Mandy is an APD, and a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia. She has spent many years working in medical research and this drives her belief and practice of providing nutritional advice and counselling that is based on solid scientific evidence. Working
in private practice enables Mandy to practice according to her values of promoting
sustainable, positive health change. As everyone is an individual (with a
unique health profile, individual food likes and dislikes, and a family/work
life), Mandy understands that there cannot possibly be a ‘one diet fits all’ approach.

nutrition. They translate scientific

development in order to remain accredited, ensuring that their knowledge and
skills are always up to date.

as well as education and counselling. Follow-up appointments are used
