I am Emily, or you can call me Em. I am very excited to have joined Ash and Kat as a Dietitian in the amazing Body Fusion team!
My motivation to become a Dietitian arose at a young age. The first seed was planted from my love of food and cooking. Through this love, I have discovered the power of food and nutrition, and its ability to make a difference to one’s health. The second seed evolved from my love of engaging with people and desire to positively influence those I meet. These seeds have grown and flourished into my passion for food and nutrition, and as a Dietitian I am able to share this with my clients.
I like to think of myself as positive and optimistic, and I feel that this stems from the way I nourish and move my body. I absolutely love everything about food…eating, cooking, discovering new products, experimenting with ingredients…the list goes on. Living an active lifestyle is a big part of who I am. In my own time, I enjoy walking, the gym, cycling, yoga, swimming and surfing. I am lucky to live close by the beach, and I love spending time here. I understand that we are all different, and I truly believe that living a wholesome and active lifestyle is about finding what you enjoy and what works for you!
You will see from my background that I graduated from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Honours). Professional experience in hospital and community organisations has given me the opportunity to work with adults, children and families in various areas of dietetics. Through these roles, I have developed an understanding and appreciation for the importance of food and nutrition in the prevention and treatment of acute and chronic diseases.
I find satisfaction in helping and guiding clients on their health journeys, however I feel that the real fulfilment lies within seeing clients achieve their goals and establish a healthy relationship with food. In practice, my aim is to provide clients with knowledge and practical skills that empowers them to achieve their health intentions and goals.
Now that you have gotten to know me a little more, I hope to return the favour. I am looking forward to learning about you and working with you on your health and nutrition journey.
