Meet Dana, Ortho Bionomist at Gunnison Valley Health

Dana VanMarter is Gunnison Valley Health’s Practitioner of Ortho-Bionomy in the Integrative Therapies Department. She completed the two year certification program in 2017. Last winter, Dana contracted with GVH in the Integrative Therapies Department, and came onboard as a full-time employee in late June.

Dana came to the Gunnison Valley in 1986 as a student/athlete at WSU. She competed as a member of the Mountaineers’ Volleyball team, and graduated in 1990 with a BA in Business Marketing. Like many students, the mountains carved themselves into her soul, and she made her permanent home with her husband and kids in Crested Butte. In her free time she enjoys the great outdoors as much as possible, mostly on the backs of her horses in the surrounding Wilderness Areas.

Dana has worked in the valley in an assortment of managerial positions, and comes to GVH from her recent position as Soft Goods Supervisor at Flatiron Sports. Dana is happy to have the opportunity to pursue her newest passion, a bodywork called Ortho-Bionomy.
