About Kelly

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in 2000 at Monash University and went on to attain a Master's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at Deakin University in Melbourne in 2003. Since graduating, I've had the opportunity to work in the hospital, aged care, research and private practice settings. I'm an Accredited Practising Dietitian and a current member of Dietitians Australia. I am a registered Medicare, DVA and private health fund provider.

I enjoy working one-on-one with clients and helping make a difference in their wellbeing. I love food and all the good that food can do. I use a patient-centred approach to nutrition care and focus on the individual and the holistic nature of a person's health, not only on one or two measurable parameters. I'm passionate about women's health, and have been providing face-to-face and Telehealth consulting at Jean Hailes for Women in East Melbourne since 2019 - a role which I thoroughly enjoy. 

I also have a special interest in the dietary management of gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and I'm well versed in the application of the low FODMAP three-phased diet to help improve symptoms. I've completed the Monash University 'Low FODMAP Diet for IBS' online training course for health professionals.

I encourage my clients to have a healthy relationship with food. I promote eating a variety of wholesome foods from all food groups.  I don't encourage weight loss diets or unnecessary restrictive eating practices. I encourage principles of mindful and intuitive eating and non-diet approaches which are weight inclusive and body positive.

Apart from spending time with family and friends, I enjoy being outdoors. I find walking, hiking or jogging whilst listening to positive audio a great boost, both physically and mentally. 

I look forward to working with you and helping you on your own journey to better health and wellbeing. If you'd like to get in touch please email me or complete our Appointment Request form.
