About Me

I studied my BSc Dietetics degree at Stellenbosch University and then completed the AFMCP course through the Institute of Functional Medicine.  I’ve had my own private practice since 2002 and absolutely love what I do. The most common conditions I treat are the following: Weight loss, insulin resistance, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, IBS, PCOS, food sensitivities and sports nutrition. 

I’m married with two busy, sporty kids (Teagan and Dylan) so I totally understand my clients when they say ‘I literally have 15mins to prepare dinner in the evenings’.

I LOVE sport and have represented KZN in 4 different sports, namely gymnastics, hockey, tennis and squash (I currently play KZN squash).  Being a sportswoman (and having a husband that’s completed ironman, 10 Two Oceans and 8 Comrades) has definitely helped when it comes to advising athletes with regards to sports nutrition. 

Over the last few years I’ve written a series of Children’s Nutritional Story Books in order to help educate children about healthy eating. Together with Dee Fleuriot (a professional Actress) we have put together a ‘Healthy Eating’ school show called ‘Charlie and friends’ which educates children about healthy eating in a fun way. 

If you would like to book an appointment with me (or would like to book our school show) please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you.
