About Me

My Journey

I’m a New Zealand based Registered Nutritionist, Naturopath and Medical Herbalist.

I have always been fascinated by how our body works and our biochemistry.

I found myself on a journey to find a natural, holistic way to deal with illness, chronic disease and inflammation. 

As a mother to three children, I know how crazy life can get, we are so busy making sure everyone else is happy and cared for but at the cost of our own health and wellbeing.

I have a special interest in digestive disorders (I have Crohn's Disease) as well as children's health and genetics.

My youngest was born prematurely and struggles with allergies/hypersensitivity, a range of learning and attention issues and refractory absent epilepsy. After many failed attempts of drug therapies, I learnt first-hand how effective diet can be in reducing his seizures and improving his attention and ability to learn.

This amazing journey lead me to discover the power of Herbal and Nutritional therapy and its effects on the digestive system and brain health.

I believe wellness is deeply individual and true healing comes when we look at ourselves as a complete and whole person, mind, body and soul. 

As part of my practice and philosophy, I strive to not only educate my patients but empower them to live better and healthier lives.
