Your gut health and weight loss dietitian. Owner & Founder.
I have a keen interest in women’s health and weight loss. Being a mum of two children, I recognise the importance of taking care of your health in order to give the best of yourself to your family and loved ones.
I make it my mission to cut through the nonsense on the internet to give you the most effective strategies to lose weight with zero overwhelm.
And for my food intolerance & IBS sufferers, my aim is to empower you with the skills and tools to eliminate bloating, gut pain and unpredictable poops (without quitting eating out or eating bleugh food). I continue to stay up to date with the latest research and evidence within this area, and I help facilitate various online support groups for people both in Australia and across the world.
In my spare time, I can be found enjoying time with family. Coming from an Italian background I love eating and cooking great Italian food – yes, I cannot not live without bread, cheese, or pasta!

Your women’s health and chronic disease dietitian.
I am a passionate Dietitian who is on a mission to help people improve their relationship with food and movement by developing balanced and sustainable lifestyle habits.
I have over 12 years experience in private practice across both the UK and Australia and enjoy helping everyday people navigate the scientific evidence around the key pillars of health to nourish their bodies and feel their best on a daily basis. I have worked with individual’s across a variety of issues including gut health, IBS, weight management, and specific diets (vegan, plant-based etc.). However, my special interests lie in women’s health, including pre and post-natal nutrition, and managing the transition through peri-menopause and menopause.
In addition to being an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I am also an Exercise Scientist and love supporting active adults (‘the everyday athlete’) to adequately fuel for optimal daily performance.
In my spare time you’ll find me growing vegetables, shopping at a Farmer’s market, chasing the sun at the beach, enjoying a restaurant, exploring nature or cooking a feast for friends.
Your paediatric dietitian.
I undertook my Paediatric nutrition training at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and have had over 10 years experience providing nutrition support to children of all ages. My main focus now is supporting families with infants and younger children.
In addition to being an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I am also a SOS-trained feeding therapist (having completed advanced training), and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have also undertaken additional training in the Ellyn Satter Division of Responsibility Approach to Feeding, Food Allergy and Intolerances, and I also have a Diploma of Breastfeeding Management.
As a mother of three, I understand the unique challenges of feeding a growing family and the stresses that can bring. I not only appreciate the importance of nutrition in the early years but also the challenges that may arise throughout a child’s feeding journey, from weaning to fussy eating and beyond. I am passionate about children’s nutrition, reducing mealtime stress for families and making eating a positive experience.
When not working, I enjoy keeping fit by walking my Groodle. I also love to spend time at my sewing machine creating clothes and accessories for my family and friends.
