Also known as mum, dietitian, nutritionist & food nerd
With a Masters in Nutrition & Dietetics, I am a clinical practising member of Dietitians Australia + Accredited Practising Dietitian & Nutritionist. I have undertaken postgrad specialty training in fertility and prenatal nutrition + FODMAPs for IBS and endometriosis through ELN Alliance and Monash University.
