Special Interest in Gut Issues
I am passionate about supporting people in a compassionate and non-judgemental way, assisting them to make sustainable and practical dietary and lifestyle changes.
I also love working with people to help them develop a positive relationship with food and their body, helping them to move away from the ‘diet-culture’ that is so prominent today.
I grew up in the town of Albury/Wodonga, which is right of the border of New South Wales and Victoria. I had an active and healthy upbringing, growing up in a health-conscious household, which lead to my interest in studying nutrition. After completing high school, I moved to Melbourne where I studied a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics at Monash University for four years to become an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD).
Before moving to Melbourne, I was diagnosed with glandular fever after returning from an overseas holiday to Bali. Months passed and I never fully recovered, with constant fatigue, digestive issues, and mental health issues worsening. This lead me to search for more answers. I saw many, many different health practitioners with little success; most of them put it down to ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ and told me there was not a lot they could do to help. I finally found a supportive practitioner, who took a holistic approach focusing on my gut health, and I began to see improvements. This experience lead me to finding my area of passion with dietetics, being all things gut related. I aim to be a supportive and caring practitioner for each of my clients, offering my knowledge and experience to guide them through their individual journeys, whatever that may be. In addition to my university degree, I have also completed training in ‘Motivational Interviewing’ and completed the official FODMAP training through Monash University, who founded the low FODMAPs diet for IBS.
