Victoria is an Accredited Practising Dietitian with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Honours) from the University of Wollongong.
Victoria has been working in private practice for the past 18 months. Prior to joining the NND team she also worked as a clinical dietitian at Canterbury, Royal Prince Alfred and the Mater Hospitals, where she provided nutritional interventions to surgical recovery, cardiology, neurological and oncology patients, as well those with diabetes.
Victoria has an interest in sustainable weight management, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes and completed her research thesis on person-centred practice with weight and chronic disease management. She understands that no two-people are alike, and provides individualised nutritional advice to all clients. Having come from a family that has had significant health and lifestyle challenges, Victoria understands the issues faced with weight management. Nothing gives her greater satisfaction than helping her clients achieve their nutritional goals and witnessing the positive effects it has on their overall wellbeing.
Victoria also enjoys presenting nutritional information to the community. She presents nutrition education and cooking lessons to Refugee families, as a part of the NSW Refugee Health Service: Promoting Healthy Outcomes for Refugees. She has also presented on behalf of the Cancer Council Australia, as a facilitator for the “Eat It to Beat It” program and “Fruit and Veg Sense” workshops.
