Get To Know Dani
- Sometimes it gets harder before it gets easier.
- You get what you put in.
- You are the most important person on your treatment team.
My best friend had an eating disorder all through middle school and high school and would always talk about how much she loved her dietitian!
Either a stand up comedian or a professional pimple popper.
I want to help clients reach their own individual goals. Whether that is independence, graduating school, food and body freedom or to be able to eat at a restaurant with their friends, I am here to help you achieve the goals the eating disorder is getting in the way of.
Running, eating at new restaurants, hanging out with my friends and family, FaceTiming my nieces, and walking my 14 year old Husky Mia with my husband.
I started my undergraduate studies in food engineering!
During undergrad and my dietetic internship I interned at a private practice in Indiana and multiple ED treatment centers in Nashville and St. Louis. After becoming a dietitian in 2017, I began working at The Ranch Recovery Center outside of Nashville at their residential eating disorder program. I worked at the Ranch for a year and decided I wanted to move back to St. Louis to be closer to my family. I then worked at Castlewood/Alsana for 4.5 years. I worked in residential, PHP, and IOP levels of care during my time at Castlewood/Alsana. At the start of COVID, I saw how detrimental it was to people’s recovery and getting help was very difficult due to the circumstances of the pandemic. In addition to my treatment job, I began seeing clients on an outpatient level and have been working with clients outpatient since 2020.
