With a determined focus on helping people maintain a positive relationship with food and in turn great health I am a weight inclusive, Health at Every Size (HAES®) aligned dietitian and nutritionist.
In 2019 I graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics from Griffith University on the Gold Coast becoming an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and Qualified Nutritionist. The following year I founded Essence of Nutrition (EON) with the aim to provide practical, economical and accessible nutrition services to the Gold Coast Community and nationally online, providing both in home and online Telehealth services.
My passions include supporting those with disordered eating, mental health, gastroenterology and how nutrition plays a vital role in both conditions of the mind and the gut.
Strengthening ones relationship to the food they eat is a key pillar to improved nutrition. Our current culture and change in food systems has distorted our understanding and love for food and ourselves. Scales like the BMI have left us feeling shame and guilt around our body size and the wellness industry is affecting our understanding of 'being healthy'. By taking it back to basics and re-aligning trust with our body I hope to see improved nutrition, mental health and quality of life.
