Rachel is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian who enjoys cooking, baking and talking about food so much so that she turned it into a career! Rachel graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Nutrition) and continued to pursue a Masters of Dietetics at Curtin.
Rachel’s passion for nutrition stems from her belief that living with chronic disease does not mean you have to give up all your favourite foods. Rachel adopts an approach where she focuses first on supporting her clients to understand why dietary change is recommended and thereafter seeks to empower them in eliciting sustainable change best suited to their individual circumstances. Rachel prides herself on being approachable, personable and believes that living well is about aiming to consume all foods in moderation! Much like exercise, Rachel believes that food is medicine as what we eat can have profound effects on our overall health.
Rachel derives great job satisfaction from journeying with her clients as they achieve their health goals and believes in the proverb, ‘Slow and steady wins the race.’ Her areas of interest include diabetes (T1, T2, Gestational), PCOS, carbohydrate counting, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease.
Rachel’s hobbies include cooking and trying out new recipes, travelling, wandering through supermarket aisles to see what new products have hit our shelves and spending time with family and friends over a good coffee.
