North Carolina Licensed Nutritionist and Dietitian

Asheville Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian

Hi, I’m Denise, an Asheville nutritionist and registered dietitian. Like you, I have a complicated relationship with food and nutrition. As I moved into middle age, I suddenly realized, “I am not getting any younger!” So, I understand firsthand how vital my lifestyle is to feel great, stay healthy, and do everything I want to do!

I completed my BS in Food and Nutrition from the University of Missouri. After that, I finished my dietetic internship & MS in Nutrition and Dietetics from Saint Louis University. My graduate research on school nutrition policies was published in a scientific journal. And it was inspired by my son during his school years.

I moved to Western North Carolina in 2006 and started my private practice, Vine Ripe Nutrition. As a nutrition expert, I partner with clients to help them make food choices that improve their physical and mental well-being. In addition, I help them identify and remove their challenges to achieve success. There is no better reward than seeing clients feel their best, reach their goals, and feel more comfortable with their relationship with food!

I was fortunate to work for the largest clinical trial in the United States and the first significant study with women, the Women’s Health Initiative, for almost 10 years. Later, I had the opportunity to teach women’s health at the North Carolina University System!
