HELLO, I'M JENNY

Mind & Body Dietitian

I am a mother of two beautiful girls, a wife, a dog lover, a food lover and I am passionate about helping women learn to fully live in their body and heal their relationship with food. 

Food has always been a major part of my life. From a young age I was brought up learning the ropes of how to run my parents successful restaurant in Sydney's Eastern suburbs. I loved seeing the many happy faces come into our restaurant excited to sit down to one of their favourite meals. There was no doubt I would embark on a career in food and nutrition.


I graduated with honours in a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Wollongong and have worked in variety of settings from hospitals to private clinics helping people nourish themselves through food.


I have seen first hand the struggles many people have with an unwanted food challenge or eating habit such as emotional eating, binge eating, overeating, endless dieting and body and weight concerns.

I witnessed many patterns, people who could not lose weight, people who lost 20 kgs and then put it all back on, people who obsessed about what they ate and how much they weighed on the scale. I saw a lot of shame, guilt and negativity around how people felt in their bodies and around their eating patterns. 

I wanted to understand why this was happening to so many of my clients and so I dug into the weight loss research and found that an astonishing 95% of people who lose weight regain it back plus more within 5 years! This was exactly what many of my clients were experiencing and it was a revelation.

I decided to further my knowledge and trained in Eating Psychology with world renown Nutritional Psychologist Marc David. I practice nutrition counselling through a Non-Diet/Health at Every Size approach and blend eating psychology with nutrition science to help people understand why they are stuck with a food or eating challenge. 

People are drowning in nutritional confusion and I am here to help guide you to a positive and empowering relationship with food.
