After studying both marketing and nutrition at the University of Otago I worked at Southern Hospitality as part of their social media and website development team. After a year I decided to go on and complete my Masters of Dietetics at Otago and finished in 2015. I then spent some time doing some contract work including rest homes and as an in-store nutritionist for foodstuffs. I am now back in Dunedin working as part of the inpatient team at Dunedin hospital. I have been involved in both the Christchurch and more recently the Southern branch of Dietitians NZ. I bring enthusiasm for getting students and other new Graduates involved in Dietitians NZ, as well as breath of practice and marketing/comms/media – sales & sponsorship skills to Council.
