Joanna is a weight neutral dietitian who practices within the Health At Every Size (HAES®) framework. She has had experience working across private practice, clinical, community, food services and research. She can tailor dietetic and nutrition advice to all ages and addresses specific areas such as chronic disease management and prevention.
Joanna’s background has allowed her to develop a particular interest in the areas of oral, gut and skin health. Having worked in the dental industry for many years, Joanna has seen the impact poor nutrition can have on one’s oral health, and having watched her sister struggle with eczema, food allergies and intolerances, her grandfather pass from colon cancer, and her own struggle with acne and reflux. Joanna understands first-hand the importance of good oral, gut and skin health, and their impact on not only the individual’s overall health and wellbeing but their families too.
Joanna is a compassionate dietitian who prides herself on going the extra mile for her patients, and ensures that their needs are met whilst providing evidence based care. Joanna practices in the areas of chronic disease management, gut health, oral health, skin health and weight management through the HAES® (Health At Every Size) framework.
Outside of the clinic, Joanna enjoys spending her spare time with her family and friends, travelling and watching her husband get the grill and smoker running.
