Registered Holistic Clinical Nutritionist
After obtaining my BSc in Sociology and Anthropology in the States, I moved to Napier, New Zealand in 2009 and started my own fitness business teaching zumba, yoga and pilates. I was then inspired to pursue my passion for health and fitness even further, and studied Anatomy, Physiology and Nutritional Science at the Naturopathic College of New Zealand for two and a half years. I was amazed at the insights I gained in the science of the human body, and astonished at how well it works for us when we give it the right ‘recipe’ tailored to the individual!
I have always been active in health and fitness. I played sports from the time I was little, joined the varsity track team in high school and college and have always been a “gym rat”. My passion for nutritious food started when I was very young, having been raised by a very health conscious father. I subscribed to, and read every health magazine I could get my hands on, as well as reading up on nutrition through many popular books. It wasn’t until I actually started my career in fitness that I had that “aha” moment when I realised that food, and how it impacts the body, have truly been my passion throughout my life!
As a result of all my study alongside my huge passion for health and wellness, I am determined to support and motivate individuals to make dietary and lifestyle changes, enabling them to live an improved quality of life, and to work towards their personal goals. I believe discovering the right foods for the individual has the power to transform lives. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your ‘health journey’ to live the life you deserve! I am able to accommodate home visits for those not able to attend one of my clinics, so why not get in touch if this is you!
