I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little more about me and how I became a Naturopath.
As a child, I was always interested in how food could affect health. I remember picking up my first book on herbal medicine – I was hooked! And I devoured any information I could find on the subject. I would make all sorts of teas and lotions at home and drive my mother crazy when I would leave them all in the fridge and cupboards.
Fast forward to after high school and I began a nutrition degree but soon changed to my naturopathy course when I discovered I could learn about herbs. I graduated in 2003 with qualifications in Naturopathy, Western Herbal Medicine and Nutrition. I couldn’t stay out of school for long and went back to earn a massage qualification.
I’ve since been back to University and now hold a Bachelor of Health Science (Comp. Med) and have done further training in nutrigenomics to keep updating my knowledge – clearly I love learning.
I practice at ReMed in Lower Plenty and I have always been drawn to children’s health and wellbeing and my practice has a focus on food intolerances, OCD, anxiety, PANS and PANDAS. In 2018, I undertook a position in the PANS fellowship, working with a team under the guidance of Keonie Moore (Naturopath).
When I’m not in the clinic, I’m a Mum of 1. Also, I teach workshops nationally on nutrition and naturopathy, I love to cook and have a weakness for food related puns.
