Speaking Engagements

Professional, engaging, and informative sessions for the community, corporate wellness programs, and professional organizations.

Community and Corporate Wellness 

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and engaging, Dana will bring energetic and empowering presentations to your community groups and employee wellness programs. Less interested in telling you what to eat, Dana helps groups understand the “whys” of their current eating patterns, then arms them with practical strategies and tools to help them start making positive change. Her fresh perspective encourages people to think about food and nutrition in whole new ways.

Possible presentations include:

  • Why We Stress Eat and What You Can Do About It.

  • It’s Not You, It’s Them. How to Break-Up with Diets for Good.

  • Let Them Eat Cake! Pleasure: The Often Missing Ingredient for Sustainable Health-Supportive Eating.

  • Mindful Eating: A Practice That Will Transform the Way You Approach Food.
