"I look forward to start your journey of transformation to a healthier you!"
I stumbled upon the dietetics career by accident in my final years of high school and immediately knew this field was calling my name. I went off and studied dietetics at the University of Pretoria, balancing multiple residence activities, HC activities and a difficult but rewarding degree.
During my final year of studying, I worked in various different clinics and hospitals. I was found all the way from Mamelodi’s clinics to CHBAH in Johannesburg. My community service year was completed in a 720-bed regional hospital and it provided me with skills and knowledge that I will forever carry with me. All these clinics and hospitals have provided me with confidence in both in- and outpatient management of all types of patients.
I enjoy challenges and often find myself with tackling many different tasks and challenges at once. I don’t enjoy sitting still and always find ways to keep myself busy. I enjoy being physically active and partake in sports activities such as boxing and hiking in my spare time. I also enjoy other stimulating activities such as reading and crocheting.
Some fun facts about me:
- I too have high cholesterol and have been managing it myself (with lifestyle and diet) for the past 6 years.
- I am a certified PADI rescue diver and will always be somewhere under water during my leave periods.
- My favourite season is Spring, even if it’s still a bit chilly – it beats the cold weather by far!
- I enjoy gardening and had a big veggie garden. It’s a project I need to start up again.
- I prefer vegetables over any other food group.
- Sushi Wednesdays are a tradition in our house and I always have it on a Wednesday.
- I have skydived before, as well as bungy-jumped.
- All shades of green can be considered my favourite colour.
- A food I absolutely can’t develop a taste for is beetroot.
- I enjoy crocheting little fruits and veggies to hand out as gifts.
My special interests include chronic diseases (high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes mellitus etc.), weight loss and gut disorders / health.
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!
