I have a true passion for healthy food, nutrition therapy and health education. My mission is to share this passion for healthy eating and to enhance the health and well-being of individuals and organisations through effective, integrative, evidence-based and realistic approaches to achieving optimum nutrition.

I’m about helping people to feel better xx

If you want to know more about me – read on.


I have twenty-five years’ experience as a Dietitian/Nutritionist. Currently, I work exclusively as a private consultant with AM Dietetics.

I’ve had quite a journey to get here.

My Dietetic career has been International; in both Australia and the United Kingdom.

After graduating from the Queensland University of Technology in June 1994, I worked in a wide and varied range of positions throughout Queensland. These positions included Hospital/clinical roles in both Brisbane and in Rural Areas, work in Private Practice, Teaching (TAFE), Health Promotion and Workplace Health, (the Heart Foundation). I also worked for a year, in 2014 as a clinical trainer and Lecturer with Griffith University and Mater Health Services, Brisbane.
These years gave me the opportunity to build my specialist skills in so many different areas of Dietetics!

In 1999, I was successful in obtaining a position as Senior Community Dietitian in the United Kingdom and made the move, not to London which seems the traditional route for Aussie Dietitians, but to the North West of England to the beautiful Wirral peninsula, just a “Ferry ride across the Mersey” to Liverpool. I have spent over 13 years here, moving on to other roles – as Chief/Advanced practitioner in Diabetes at Aintree Hospital/Walton Diabetes Centre- Liverpool and then as a University Lecturer where I was Programme Leader MSc Diabetes Management, Programme Leader in Human Nutrition and Senior Lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Chester.

During my time in the United Kingdom, I have also been a programme development group member for the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) development of diabetes guidelines and a British Dietetic Association Media Spokesperson.

I now work solely as a freelance/private consultant Dietitian with AM Dietetics.

I have a love for helping people find their best way to healthy eating, for Dietetic Practice and for Nutrition Communications in the form of print, social media and presenting.

I have appeared in articles in Weight Watcher’s Magazine, The Daily Mail Newspaper and on BBC Breakfast Radio. I have written for health blogs and magazines, such as Dental Hygiene and Therapy Magazine (UK). I was also invited to Lecture at King’s College/University London 2012, and more recently for the British Dietetic Association (2016, 2017), where I spoke on Dietitians and Social Media and have worked on health projects with Nestle, Pfizer and Merck Sanofi. I was awarded a place on the British Dietetic Association’s Roll of Honour in 2018.
