Working as a registered dietitian for Shelly Meltzer & Associates, I have gained extensive experience in sports, clinical and community nutrition. Over the last 13 years I have had the opportunity to consult with national and provincial sporting teams, active individuals of all levels and ages, and various corporate and food service organizations. I have also presented numerous workshops to the public, sports teams and coaches, health professionals and students and contributed to several sports nutrition publications.
My aim is to provide person-centred care, whether consulting in-person or remotely, and for that reason, I recently completed an MSc Psychology. In addition to studying over the last five years, I have travelled extensively, lived in China, and have had two children. All these experiences have further broadened my approach in assisting people to achieve and maintain optimal nutrition in different settings and stages of life. I am currently based in Johannesburg.
