About Us / Sierra Mountain Wellness History: Sierra Mountain Wellness, owned and operated by Dana Dose, RDN, LD, is your evidence-based resource for all things nutrition, fitness, and wellness related in the Tahoe and web-based communities. Dana supports eating whole, real foods as close to their natural form as possible and foods that come from farms as close to the consumer as possible.
She became a dietitian because she had her own health and nutrition struggles as an adolescent, and through working with a dietitian, discovering her own personal needs, she fell in love with the field and wanted to share this passion with others. After four years of being a RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) and gaining experience in the non-profit education and then primary care clinic fields, she opened up her own business and is now practicing full time as Sierra Mountain Wellness.
Dana practices integrative and functional nutrition, meaning she digs deeper to determine personalized nutritional needs and deficiencies to come up with solutions that will improve overall wellbeing, not just one symptom. For clients who struggle with making sustainable behavior change, Dana uses a coaching approach and seeks to uncover your strengths to help you gain the confidence necessary to make healthy recommendations become lifelong habits. She believes food should be the first answer when dealing with nutritional deficiencies, and only recommends supplements when necessary.
Dana supports her local farmer's markets and community food-related organizations, and she believes Agrilicious is a key in bringing all local food communities together on a national level to make the most impactful change.
