As founder of Rebecca Bitzer & Associates, I thought you would enjoy a monthly blog focusing on each of our dietitians AKA My Time to Brag about our AMAZING team. This month, I am featuring our dietitian Dana Magee.
Dana has been with Rebecca Bitzer & Associates for SIX years! Originally from Pennsylvania Dana had always had an interest in biology and considered going pre-med. As a young high school student she was accepted into an allied health program where she spent half of the day in the hospital setting shadowing physicians. She was even able to sit in on surgeries and spend time in the maternity unit with the newborns.
In this experience Dana had not yet found where in medicine she was passionate about and started at the university of maryland as an undecided student. Dana has always had a love of food and the experience in college opened her to new food traditions, cuisines and people with a much different food experience. This lead Dana to attend a Dietetics workshop and the rest is history. Dana Graduated with her degree in dietetics and found her way to private practice working with RBA.
Here is what clients are saying about Dana:
“You know your stuff, and it does wonders following your prescriptions. Ever you ever had doubts, please don’t. You are in the right line of business that you are wonderful with. Dana, I thank you for caring for and helping my dad. Thank you so much. You were so kind to help him on short notice. It means heart and soul to me. Thank you! Thank you!”
“I hope to see you again. You’re one of the few people I trust and one of the best care providers I’ve ever had the pleasure to have known. Yes, I know where I can find you. Thank you for yoga, nutrition, diet, calm app, and everything! Thank you so much.”
“Thanks for reaching out. I very much enjoyed meeting with Dana! I feel she is a good fit for for me & my nutrition questions. Dana especially exhibited a level of compassion I don’t experience in the average provider – especially not on the 1st visit – so I’d like to highlight that very positive trait of hers.”
“Working with Dana has been truly life-changing. Dana is a true cheerleader and has been a critical step in helping me repair my relationship with food. She is incredibly kind and supportive. Her assistance with meal planning and working to get rid of my self-imposed “food rules” has been eye opening, and I have enjoyed a healthier relationship with food and myself as a result. I have struggled with restricting and then binging the majority of my life and now working with Dana, I see that healing is possible.”
Dana is co author of Taste the Sweet Rebellion: REBEL Against Dieting Workbook which helps readers improve their relationship with food and find joy in eating and cooking again. Here Dana is promoting pasta, a food that often gets villainized by the diet industry, at the Food and Nutrition Conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
Dana is featured in our Mayhem to mealtime videos that illustrate just how quick and easy eating healthy can be. You can find these recipes in our Workbook and the videos on our website!
One of Dana’s favorite tools to teach her clients about it intuitive eating and utilizing the hunger scale to better connect their mind and body and what they are eating.
