Dietitian

I grew up in Brisbane and studied my undergraduate degree in Public Health majoring in Nutrition at the Queensland University of Technology followed shortly after by my Masters of Dietetics at the University of Queensland. I have always been attracted to living away from the city and moved to North QLD straight after Uni to work in Innisfail and Cairns.  I have also lived and worked on a sheep and cattle station out of Quilpie as a governess which was a lot of fun. I love the beach and met my partner and father to our son when I was living and working in Armidale. I moved down shortly after during COVID and absolutely love the lifestyle on the Coffs Coast.

Then:

  1. What do you love most about your job/industry?

I absolutely love helping people to interpret and understand the misinformation that’s out there in our food and nutrition industry and help them achieve realistic, sustainable changes that will impact their lives in a positive way. I recognise that food is more than calories and ‘nutrition’ and that food is enjoyed in so many ways and cultures all over the world. It can be something that brings families and friends together, bring you satisfaction and help you to feel your best every day.

  1. Areas of interest?

My favourite clients to work with are those who struggle with emotional eating or disordered eating over the whole spectrum from overeating to undereating, gut health and managing chronic disease through improving your health from a wholistic perspective.

  1. Your top tip

Eat simple, real, wholefoods and teach your children how to cook and grow food in their gardens.

  1. People would be surprised if they knew…

I have ridden a goat a the Quilpie races.
