As a registered dietitian, I find that the most important part of what I do each day is sorting through the huge amount of confusing nutrition information that is available to ensure that I provide up-to-date, evidence-based information to my clients that is practical and applicable to today’s world.
After graduating from UCT in 2004, I have spent the past 15 years working in various fields of nutrition. I consult with clients both on a one-to-one basis and within the wellness programmes at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA) helping them with a wide range of clinical conditions. As part of the practice I also see many athletes from different sporting disciplines.
I have presented numerous weight loss and sports nutrition workshops and talks to the public and corporate companies. Also, I lecture students in the Department of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine (ESSM) and the physiotherapy department at UCT. I have been involved in the nutritional analysis of recipes for various companies and I have contributed to many articles in the media. Previously I have been involved in the conceptualisation of online wellness programmes for the health insurance and fitness club industries.
