Daryen grew up in Oregon in a very active and health-focused family. Though health was the goal, fad diets and exercise routines showed up frequently in her household as attempts to "stay healthy." This created a very complicated view of fitness and health for her and over the years her interest in nutrition has grown because of it.
Joining Mint helped Daryen finally find a fitness philosophy that she believed in - functional movement designed to help you live your best life. However, something was missing: Nutrition.
After years of reading and researching, Daryen decided to pursue a formal education in nutrition in order to help herself and others take control of their health and understand the impact food has on our bodies.

Daryen is passionate about bringing people together, inspiring people to be the best they can be, being a positive force in people's lives, and brightening their day.
“I believe that attitude is everything - any situation can be changed by one's mindset. Even on the hardest days we are responsible for our own actions, reactions, and attitude; bringing positivity to even the toughest things is how we become the best version of ourselves.”
