I have worked for ~15 years in the industry with experience in key areas including food service management, research, private practice and industry consulting. I have regularly consulted to elite sporting teams and state and national sporting bodies.

I have consistently worked in a university setting teaching food service dietetics, nutrition science, sports nutrition, nutrition and physical activity and communication.
