Michaela completed her Dietetics degree at the University of Pretoria in 2014. Afterwards she did her community service year in rural KZN and went on to gain more experience in the private practice and hospital setting in Newcastle. Wanting to become either a chef or a medical doctor, Michaela decided to choose an occupation where she could take the best of both jobs and combine her love for good food and her passion for helping people. Being a dietitian gives her exactly that. Working together with clients and seeing them grow achieve their goals makes her happy and she strives to provide highly individualized and personal nutritional therapy to each client, but most importantly to make healthy eating fun and doable to everyone. Michaela’s special interests include diabetes, gut health as well as mindful eating and she is currently completing a master’s degree in diabetes with the University of South Wales.
I Studied BSc (Dietetics) at the University of Limpopo, MEDUNSA Campus, now known as Sefako Makgatho Health Science University. I started practicing as a Community Service Dietician in 2011 at Kgapane Hospital outside Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province; and from 2012 onwards as an independent Dietician. I also served as a member of the Executive Management of the same hospital as a Quality Assurance Manager for 3 years coordinating and managing programs like National Core Standards, Complaints Management, Adverse events and other quality programs. I was also running a small private practice part time at Kgapane Medical Centre.
Now I am working with a very diverse team pursuing my passion in nutrition, I do this in seeing my clients one-2-one, in a group setting, giving group or school talks and even presenting on radio including Thobela FM, Sloot FM and Alex FM to name a view. I am a proud ambassador for dieticians and healthy nutrition.
My special interest is in weight management and Paediatric nutrition.
I believe that our bodies are vessels that need to be consistently fueled with good nutrients to be able to carry us from one place to the other just as the car is regularly serviced to be able to take us from one point to the other, failure to do that will result in our bodies crashing .
