Nutrition Science.
Lifestyle. habits.

are you looking for a personalised approach to nutrition?

Let me help you. I’m a registered dietitian living in Cape Town, South Africa. I assist private and corporate clients in understanding the basic, science-based principles of nutrition and, more importantly, how to implement it into your everyday life to help you reach your health goals.  The approach is always holistic and tailored to life stage, preferences, medical history, environment and lifestyle. Before becoming a dietitian, I also spent a decade in the media, so I enjoy creating and sharing educational content with my clients. Contact me to find out how I can help you.
