About me

I’m a specialist oncology, rehabilitation & gastrointestinal dietitian with many years of experience in dietetics, nutritional treatment and preventative nutritional counselling. I have a special interest and strong background in providing support for people struggling with gastrointestinal side effects from cancer treatments, as well as over 20 years of experience with chronic gastroenterological conditions such as  bowel surgery, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease and food allergy/intolerance. I work in all areas of nutritional rehabilitation and prehabilitation to optimise recovery and fitness. I am also trained to use personalised nutrition (coupled with Nutrigenomics/nutrigenetics) to provide individual DNA based assessments. I am Monash University trained in the use of the Low FODMAP Diet and have experience with SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) dietary support.

What services do I provide?

- I provide telehealth services nationwide and internationally

- Nutritional assessment and analysis

- Letters and recommendations to other health care professionals (with your consent)

- Nutrigenomics and blood tests recommendations

- Small bowel intestinal overgrowth assessment and support

- Meal advise and recipe ideas

How can nutritional treatment help?

From improving recovery, reducing symptoms, improving your long term health and wellbeing to being able to cope better with treatments (operations/chemotherapy/radiotherapy/hormone treatment) there are many ways optimising nutrition can support you.
