I have always been interested in nutrition since I was a teenager. I struggled with my body image and I was always researching for the latest weight loss diet.
I then decided to study a Bachelor of Dietetics at the University of Turin after high school to learn more. I undertook several clinical placements during the three years degree, and I gained knowledge about many health conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer. After I graduated I realized that I did not want to work in a hospital (many dietitians do) and with very sick people (it's just not me, but I really admire people that can do that!), but what I wanted to do was helping people staying away from the hospital and helping them learing how to eat healthy.
After moving to Australia, I started a bachelor of Nutritional Medicine at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies in Sydney. During my second Bachelor I learnt a new approach about nutrition: the holistic approach. Holistic refers to addressing the whole person, including their physical, mental, and emotional health, while taking social factors into consideration.
After I completed the Bachelor of Nutritional Medicine I finally felt ready to practice and help people live their healthiest and happiest life.
I educate and practice in an evidence based manner, meaning that everything you will read here is completely crap-free. I break down the myths and misconception in the industry to provide you with practical knowledge to improve your health and wellbeing. I love educating my clients about food from the supermarket to the table!
