Oh friends,  I’m so very proud to (finally) introduce you to my new Health Coaching business:

Wellness with Danica

Wellness with Danica Logo

-overcome life’s obstacles and build on a solid foundation of holistic health-

It’s a personalized 6-month program designed to fit your individual lifestyle and needs.

I work with men and women of all ages, and these are areas I specialize in:

  • overcoming emotional eating
  • lasting weightloss (a lifestyle change, not a fad diet)
  • healing hormonal imbalance
  • basic whole food nutrition and cooking education
  • brides-to-be who want to be ready for not only their wedding day but for a healthy marriage and life ahead

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, this will be an in-person program.

If you live anywhere else in the country, the program will be via Skype or phone call!

Please feel free to look around my website - you can read all about my approach to healthy living.

Sign up today for your FREE 50-minute consultation so we can chat and see if this program is a great fit for you!  I’d love nothing more than to work with you.


Thank you all for coming along with me on this adventure. Your love and support means more to me than you’ll ever know.

with so much love,

workout log: 11/16 – 11/22

November 22, 2014

With company here for most of this past time, I just did what I could, when I could.  And looking back on it all now, I’m really happy with it all. I often write a workout schedule for each week, but sometimes I really enjoy just winging it each day.  That’s the key with my exercises […]

Healthy Skoop {giveaway – closed}

November 18, 2014

Protein powder is a tricky topic.  There’s a lot of controversy about whether it’s really *healthy* or not! No matter what, I believe it’s not a food that should be eaten more than few times a week at most.  I feel that’s enough of it to get the desired benefits without overdoing it, plus we want […]

November 17, 2014

Hey everyone, I hope you had a nice weekend! My weekend was nice – overall very relaxing and laid back.  I purposely stayed away from my phone for most of the weekend, especially off of social media (this is necessary every now and then), with the exception of taking photos. Here are a few snippets I captured from […]

November 15, 2014

Just popping in on a Saturday to share my workout log.  I really didn’t spend much time running and found other workouts to do instead this past week.  I was really sore from playing tennis at the beginning of the week so I adjusting my plans according to that – a little extra yoga was […]
