My Story

 

I am is a Registered Dietitian with a passion for childhood and family nutrition. I am a mother to my pigeon pair, Emily  and Kade,  whom I love more than anything . Being a mom and wife myself  ,I  understand the importance of feeding your family right.

I  studied my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics at the University of Kwazulu Natal (UKZN) followed by my Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics also through UKZN.

After qualifying,  I  completed my community service year  in Northern KZN  before  relocating to the United Kingdom in 2008. After working in various settings there I  discovered my special interest for  working with families. 

 

I have a passion for paediatric nutrition  and spent a large majority of my time  in the UK working in weight management of children including those underweight as well overweight. I ran healthy lifestyle workshops for families and also dealt with many fussy eating cases.

Home beckoned though and so in 2012 I moved home where I worked in the private sector  mainly in the pediatric field as well corporate sector.

In 2014 I took the risk and  decided to open my own practice . I have been fortunate to work in a wide variety of nutrition related fields. I have a passion for people and helping them wherever they are in their walk of life to achieve overall balance and wellbeing.

 

I have a special interest in all fields pertaining to infants, children and woman. I took some time off whilst my children were young but now more than ever I am dedicated to educating those around me on healthy eating for their children and families.

 

I love being a mom and want to help all the other mothers around me as it is can be a difficult time dealing with mealtimes and children.
