RD(SA)

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!

Deciding on a career comes easy for some, some know from early childhood, some only know in high school and others only decide in matric. As shocking as it may be, I fall under the very last category. I had my mind set on engineering, all up until grade 11. Not necessarily because I loved it but rather because that’s what I thought was the right thing to do. Deep down I have always had the feeling of wanting to be in the health industry, but I never knew what I would like, until a relative told me about the profession; dietetics.

It sparked my interest immediately and so I did as much research as I could and shadowed 2 dieticians; one in the hospital and one in private practice and I was sold! From then on, my interest only grew. The profession was especially close to home because I had and still have relatives affected by lifestyle related chronic diseases. This inspired me to become a dietician to make a difference in prevention and management with regards to these types of diseases and much more.

It goes without saying I really enjoy working with chronic diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure etc. I especially love the private sector because you get to track the progress of each individual and see them improve and work through set backs and achievements. You get to work with them side by side through all of the temptations, goal setting, hiccups, failures and eventual success to see them come out stronger, with more knowledge and better habits. Needless to say, seeing adults with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, metabolic syndrome and renal disease, is my special interest in my line of work.

I would love to continue in the private sector and one day develop my own recipe book.
