Dana Gertschen, RDN


Owner of D.NRG Nutrition LLC

My mission is to provide dynamic nutrition and wellness strategies that can be applied through the development of strong habits and meaningful behavior change. I want to provide you with a genuine and valuable experience so you naturally feel inspired and empowered to conquer your health and wellness goals. 


My coaching approach encompasses both compassion and accountability. My nutrition philosophy includes intuitive eating alongside true mindfulness; what the body needs for nourishment and health in addition to what it needs to be fully satisfied. 

I’ll help you develop enjoyable and sustainable habits around food and movement so you can nourish your body properly, revive your energy, and find personal growth. I’d love to support you with realistic and sustainable approaches to meet your specific health goals.

I’m excited to get to know you, and I can’t wait to meet you.

D.NRG Nutrition was built on the foundation of realistic wellness solutions by providing personalized, comprehensive, and dynamic approaches towards each individual or group. Its mission is to empower individuals to reach their personal health and wellness goals through its coaching process while providing the tools and support needed to be successful.


I created D.NRG Nutrition for anyone who has a specific health and wellness goal they are trying to reach. Your wellbeing and goals will be prioritized throughout the entire process, which is specifically designed to be flexible and enjoyable yet effective. You can expect to be met exactly where you are with zero judgment while being fully heard and 100% supported.   

DISCLAIMER:  D.NRG Nutrition does not offer ineffective, quick fixes or diets. Your hard-earned money will not be wasted on detoxes or cleanses (companies who sell those products don’t want you to know you have organs in your body that do that for you already). No B.S. here, just authenticity and realistic, health enriching nutritional strategies that will have a meaningful, and long-lasting impact on your health and wellbeing.
