BSc (Human Nutrition)
Master of Dietetics
New Zealand Registered Dietitian
I remember when I received the news that I had Coeliac Disease at the age of eleven, and the variety of emotions that surrounded the diagnosis. Since then, it has been my dream to help other people navigate the often overwhelming array of nutritional messages, to find a way of eating that meets their own personal needs and helps them to be the healthiest they can be.
I have worked with a wide range of different conditions in general outpatient clinics. Throughout my journey I have come to love helping people with food intolerances and gastrointestinal problems, as well as helping people make sense of their medical conditions from a nutritional perspective.
I believe that good nutrition is not just about physical health - it is important to consider the emotional, social and spiritual components as well!
My special interests include:
- Coeliac Disease
- Irritable bowel syndrome/FODMAPs
- Food chemical intolerances
- Management of unintentional weight loss
- Weight management
- General healthy eating e.g. energy, iron deficiency
