Background
Recently moved to Whangarei (July 2017) after spending 5 years studying in Auckland. Prior to this I was working in the construction industry before deciding on an unexpected career change. I enjoy meeting and building relationships with new people, and I have a passion for helping others improve their health through diet and lifestyle advice and support. As the newest member of the dietitian team here at Manaia, Iā€™m excited for the chance to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of people in the Northland community. I also look forward to learning more about local culture and Te Reo Maori.

Present Role
I am currently conducting clinics with Fiona, seeing patients with a variety of health challenges such as type 2 diabetes, and bowel issues. I have also been running the supermarket tours for patients seeking specific advice around healthy eating for a range of health conditions.
