Bachelor of Science (Majoring in Food Science and Nutrition) (University of Western Sydney)

Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)

Level 1 ISAK Accreditation (Skin Fold Testing)

Registered Personal Trainer (Australian College of Physical Education) (Fitness Australia)

Meet Aimee, an Accredited Practising Dietitian committed to promoting realistic change for individuals. Aimee incorporates a tailored and integrative approach to nutrition, empowering clients to understand self-management strategies through combining practical skills such as her 4P’s - ‘Planning, Purchasing, Preparing and Personalising’ into her practice. Her goal is to work collaboratively with individuals to ensure they can confidently apply recommended dietary changes into their daily routine and lifestyle.  

Aimee has a rich sporting background having represented NSW and attended national training camps in Bendigo and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) for indoor and beach volleyball, exposing her to the importance of a well-fueled diet and sound nutrition principles, igniting her nutrition pathway. On completion of Aimee’s undergraduate degree, she worked passionately as a nutrition consultant and personal trainer consolidating interpersonal skills and nutritional knowledge where her hunger for medical nutrition therapy inspired her to study her Masters to become an APD.

Throughout Aimee’s experiences, she has developed a sound understanding in the nutritional management of oncology, mental health, diverticular disease, diabetes (Type 2 and Gestation) and management of team sports. However, Aimee has a growing passion for IBS/’gut’ health, especially as research builds around the unique relationship between the gut and brain. She believes it isn’t as simple as providing a blanket statement to everyone with gut issues, but scientifically identifying one’s link between their mind, body, diet and lifestyle.

Aimee’s values include taking a unique, sustainable and mindful approach to her practice. Holding close these values, she aspires to support individuals with their own nutrition goals, without restriction whilst encouraging a positive mindset around food. Aimee hopes to inspire individuals to be at the forefront of their mental and physical health through the translation of food science into practical everyday recommendations and advice. After all, everybody deserves a chance for change!

In combination with her love for different cuisines, baking, creating and modifying recipes and spending hours in the supermarket, Aimee enjoys jump rope, running, creating HIIT and pilates circuits. She is also an enthusiastic pilates instructor and personal trainer, understanding the importance of exercise in the journey to good health and longevity.
