Tanya is committed to continuing her professional development (CPD). To ensure that her knowledge and practice is based on current scientific evidence, she attends various courses and study days in her interests.
“As a dietician my job is to promote healthy living. It is a job I enjoy to do because it is like being an artist. I create healthy living and well being by using the different colours of the rainbow in the form of food and different textures of artwork in the form of exercise and lifestyle. Most important I enjoy making a difference in the health of others in my community and beyond”.Tanya, Dietician
“As a dietician I treat patients with respect and dignity in a fair and professional manner to establish trust. I will ensure quality and care in an appropriate manner. I will do all of the above with a passionate and enthusiastic personality and always do my best.” Tanya, Dietician
“As a person I know how food can change your life and brighten up your future. I have first hand experience in dealing with eating disorders and how it mentally and emotionally affects ones life. I also have dealt with autoimmune diseases very close to home and I understand how all the components (Body, Mind and Soul) need to work together for better living and healthier choices” Tanya, Dietician
