Dana Harrison, MS is a nutritionist and educator based in Central MA and Greater Boston. With an undergraduate degree in biology from Vassar College, Dana was on the pre-med track until she took two classes senior year (one in education and the other in nutrition) and had an “aha” moment. Upon entering graduate school at University of Massachusetts Amherst for nutrition science (with a community nutrition concentration), Dana gained a strong interest in health promotion via combined nutrition and exercise efforts. Her graduate coursework, teaching experiences, and fascination for nutrition as a science reinforced her desire to pursue nutrition education.

As a nutritionist and educator, Dana has a simple approach to nutrition, health, and wellness. Her philosophy: eat, move, love, and learn. It’s all a balancing act. Whether you’re a firefighter, college student, or working mom, etc., Dana’s goal is to help others find that balance through health and wellness, with a concentration on nutrition education.
