About Diane

I have 30 years experience working as a Dietitian in both public and private sectors. This, combined with my years of experience in life - I feel very well equipped to assist/enable my clients in the many areas of health management they may require, including the mental and physical challenges people face when making lifestyle changes. I enjoy working with people of all ages from children through to senior adults - boys and girls, men and women.

I have first hand experience with family members living with Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and PCOS. I am passionate about helping people with these conditions - not limited to this of course! I have 2 young adults (the 3rd has moved out - now working in New York) still living at home and have successfully survived 3 HSC's (only just)! I have a personal interest in photography - particularly of food, people and nature!

My philosophy is: "everybody loves food", so exercise, in some capacity, just has to be part of the equation! We need to enjoy our lives and that includes eating. We must keep things simple - that's really important. Key concepts...take home messages... I am very lucky to be working with a team of experts in all practices. I have also established a wonderful network of excellent medical and allied health professionals including GP's, Endocrinologists - both Adult and Paediatric, Paediatricians, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Credentialed Diabetes Educators and Exercise Physiologists - which facilitates great team communication for patients.

I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutritionist and am bound by the DAA's code of ethics. In order to keep my accreditation valid I am involved in ongoing, Continuing Professional Development, which is assessed by the Dietitians Association of Australia each year.
