A little about me

As an experienced Accredited Practising Dietitian, I strongly believe in being empathetic, non-judgmental and compassionate towards every person I meet.

My special interests involve counselling in Sports/Exercise Nutrition, Plant-Based Diets and Digestive Health, particularly irritable bowel syndrome. I am currently working as a Nutrition Coach in the fitness industry and doing telehealth dietetic consultations. I have also provided nutrition services for the Melbourne Football Club (AFLW) and Calder Cannons Football Club (U18) during the 2020-2021 season. On request, I also do nutrition seminars/presentations in person and online in various sports clubs, gyms, and workplaces.

My previous experience in a hospital setting include acute, subacute and community-based environments dealing with a wide range of individuals in areas such as; Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Gastroenterology (irregular bowel habits, Coeliac Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Renal Disease (Chronic Kidney Disease), Oncology (Malnutrition), Osteoporosis, Arthritis and Disordered Eating. 

My aim is to give you nutritional advice that is always evidence-based, practical, sustainable and tailored to your lifestyle and goals.

Dietitian or Nutritionist?

In Australia there is a distinction made between dietitians and nutritionists.

A nutritionist may be a tertiary qualified nutrition professional that has the expertise to provide a range of evidence based nutrition services related to nutrition, public health nutrition, policy and research, and community health. It’s important to note that the term ‘nutritionist’ is not regulated. Therefore, this title may be used by dietitians, nutrition scientists and nutrition graduates – and also those with very limited qualifications in nutrition.

Dietitians are also qualified to provide this range of evidence based nutrition services, but in addition, dietitians have the expertise to provide individual dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy, group dietary therapy and food service management. A dietitian has undertaken a course of study that included substantial theory and supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.
