About me


I’m a registered dietitian from South Africa and obtained my BSc in Dietetics from the University of Stellenbosch in 2012. After relocating to Hong Kong in 2019, I decided to shift to online consultations with a special interest in lifestyle nutrition and weight management, and to help people who struggle with emotional eating.

One on One virtual nutrition coaching

I work with you to uncover your relationship with food and your body. We look at where you have been, where you’re at now and what steps we can take to improve your nutrition.

It’s important to establish a firm foundation of healthy eating behaviour in the beginning. This will ensure that your relationship with food improves.

Individual one on one virtual consultations gives me the opportunity to focus on you, and help identify ways to improve your nutrition that suit your medical nutritional needs and lifestyle.

My Nutrition Philosophy

  • I use evidence based nutrition guidelines throughout consultations. I am able to translate this into simple terms that can be implemented on a daily basis.
  • I’m not going to sell you anything but my educated advice. No detoxes, no cleanses. No counting calories.
  • Nutrition can be simple. Go back to basics.
  • Eat to fuel your body, not your emotions.
  • Don’t be fixated on the number on the scale. It does not define you and your worth.
  • You don’t have to eat organic to be “healthy“.
  • Eat a variety of foods. The more colours and variety of whole foods the better.
  • Focus on what you can eat more of to fuel your mind and body (No restrictions).
  • There are no good and bad foods. 80 – 20 rule: 80 % of your diet should be foods that fuel your body with nutrients. 20 % should be foods that fuel you soul… Have your cake and eat it.
  • Consistency is key, slow and steady wins the race. It’s not about perfection, it’s about progress.
  • You know what’s best for you. I’m here to help guide and support you
  • You only have one body, so look after as best you can.
  • Be active, get moving, get outside.
  • Nutrition changes require input from you. You must be committed, open, honest and ready for change.

Are we a good fit?

I work towards helping you create an eating routine, in which your body is nourished regularly.
You know what’s best for you. I’m here to help guide and support you.
