I am a Registered Dietitian with more than two decades of experience in the healthcare industry. Diet and nutrition; and health and wellness are important to everyone. That puts me in the privileged position to be able to offer insight and guidance to people looking to improve their lifestyle.

I can help you answer your clients questions. Allow me to create content for your brand that is backed by science, accurate and reliable. I can help you create a series of emails, blog articles, website content, short eBooks, or any other content that appeals to your audience.

Dietitian Based In Sandton


I continue to offer professional, friendly, personalised, nutrition advice to meet your nutritional requirements. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. When it comes to food, your favourite meal is unique to you. That is why your food preferences are always taken into consideration when I plan a diet for you.

My approach to dietary counselling is to provide information, gentle encouragement and support; based on an assessment of your current eating habits, preferences and requirements.

I believe that food is there to be enjoyed! It is a fundamental part of our lives, not only for survival but also for enjoyment.

About me


Like all women, I wear many hats. I am a daughter, a wife, a mother, a dietitian, a freelance writer. I juggle my work life with my family life, striving to give the best of me to everyone. Most days everything goes well, but when it goes wrong, it all goes wrong!

Professionally, I thrive on helping people just like me.
• People who are juggling all the balls, but often forget to look after themselves.
• Individuals who need a gentle push to lose weight or gain health.
• Women who need to be heard and who need a lifestyle plan that fits into their busy lives.
• A plan that takes into consideration the school run and the office routine.
• A plan that can be easily adapted to cater for the fussy eater or the husband who is wondering where his meat and potatoes are.
• A plan that is effortless, manageable and sustainable.

The past 20+ years have opened windows, giving me great insight into the struggles people face with their health and weight. Men, women and children have shared their struggles with me and made meaningful lifestyle changes to improve their health, with me at their side.

I have enjoyed great variety in my career. And new doors continue to open for me, leading me to explore new options, learn new skills, and develop new connections.
