Work with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Asheville

Welcome to Vine Ripe Nutrition!

I’m Denise, an Asheville registered dietitian nutritionist with over 20 years successfully helping people just like you learn how to make food choices that improve your quality of life!

What does a Nutritionist Do?

As your personal dietitian, I will share tools, meal-planning and recipe ideas that will help you nurture healthy eating habits into your daily routine and make life easier.

There is no one size fits all when choosing the best foods or meal plan, so you and I will work together to create your personalized nutrition plan which is based on your health goals, nutrition needs and existing health concerns to help you get to where you want to be!

Payments for Nutrition Services

As your Asheville dietitian nutritionist, I am a preferred provider for Blue Cross, Blue Shield of North Carolina and Federal Plans as well as the NC State Employee Health Plan.

If you have one of these plans as your primary insurance, it may cover for your visits.

This includes telehealth services!

If for any reason, your insurance does not cover services, I also provide special discounted prepaid packages.


Since working with Denise, I feel more empowered around food than I have in a long time!


Denise inspires me to make healthy changes and helps me continue to evolve. Thank you for your encouragement!
