Hi, I’m your Clinical Nutritionist, and I have lymphoedema and lipoedema.
I live in Sydney, Australia. Mum to my three gorgeous sons, wife to my childhood sweetheart, and important person to Shelby the very anxious miniature Aussie bulldog. I’ve lived in two other countries (Finland and the UAE) and developed a fascination and excitement for food and food culture because of those experiences!
When I first noticed something was wrong with my legs, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I should eat. I absolutely knew that food would play a big part in how my legs showed up for me, but the advice was contradictory and confusing – I remember so many days getting my plate out, putting it on the bench, and being so unsure about what to put on it that I would either eat nothing … or everything. Even though I felt so confused by ALL THE DIETS I just went ahead and tried them all even if they didn’t make sense because I was DESPERATE. I became an expert in all the diets that did not work for lymphoedema and lipoedema.
I studied Nutritional Medicine and practice as a Clinical Nutritionist. I work almost exclusively with women who have lymphoedema and lipoedema. One of the things I love most about my profession is having the education, skills and research to have CERTAINTY around what to put on my plate. I adore that I this is no longer such agony for me!
I get really excited about reimagining nutrition protocols for lymphoedema and lipoedema. I bring delicious food, science, lifestyle modifications, and practical tools to the forefront of helping my patients so that the guesswork around food choices is eliminated.
I create personalised, empowering, practical, and effective treatment plans for women with lymphoedema and lipoedema.
Your treatment plan is designed so that you don’t need to keep coming back to see me week after week. This saves you time and money, getting you off the financial treadmill so you can just get on with your beautiful life. I like to see people again after 6 months of applying a treatment plan for a Reassessment Review to see how your body has enjoyed the benefits of changing the way you eat.
You don’t even need to be local to see me! I meet with my patients online – via teleconference with a computer or a phone – and I’ve been doing this for years. If you struggle with mobility, have anxiety about going out, or live a long way from me, I can help you start your journey towards feeling a lot better.
