I like to think that I definitely as a dietitian have an impact on my clients'/patients' lives. Nutrition is one of the key aspects of health and it can assist in managing disease but also preventing it. A statement I often like to use is "A healthy body= A healthy mind".
In a nutshell:
I completed my B.Sc Dietetics and Post graduate Diploma at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and from there I moved to Mpumalanga to do a year community service at Witbank Hospital.
Following my community service year I started doing locum work for numerous years at various Private practices in South Africa (Midwell Dietitians, M-Bay Dietitians, Vanessa McEwan Dietitian) and Private hospitals in Middelburg, Mossel Bay and Cape Town, where I got involved in many fields of Dietetics namely Sport Dietetics (Bootcamp& Crossfit), Renal Dialysis, Clinical , Consulting, Corporate(Wellness days and Vitality days) just to name a few.
I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa(HPCSA), The association of Dietetics in South Africa( ADSA) and Discovery Vitality.
