“My grandparents lived in our house for most of my childhood. One with type 2 diabetes and one with heart disease, I became passionate about giving them the right nutrition and dietary advice. I'm now an Accredited Practicing Dietitian with a soft spot for the wider aged care community and have been working in clinical practice since 2009 (including community care, private practice and hospital wards). My mission is to provide a service for the independent elderly living in our very own neighbourhoods in order to give them the best nutrition support and quality of life possible.”
