I obtained my BSc. Dietetics Degree at the University of the Free State.
After completion of my community service year I moved to Johannesburg where I started a new private practice and worked as consultant dietitian in two already established practices. I also worked as a clinical dietitian in Rosebank, Morningside and Sandton Medi-clinic Hospitals. In 2011 I was selected twice to join the Prince of Saudi Arabia as his personal dietitian in the Seychelles, thereafter I moved back to Bloemfontein and started my own private practice.
Currently I’m practicing from my out-patient practice in Donald Murray Avenue nr 31, where I’m part of the amazing team at SmartCare. I also work as a locum at Rosepark Hospital.
I completed a course in Nutrition and Genetics through DNAlysis and I am accredited to have DNA Diet Tests done. This is healthy personalized weight loss based on your genetics. One of the first products of its kind in the world, DNA Diet tests for different scientifically researched genes that impact metabolism and fat loss. The results provide individual recommendations that include gene-based personalised dietary changes, an eating plan to achieve optimal weight loss, and guidance as to the type and amount of exercise required according to your specific genetic composition.
I have a passion for healthy living and assisting people with scientific facts on how to improve their health.
I have a special interest in lifestyle diseases such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, diabetes, all gastro-intestinal problems (e.g. IBS, Spastic colon, etc.), Allergies and Intolerances and Nutrition in Sport is one of my favourites.
I enjoy helping people, and teaching them how to change their lifestyle to improve their overall health.
