I’m not your typical nutritionist…

I light up helping people gain a deeper appreciation for food and health in the context of our social, mental, cultural, environmental and emotional wellbeing, and seeing food beyond nutrients.

Trying to navigate the complex world of nutrition science isn’t always easy. However, purely myth-busting nutrition and health misinformation only gets us so far. Instead, it can create a literal or figurative “war” with ourselves, and each other, driving us away from the importance of food as a means of connection, culture, gratitude, and a reflection of our personal values.

Lucky for you, I have a knack for interpreting, translating, and explaining complex public health and nutrition science research and issues in a way you can meaningfully understand.

I am the ‘visionary’ nutritionist you can count on for:

Article writing for digital and print media

Interviews for radio, podcast, television, print and digital media

Health communication strategy development

Public speaking, workshop, and event facilitation

Design, implementation and evaluation of evidence-based nutrition and public health programs

Digital, physical, environmentally sustainable, and culturally rich food environments

Food psychology, sociology, health-related behaviour change and the Non-Diet Approach

Why work with me?

I am a real people-person at heart. I genuinely love getting to know, and work with people from all walks of life. You become part of my story, and I become part of yours. How special is that?

I love ‘big picture’ thinking, but I also love to deep-dive and explore the nitty-gritty details.

I’m super fun (and love a good pun), but I also know when it’s time to get serious and put in the hard yards.

Even after spending six years studying at university (so far), I am 110% committed to frequently “topping up” and refreshing my evidence-based knowledge and skills, so you are always in the best hands.
