 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.

HISTORY:

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.

TESTIMONIALS:

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.”

WHAT MAKES Dana UNIQUE:

10 facts you may not know about Dana:

  1. I have been with Rebecca Bitzer and Associates for 6 years!
  2. I LOVE wiener dogs! I grew up with 3 miniature dachshunds. If I see one passing on the street I can’t help but ooo and ahh at them. My lab mix Korra is going to have a dachshund puppy brother sometime soon!
  3. My favorite animal is a flamingo. My favorite color is pink and their uniqueness intrigues me.
  4. My favorite foods are pizza, summer tomatoes, hummus, chicken pot pie, broccoli, tacos and Ranch dressing!
  5. I recently got into yoga and have been loving the feeling I get from it. I am not flexible what-so-ever (still working on touching my toes), but my dream has always been to be able to do a split. I am working on it…
  6. I didn’t know dietetics existed until I was a sophomore in college. In high school I was part of a program that allowed me to shadow different clinicians and at just 17 years old I was able to sit in on amazing things including 3 surgeries and even spent time in the nursery with the newborn babies. But never once did they set me up with a dietitian! I was undecided on what I wanted to major in but once the science and food came together it clicked.
  7. I love boots- all kinds but my most dear are my cowboy boots!
  8. I need to be on the water, there is nothing more serene to me than lounging on a boat with the sun on my face and cold beverage in my hand.
  9. I got married last year to my boyfriend of 7 years- we met at the University of Maryland. He is a physical therapist at Anne Arundel Medical Center.
  10. There is nothing that makes me happier than when my clients feel successful!
