Hi, I'm Danielle.

And that’s me in those photos, taken exactly one year apart. I experienced first-hand how powerful small habit changes can be; with them, I was able to reverse my chronic inflammation and reclaim my health and vitality (which you can see reflected in my face and in the renewed brightness of my eyes). As an added bonus, I also lost 20 pounds.

To get these results, I was tweaking my daily actions – making better choices than the day before, all while working in a demanding corporate job. My transformation was happening subtly. I hadn’t realized how dramatic my changes were until I saw this pic from the year before. My jaw dropped.


Danielle’s Before & After – the power of small habit changes.

It was in that moment that I became an absolute believer in the power of small habit changes. Why are being told that we have to do extreme or fad diets and go to the gym every day to improve our health? It’s simply not true.

In 2016, I quit my executive role to start One Degree Health, a wellness education and coaching company, named after the power of micro-habit changes. 

At One Degree Health, we help you get your health and vitality back through small habit changes, using evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine and Functional Nutrition Approaches. We provide private wellness coaching for individuals needing accountability and support, as well as personal development programs, including online nutrition courses.
