I'm an Auckland-based New Zealand Registered Dietitian with seven-years' experience specialising in the nutritional needs of the elderly, I understand their unique nutritional needs and the situations you might find yourself in when trying to help them. 

Community has always been important to me with my personal experience of living in multi-generational settings. 

I thrive from helping families and individuals become independent with making their own health and nutrition decisions. 

Together we can address the nutritional problems you may be facing, help you manage medical conditions and provide the right support that keeps your elder as independent as possible and enjoying every day.
