About Our Health Coaches
How did I get here to LOVE Nutrition? Well, it was a bit of a personal journey. In December of 1999 as a young 18 year old woman, my fate would find me getting into a critical accident on the top of Mauna Kea in my beautiful home on the Big Island of Hawaii, USA.
With multiple surgeries to fix broken bones, re-inflate punctured lungs and the subsequent removal of my left kidney and spleen, it set my life (and perspective on health), on a path that I am truly blessed to have. It was in the hospital that I learned the true value of healing whole foods.
I was lucky enough to have my incredible family running out every single day on a mission to the local organic food store to bring me back nourishing foods to help my body heal. This alone allowed me to get out of the hospital in about 2 and a half weeks as opposed to the 8 weeks they originally forecast with the extent of my injuries.
My doctors were left dumbfounded as my results defied standard medical procedure. It was after this point that I absolutely knew from every cell in my body that I had to change my undergraduate degree to study Nutrition.
I am blessed to know this life and know the value of it, and it is my purpose to pay the gift of health forward, educating and providing the means for people to heal themselves through food and conscious living. I’d love to inspire and help you on your journey to feeling amazing!
My journey to becoming a Clinical Nutritionist started in France when I worked as a nanny for two boys. One of the boys was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, which fascinated and intrigued me to dive deep into the effects of nutrition on overall health. I started teaching the family how to cook healthy meals and substitute sugar in recipes.
I found this experience so rewarding, and I could see first-hand how much food influenced his behaviour. This was a crucial and life-changing moment or me. When I returned home to Australia, I enrolled to study a Bachelor of Nutritional Medicine and Dietetics, and I have never looked back.
I’ve been practising for over two years and feel grateful to call this a job. To be able to help and support clients that are so passionate about enhancing their health. I often look back fondly on my time in France and how grateful for the way caring for those two young boys changed the course of my life.
I love to encourage optimal health for the individual, and I do this by using a holistic approach. I look at the whole picture, which includes factors such as lifestyle, food and supplementation. I’m here to educate and coach you. I’m your biggest cheerleader so that you become the best version of yourself.
