an Accredited Practicing Dietitian, nutritionist, and Credentialed Eating Disorder Dietitian.
I love food but hate that shame and guilt is often associated with one of life’s most pleasurable experiences. My passion is to help people grow in their nutrition knowledge and use this knowledge to benefit their health whilst enjoying food – guilt free!
I have worked in an acute hospital in Canberra working with people undergoing cancer treatment – including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and stem cell transplant. I also worked across the hospital in areas such as neurology, respiratory, and cardiovascular health. I then became a senior surgical dietitian, specialising in gastrointestinal surgery and neurosurgery.
I now have the pleasure of working in an online clinic which gives me the opportunity to work more closely with clients. I love seeing the progress of my clients as they reach their goals. I practice in a non-diet, weight inclusive lens and believe that you are the expert in your life. My goal is to create a collaborative experience that empowers you to feel confident in yourself.

Nutrition information is everywhere. But how much of it is true?
Nutrition misinformation is the spreading of false information relating to nutrition, food, and health. Unfortunately we are bombarded with nutrition misinformation daily. From food companies using misleading terms to sell their product to celebrities and influencers creating fear around food. It is no surprise many of us feel confused when it comes to food and a healthy diet.
The spread of nutrition misinformation has an impact on us all. It often creates fear around foods that are perfectly safe and healthy. For example the idea that soy is bad for you, food preservatives are dangerous, or you should only eat half a banana.
Misinformation can lead to dieting behaviours such as calorie counting or continuously starting fad diets that always promise results. This can lead to serious health consequences such as eating disorders, poor body image, and increased risk of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease.
This is why my goal is to build your knowledge around nutrition. Let’s take away the fear and shame that surrounds food and come back to using food to nourish our body, create connection with friends and family, and make memories. Check out my blog post on why food is more than fuel.
