I was born in Pretoria and raised in the Lowveld. BUT… Before that, we moved to KZN, right after I was born, where I lived for 4 years, all of which I had to use a nebuliser chronically because of all the heavy metals in the air.
I developed my passion for dietetics late in my high school career, which made me replace Accounting with Life Sciences in the half of my Grade 11 year.
I graduated from the North West University – Potchefstroom Campus with a BSc Dietetics degree. I completed my community service year in Virginia, Free State.
My hobbies are singing, cooking, baking and adventure, although it would take me about 30 minutes to gather myself before jumping off a cliff into water due to my fear of heights!
I believe in disease prevention, and good nutrition and healthy lifestyle interventions play a vital role in that regard. I have a special interest in renal disease (kidney disease), child feeding, picky eaters, weight loss, diabetes, high blood pressure, hypercholesterolemia, fertility and nutrigenetics.
I am based in Garsfontein (Dr LC de Kock) and Rooihuiskraal (Medipark Dental Centre), Kempton Park (Birchmed Medical Centre) and Online.
Remember, the first step in a new direction doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be a step.
Let me help you take a step to a better and healthier you!
