Denise graduated Cornell University in 1994, and received an MS in Applied Physiology and Nutrition from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2000. She was also certified as a functional medicine practitioner in 2018. She believes in an individual, integrative, client-based approach to weight loss, health, and wellness.
Denise has been practicing in the nutrition field since 2000 and has worked in a variety of settings ranging from hospitals and nursing homes to private practice. Currently, she is working at a community health center and doctor’s office where she helps clients with weight loss, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and digestive issues.
After an injury and long recovery, Denise became interested in personal training, and decided to become certified in order to help better educate others about being fit and functional. The combination of diet and exercise enables her to have a greater impact on the health and wellness of clients. Denise believes that optimal health and well-being cannot be achieved without combining nutrition and exercise together.
