    The professional stuff you need to know

    I'm registered as an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) with the Dietitians Association of Australia, and hold a Master of Dietetic Studies, Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition), and a Diploma of Languages (German) from the University of Queensland. I make sure to regularly attend professional development events to stay up-to-date on the latest in nutrition and therapy skills. 


    You can trust that I practise evidence-based nutrition therapy, tailoring scientifically rigorous research findings to meet the individual needs of each of my clients. As a member of the registry of Australian Independent Dietitian-Nutritionists (AIDNs),  I ensure I have not received money (including employment) or gifts from food, supplement, surgery, agricultural, or weight-loss industries.

    The personal stuff

    I know what it's like to struggle with eating and body image – I have since I was quite young, and would not have been able to recover if it weren't for the caring and evidence-based support I received from professional APDs and psychologists. I also know what it's like to struggle with mental illness; I'm proud to be open about this and to advocate on behalf of my clients who also struggle with mental health concerns. 

    I want you to know that when you come to see me, I see you as a fellow human being with human struggles. I won't give you a cut-and-paste meal plan, or reduce you to the number on the scale. I am here to hear you, to support you, and to advocate for you as best I can.

    In my spare time, you can find me hula-hooping, fire-spinning, tending to my veggie garden, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or generally nerding out.
