I graduated with Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition, and a Bachelor of Physical Education from the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. I attained my Masters in Science (Human Nutrition) with First Class Honours in 2003, focusing on the development of a childhood obesity prevention programme.
I obtained my PhD in 2011, completing my doctoral thesis in health and productivity in the New Zealand workforce.
I have been privately consulting with clients since 2006, and have worked with a vast number of people with different health and performance goals. I have a regular column in Bite Magazine, which is part of the New Zealand Herald and Kiwi Trail Runner magazine.
Currently I am also a Research Associate at AUT University, Auckland, teaching public health and sports performance nutrition. I am part of the Human Potential Centre researching the effects of low carbohydrate, high fat diets on health and performance outcomes for adults, children and athletes.
