Integrated Health

Dyanna Potter, RD

Arizona State University



I knew I wanted to be a doctor when I was four years old because I thought doctors knew everything,  and I wanted to know everything. Now that I am a doctor, my favorite part is being able to teach people about health.

My patients can expect to have my full attention. They are the only thing I think about when I’m with them. The goal of healthcare is to give our patients the tools to make better decisions for themselves. People know how to make good decisions; they just don’t always know what their options are.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with kids and being outdoors. Hiking is the best thing to do here in Arizona.

Food has always been a major part of my life as an athlete. I am also passionate about gardening, so becoming a registered dietitian fit right in. I love being at Mountain Park because it’s all about the community.

There are a lot of contributing factors to a person’s overall health, like behavioral health and nutrition. With health being so multifaced, baby steps add up to big changes. I always try to meet my patients where they are at. They can expect me to be attentive and respectful of their process and timing.

If I weren’t in healthcare, I’d be a dog walker.
