About Everest Health


Here at Everest Health we combine our research in longevity with our work as a Primary Care Providers and Longevity and Healthspan Specialists. We have already been having excellent success with our clients in helping them to feel and become measurably younger, avoid disease and function at a higher level. This is an excellent option for the health-conscious and elite to unlock the next level of performance and recovery. We want to make this an opportunity to everyone. There is no client who comes to us who does not qualify or a candidate for longevity and health span services- it just depends on which treatments are appropriate. Together, we will discuss your goals, assess your current health state to get a baseline for effectiveness as well as safety for choice of treatments, and we will make a custom plan in shared partnership. With new and innovative research being developed all the time, we are always willing to work with clients, consider new options, and discuss the possibility for inclusion in their care. There is no quackery at Everest, only evidence. This makes us openminded to new ideas, since the proof speaks for itself.

Our mission is to measurably optimize the wellbeing of our clients so we can all live better, longer, together.

What sets Everest Health apart?


Our background is in research.

This makes us particularly capable of investigating new options as well as reassessing old ones. We are not satisfied with what is “known” but are continuously examining the evidence. Vitamins, herbs, supplements, and other alternative therapies are considered with the same standard and openness as mainstream medicine. Knowledge is to be shared, and it is a joy when clients show investment in their own health by asking questions, making suggestions, and sharing research with us.

Our heart is with our clients.

We sincerely care about people, and we enjoy being in the service of others. Our satisfaction comes from helping people become measurably younger, healthier, happier, and seeing them obtain the proof that they have hope for the future. We all have great value to one another, and here at Everest Health, we believe that society is served by remaining in it: becoming better, wiser, kinder people as we gain years. The mission that motivates us is to advocate for our clients and support them to make meaningful improvents to their wellbeing so that we can all live better, longer, together.

CEO, Medical Director, Provider

Danielle has been focused on giving back to the community by working in the medical field since her youth. Always drawn to the aged, she learned early in life the challenges the elderly and their families face and was motivated to find a way to meaningfully improve the lives of those around her. Throughout her healthcare career, she has worked with various adult populations, learning the unique needs of different ages, cultures, and conditions. One thing that unites us all is the desire and the right to be healthy, happy, and to live. Danielle genuinely cares for her clients and wants them to succeed. Frustrated with the current paradigm of our healthcare system, she was driven to find options to extend her clients’ healthspan measurably and safely, the years free from disease with health that is optimized for each individual.

Danielle became a Fellow of Geriatric Medical Research with the Methuselah Foundation in 2016, researching the best evidence-based methods to extend life, prevent disease, optimize health, and measure biological age and function. She has continued to achieve academically and secularly and became the Foundation’s Medical Director in 2020. Later that year, she founded Everest Health Partners and became its CEO and Medical Director. Danielle holds a master’s degree of nursing from George Mason University and is a Board Certified Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, serving as a Strategic Clinical Advisor for companies in the longevity space, including the Longevity Prize.

She is a passionate learner, and her endless enthusiasm means she is constantly growing in her chosen field, as well as her innumerable hobbies.
