I am very passionate in food, nutrition and health. Partly because I love eating (love my bread!) and also because I was raised in a family who always pay close attention to nutrition and health. I believe that foods nourish, nurture, and heal.
I also love exercise- I am a regular at my local gym for Les Mills classes- Body Pump, Body Combat, Body Step, CrX- you name it! On the weekend- I shop at local farmers market (quite lucky to live close to a big farmers market) and enjoy spending my day out in the sun. Going for a picnic (or brunch- who doesn’t love brunch?!), bush walking or even just lying down on the grass and reading at a park.
I did my undergraduate degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from The University of Newcastle in 2009. I continued my journey and did Diploma of Fitness and Cert IV of Remedial Massage from Australasian College of Natural Therapy, Sydney. I just finished my Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics from The University of Sydney in 2012. It was a very intense course but I enjoyed every bit of it. I think I have come a long way since I came to Sydney. 🙂
I am now an Accredited Practising Dietitian, provisionally granted by the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA).
I recently started my first job as a dietitian at a private allergy and intolerance clinic in Castle Hill. I often help clients, including babies and children, with food allergy and intolerances, but certainly not limited to.
I also practise at Mt Druitt Medical Centre, where I often help clients with chronic diseases including diabetes type II, hypertension and obesity, both on Enhanced Primary Care program (Medicare funded) and privately.
I am hoping that in the future, I can make an impact in this big big world. In a positive way, of course 🙂
Happy stomach happy mind happy soul~
