Danielle’s love for nutrition began during childhood. Her father taught her how to make healthy food choices while grocery shopping, after which they would go home and cook the foods they purchased. Danielle was also a young
athlete–participating in soccer, softball, and karate–which drove her interest in properly fueling her body for her activities. Danielle attended the University of Delaware’s renowned Dietetics program, where she participated as a research
assistant, sports nutrition intern, and created a nutrition program for her sorority that still exists today. She has worked as a school food service
manager for the NYC DOE, as a clinical dietitian in long-term-care, and as an adult and pediatric renal dietitian for Davita Dialysis. She also has a robust background in cooking from her days managing kitchens.
Danielle takes a collaborative approach to patient care, asking questions that help her meet patients where they are and make change at their pace. She help to motivate change in her patients by providing them with the proper skillset to meet their health goals. Danielle takes a HAES (Health at Every Size) approach to nutrition care and promotes intuitive eating.
In her free time, Danielle practices karate and is currently a second-degree black belt. She and her husband are also part of various soccer leagues across NYC and NJ. Together they have a loving goldendoodle named Bagel that they adore and spoil. Danielle is a major foodie and spends time hunting for new eateries, and hosts dinners for friends and family!
