety of topics including the latest research in Sjogren's Disease, updates on dietary strategies for pre-diabetes, the role of collagen supplements in human health, and the impact of nutrition on Covid-19.

In her spare time, Danielle loves hiking and backpacking with her husband and two boys, jogging around West Seattle, and baking all types of muffins.
