About Me

I have a Bachelor of Health Science degree in Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine. I put much of my time into education to support patients along the WLS journey, with a range of personal stories positioned to inspire people who feel lost or stuck. The idea is to expose the resilience, persistence, and commitment required over the long term.

I have been a part of the WLS community for more than eight years, co-founder of BN Healthy Australia. In my previous life – I studied and practiced Health and Nutrition, Personal Fitness Training, and Remedial and Sports Massage Therapy for more than 20 years. 

My passion is supporting others to see their potential and being a stickler for making sure every fact is revealed for others to learn and implement easily!
