Accredited Practicing Dietitian – Accredited Nutritionist

I always had an interest in following a healthy diet and exercising but it was in my 30’s that I decided to pursue a career in Dietetics. It took 10 years with raising a family and fitting my studies in and around this important part of my life, but the end result was worth it!

I find balancing a busy family life and career can be challenging and my passion is in helping people embrace healthy eating principles into their everyday lives so that it is one less challenge to face. My special interests are in the area of weight loss, with a focus on support for those who have had Bariatric surgery and in food intolerances.

Credentials:  Accredited Practicing Dietitian, Accredited Nutritionist, Member of Dietitian Association of Australia, Certificate in Medical Nutritional Therapy for Bariatric Surgery; Certificate in Psychodietetics, Active member of the Bariatric Working Group (WA); Professional member of the Coeliac Society WA, Diabetes Association WA and Gut Foundation, Member of interest groups for: allergy and intolerance and private practice dietitians.

My passion for nourishing, home-cooked meals using local produce began as a young child when my parents would take my two sisters and me on long drives in the country sourcing organic fruit, vegetables, eggs, and cheeses.  My Mum is a wonderful cook, and I would sit at the kitchen bench watching her prepare our meals, taking it all in and chatting about the ingredients she was using.  I have since been blessed with children of my own, and I love cooking for my family.  In my home kitchen, listening to music, experimenting with new recipes is my happy place…

I have been working as a dietitian in private practice since 1999 and over the years my idea of what clients need from me has changed dramatically.  People don’t need prescriptive diets (even if they think they do!).  Research shows that rigid diets only make people bigger and unhappier. Instead, I believe people need the knowledge and tools to make healthier choices based on their lifestyle and palate.  They need to relearn how to eat intuitively, to enjoy a wide variety of foods without guilt or shame.  I enjoy talking to clients about what it is to eat mindfully, believing that mindless eating dramatically contributes to overeating.  I strive to give my clients the confidence to move towards a plant-based diet, as I think this is the future for both human health and the health of the planet.

My speciality areas include weight loss surgery, vegetarian/veganism, weight loss, IBS, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular health.   In my own time, I love to cook, read, go to the beach with my family, walk my dog and go on camping trips.

Credentials/Memberships: Bachelor of Science (Nutrition & Food Science), Graduate Diploma in Dietetics, Accredited Practising Dietitian, Certificate in Medical Nutrition Therapy in Bariatric Surgery, Member of Bariatric Dietitians Working Party of WA, Member of Dietitians Association of Australia.

Accredited Practicing Dietitian – Accredited Nutritionist, Credentialled Diabetes Educator

I believe everyone can benefit from healthier eating habits, though I question the need to lose weight or look a certain way. I prefer to use biochemistry and eating behaviours to monitor health rather than weight or size.
As I mature while working in the health industry I’ve noticed myself placing more value in a healthy body image rather than a ‘healthy weight’. Having recently become a Mum, this opinion has only strengthened; I’m committed to raising a daughter who can question the damaging (and usually unintentional) messages from friends, family, and media around unrealistic beauty standards.

About me: I moved to Mandurah 5 years ago so I didn’t have to keep catching the early train to work! I love the relaxed vibe of the community and appreciate all the space that you can’t get in Perth. My kelpie Rabbit demands two walks a day otherwise he threatens my garden with holes the size of him.
