Finding my way
Before too long I realised my true calling was in helping others, talking about food and nutrition, and studying science. I returned to university, and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition, along with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion at Curtin University in 2015.
Throughout my studies I embraced all the knowledge and learning opportunities my degrees offered, and I gained an in depth understanding of human anatomy and physiology, the sociology of eating, food chemistry, and our nutrient needs across the lifespan. As much as I enjoyed the theory, I couldn’t shake the feeling that there was a mismatch between my own relaxed approach to eating, and the mountain of food rules that seemed to be so entrenched in the nutrition profession.
My move into private practice
Wanting to help others reduce their confusion around food and eating, I started my private practice in 2016, with a goal to provide practical and well-rounded advice to men and women seeking to improve their health without depriving themselves of good food and a balanced lifestyle.
In 2018 I followed my own intuition, and shifted my practice to focus on the area of health that resonates the most with me: helping women develop a positive relationship with food and their bodies.
I love the freedom that comes from my relaxed approach to eating, and I choose to eat the foods which bring me the most happiness and satisfaction. You too can learn to embrace all foods while feeling great and supporting your health, and through our work together I will teach you how to do this.
How I can help you
My special interest in supporting women struggling with reproductive issues such as PCOS, missing and/or irregular periods, and infertility led me to pursue my Master’s degree in Women’s Health Medicine. Through our work together, I will provide you with the support, guidance, skills and knowledge to begin your journey in building the confidence to nourish your body with the foods that are right for you as an individual. Together, we will heal your health issues with gentle self-care, minus the stress of dieting and restriction.
I look forward to working together so that you too can embrace the freedom that comes from rejecting restrictive eating behaviours, hard to follow food rules, and unrealistic body standards. All women deserve to feel at peace with their body and live a nourished and fulfilled life, and it would be my pleasure to help you achieve just that.
