I initially completed a Bachelor of Science at Adelaide University in 2014 majoring in Genetics and Physiology. I really the health science aspects of this degree and went on to do my Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics at Flinders University. I was fortunate enough to get a New Graduate position as a clinical Dietitian at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and from there I found a passion and strong interest in nutrition for gastrointestinal disease and surgery so I now specialize in this area. Along the way I have started my own private practice and also joined an Oncology and Haematology practice.
