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 contribute to other publications. I co-host a weekly endurance sport podcast called 'Fitter Radio' and have worked with some notable NZ'ers at helping them achieve their nutrition-related goals, including Nigel Latta (on 'The Sugar' episode) and Simon Gault (on the documentary series 'Why are we Fat?').
