Having been an athlete her entire life, Danielle has always had an interest in diet and exercise. While obtaining her degree, she always assumed she would pursue a career working with other athletes. However, once she started practicing as a dietitian nutritionist, she found that her passion lay within weight management, wellness and disease prevention/management. She found it rewarding to help clients make dietary and behavioral changes that will impact and change their lives forever. Some of her greatest success stories are clients who have lost 100+ lbs, reversed diabetes, discontinued medications and best of all… improved their quality of life.
My name is Danielle Burge. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Partner at Your Wellness Consultants, LLC. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and have been an athlete my entire life, which has built competitiveness and drive to success that I apply in my personal and professional life.
I developed a passion for nutrition while playing Division 1 volleyball at LaSalle University where I realized the impact of a healthy diet helped my improve on my performance goals.
I have been practicing nutrition since 2011. I started my career working part-time as a clinical dietitian at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital and part-time at AFC Fitness. In 2013, I started transitioning into private practice and currently work solely in private practice.
Healthy foods nourish our body. It can prevent chronic disease, increase energy levels and decrease inflammation. I encourage my clients to make the best food choices to improve their health not only today but everyday the rest of their lives.
The 80/20 rule. Eat healthy 80% of the time and treat yourself 20% of the time. The mentality that you can never indulge in a piece of cake or slice of pizza is unrealistic and is setting you up to fail. I think treating yourself in moderation helps you stay on track!
