A lover of all things science and food related, it was only natural that Kaitlin would eventually dedicate her life to food science by becoming a dietitian. Kaitlin is a strong believer that knowledge is power and finds great joy in teaching her clients, family and friends about the many ways that food can assist them.
After finishing high school in 2009, Kaitlin went on to complete a Bachelor of Exercise Science and it was during this degree she uncovered her love for nutrition. She then went on to complete a Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Science, and in 2018 became a dietitian when she completed her Masters of Dietetics. Since graduating, Kaitlin has worked in research and private practice, with a particular passion for gut disorders such as IBS and IBD.
Kaitlin can use her evidence-based knowledge to:
- Assist in the nutritional management of a wide array of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, food allergies, gastrointestinal diseases and disorders (i.e. IBS and IBD), pregnancy, cancer, coeliac disease, liver and kidney disease and cystic fibrosis amongst many other conditions.
- Create personalised eating plans that take your medical conditions and/or personal circumstances in to account
- Assess your nutritional needs and assist in correcting any deficiencies
- Provide information on healthy eating, food shopping, eating out and preparing food at home
Kaitlin understands that everybody is unique and brings this view to her dietetic practice, providing individualised flexible advice and resources, which consider every aspect of the person and their lifestyle as well as the scientific evidence in the field.
Kaitlin is a strong believer in balance, not perfection when it comes to food. She practises what she preaches and eats everything from tuna and spinach to cheesecake and ice cream and everything in between.
As a keen learner, Kaitlin loves to spend her spare time reading the latest research from the nutrition world, completing further professional development and trialling new recipes. As a die-hard food lover, Kaitlin loves to explore all of the cafes and restaurants that Melbourne has to offer.
Kaitlin provides Dietician and Nutritionist services to Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Carlton North, Carlton, Abbotsford, Clifton Hill, Collingwood, Northcote, Thornbury, Brunswick, Brunswick East, Preston and Fairfield.
