Nutritional Epidemiologist & Healthy Longevity Research Affiliate – Charles Perkins Centre, Faculty of Medicine & Health, University of Sydney.


A life changing event almost 20 years ago catapulted me on a new path of exploration, study and service.  The common thread has been nutrition and  health empowerment.  Empowering  clients to use the every day behaviours in eating, moving, sleeping and stress reduction  to optimise health, prevent and even reverse chronic conditions.  As Nutritional Medicine Practitioner for almost 10 years, I’ve always sought to bridge the science with the practical and common sense, focusing on strategies that deliver results and health outcomes, starting with food first. My MSc Nutritional Epidemiology and Public Health studies have deepened my understanding and given me a renewed sense of purpose to provide evidence-based  and personalised nutritional treatment  addressing the common underlying inflammatory causes of many  different chronic conditions. 

To date I have had the privilege of helping many wonderful people on their journey of health and healing.  First a personal transformation, and then with better health and vitality the ripple effect on all areas of life. 
Just imagine the world we could create!
