I want you to be as healthy as possible so that you can live your satisfying life. Together we will work to prioritise changes to help you achieve your goals and monitor the impact of your lifestyle changes using meaningful technologies.
At Nutrition IQ we use energy metabolism testing and other new technologies to truly individualise and prescribe medical nutrition therapy. To further my expertise in nutrition for optimising energy metabolism, I attended the Sport Nutrition Course for Dietitians with SDA in November 2018 and have Level 1 ISAK anthropometry accreditation.
I consider your unique health profile, previous diet experience and individual food preferences within your work and family life. This individualised approach results in planning food patterns for you to achieve and maintain your health goals.
I am proficient in encouraging the adoption of the current evidence-based nutrition for managing and preventing heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. I also have a special interest in weight management, gastrointestinal conditions and healthy family food habits.
Along with my husband, I have 4 young adults I enjoy supporting, each with athletic tendencies including soccer or rowing. I love food and cooking, enjoy entertaining on both large and small scales and sharing food experiences with family, friend and clients. There is no such thing as a secret recipe.
Matt is equally passionate about health and wellness. As a state-level representative in athletics and triathlon as a junior, Matt has continued competing in endurance sports for the past 20 years.
As an accountant by trade, Matt looks after all of the back-end operations of Nutrition IQ. He finds what most of us think as boring as an challenge to conquer. You will often hear his voice on the other end of the phone if you call for an appointment or just need some more information about our services.
Matt is also focussed on developing our corporate health side of the business.
