Private Practice:

I am originally from the City of Choice, Pietermaritzburg where I completed my qualification in Dietetics and Human Nutrition at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. I have gained a vast amount of knowledge and skills over my years of studying and internship.

After my final year, I went on to do my community service in a rural town in the Free State where I developed and grew my knowledge and skills even further. I believe in a holistic nutritional approach when treating and managing patients with their dietary issues. I have special interests in the nutritional treatment and management of obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and nutrition during all stages of pregnancy.
