About Me

I am a specialist gastrointestinal dietitian who has over ten years of experience working with adults and children.

I value working in partnership with a number of gastroenterologists around Melbourne. My particular interest centers on the role of diet in the management of inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome. I am currently utilising the latest research to guide the treatment and management of Crohn’s disease. In addition, I have experience supporting patients undergoing faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for IBS and ulcerative colitis.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé Sara and sons Archer and Jensen. I am an avid traveler, a keen cyclist and a passionate supporter of AFL and soccer.

Dedicated. Pragmatic. Honest. Empathetic.
