About Janne (Yenna)
Health is Not a Size
Golden Heart Health’s approach focuses on building on existing habits to transition to a healthier lifestyle.
Weight loss is often a byproduct of the transaction, but I prefer to focus on the successful implementation of new skills for lifelong health maintenance.
As an endurance athlete and outdoor enthusiast I am specializing in Sports Nutrition and welcome both individual Athletes and requests for education for groups.
Sports Nutrition consults and group educations can be found on my “Services & Availability” page along with a comprehensive list of Golden Heart Health's services.
I came to Alaska 25+ years ago, and have lived in Fairbanks since 1997.
My interest in diet and health is lifelong, but professionally I began in 2009 by conducting nutrition research with the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
I published my 2014 Masters research regarding physical activity, diet, and health in Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4619959/ .
Since, I have helped clients with nutrition questions and needs through private practice consultations, group education, and community volunteer work.
In 2019 I received State licence as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist; this has expanded my network and resources, and added the ability to do insurance billing for some consults- “Contact Golden Heart Health” for details.
I am available through Golden Heart Health for Tele-health and for group educations and personal consults. A full description of available services can be found on my Services & Availability page.
