I joined Shelly Meltzer & Associates in 2017, after running my own private practice based in Sea Point for many years. My current focus is a combination of weight management, clinical conditions and working with athletes from various disciplines to develop nutrition strategies that meet their training and performance goals. Having completed a number of self-sufficient, multistage (Marathon des Sables, Jungle Marathon, Augrabies Extreme Marathon, Gobi Desert March) and ultra-distance endurance events (Grand Union Canal race, Outeniqua Quest 100km, Sky Run 100km), I am acutely aware of the important role that nutrition plays in supporting the quality of training, recovery and adaption to exercise.
Recently, I received my PhD through the UCT division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, with my thesis focussing on weight loss (12 week exercise intervention) and weight loss maintenance. Prior to that I qualified with an honours degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics through UCT after completing an honours degree in Exercise Science.
