Hey, I'm Laura
I'm a Clinical Nutritionist and Exercise Scientist, passionate about helping you to feel your best
My path as a nutritionist was sparked by my passion to empower people to take charge of their own health, after doing the same for myself.
We live in a society where that power seems to have been forgotten; where individuals place their health in the hands of someone else. I assist my clients to take back that power through teaching them how to implement sustainable changes and make their health an asset to their life instead of a burden.
After completing my first degree in Exercise and Health Science and seeing the limited impact that exercise alone can have on an individuals health, I decided to embark on a second degree in nutrition. I now hold comprehensive knowledge and experience implementing dietary and lifestyle strategies to enhance my clients wellbeing. I am fascinated by the human body and the profound impact that small and sustainable changes, along with a shift in mindset and perspective, can have on an individuals physiology and long-term health.
I take a holistic and practical approach to assisting my clients and acknowledge the intricate way that the body functions.
I have a strong focus on client education and partner with my clients to ensure necessary changes integrate with their life demands.
No matter where you are on your journey, I'll meet you there and support you on your way to better health.
I believe that what you put into your body is the greatest determinant of your health
It all began with my own health journey
I grew up in a classic Aussie household, full of packaged food and eating for convenience over health. Don't get me wrong, I am incredibly grateful to my parents for feeding me to the best of their knowledge and ability, some don't get the opportunity for that at all. However, my childhood diet led to excess weight, poor gut health and an immune system that was taken down by everything, leading to chronic antibiotic use.
In my early teens I was exhausted, anxious, and unhappy with my appearance, so I decided to start looking after myself. Flash forward to my early 20's and I was obsessed with 'health' and my appearance. I was eating low calorie foods, my gut health was all over the place, I was hungry and thinking about food all the time and was intensely exercising 2 if not 3 times a day.
I was drawn to learn more about what 'healthy' eating really meant as it was clearly not what I originally thought. This journey is a blessing as it has led me to my life's purpose. After studying the ins and outs of nutritional medicine and exercise science for years I have expanded my knowledge and have seen the healing powers of food and considered movement in myself and my clients. Food can absolutely be used as medicine to heal the body. After all, every single cell in your body is made from the fuel you put in (food!)
