I am a Registered private practicing Clinical Dietitian and Exercise Specialist. I obtained my Bachelor of Dietetics degree from the University of Pretoria (2013) and I completed my Diploma in Exercise Science at the Health and Fitness Professionals Academy (2014).

I apply sound medical and scientifically evidence-based practice, which means I consult up to date, peer reviewed journals and textbooks and I regularly attend workshops to make sure I provide sound, safe and effective nutrition therapy.
My passion is living a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating and staying active and helping and supporting others to be able to do the same. By taking care of yourself, exercising regularly, being active and making smart food choices, you will look and feel better every day.

I specialize in optimizing sport performance for individuals and athletes; weight management; improving health by eating healthily and preventing and managing, non-communicable diseases of lifestyle (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia etc); general health, wellness and well-being; medical and metabolic conditions; women’s health related conditions; managing nutrition through the life cycle; food allergies and intolerances; digestive problems and gastrointestinal diseases; eating disorders; and managing low energy & high stress levels etc.
