I began my career 20 years ago as a research pathologist in the agricultural industry and, over a period of ten years, I developed a deep, first-hand understanding of the effect that pathogens and environmental toxins have on our food, our bodies and consequently, our health. However, despite my career experiences, it was ultimately my own health struggles which created my current path.
As a teenage, I started to experience a range of health problems that affected me both physically and mentally. Years of medical doctors, specialists and money later, I was still suffering and no closer to understanding why I wasn’t feeling better or what I needed to do to live a healthy and happy life. I was ready to give up (to say the least!). Then, by chance, I met the most wonderful and intelligent Naturopath. She listened to my story – we spent hours going through my health history, further tests were done (many of which the doctors had thought unnecessary!), and slowly, over time and many conversations, I finally felt as though I was back in the world of the living. My experience with this Naturopath and the amazing results that we achieved together, was the final motivating force I needed to begin my own journey towards natural medicine.
Given my strong scientific background, I continually strive to provide the most up-to-date and evidenced-based information to my patients to ensure that I am providing you with the best care possible. With a focus on biochemistry, genetics, pathology testing and the use of targeted nutritional supplementation, herbal formulations, dietary plans and supportive lifestyle strategies, my goal is to work with you to strengthen your body’s ability to heal.
I am a registered member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS) and practice according to their professional Code of Conduct.
I want to educate and empower you to own your path to optimal health.
