Hi, I'm Sandra!
I’m a Brisbane-based nutritionist that helps my clients take charge of their own health by guiding them to make healthier nutrition and lifestyle changes. I also present seminars, workshops and cooking demonstrations for groups and create nutrition content for other businesses.
Nutrition and fitness wasn’t always a priority for me when I was younger, but after attending a nutrition seminar several years ago I realised the great importance of nutrition and the impact it can have on our overall health. I was intrigued to know more, and eventually decided to leave my career in the travel industry to complete a degree in nutrition.
Many clients know already that their current dietary and lifestyle choices aren’t serving them, but their main challenge often lies in actually implementing healthier changes. Because of this, as well as educating my clients in nutrition basics, I like to explore their barriers to behaviour change and together we create strategies to overcome these barriers. I love seeing my clients reach their health goals, and share in their enjoyment as they notice positive changes, both inside and out.
I hold a BSc in Public Health Nutrition from Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences. As new evidence is constantly emerging within the field of nutrition I keep updated by following current research and completing additional courses on specific areas within nutrition. I have currently completed several courses on topics including the microbiota and gut health, nutrition for pregnancy and diabetes, as well as exercise science and psychology.
I have a particular interest and experience in the areas of gut health, women’s health, and weight management. I can also help with nutrition advice for general health and wellbeing.

My aim is to create interest and excitement around healthier food choices,
and to spread the message that healthy food doesn’t have to be boring!
I hope to get more people interested in knowing what's in their food, thinking about what they eat and the effect it has on their health, energy levels and overall wellbeing.

When it comes to nutrition I don't believe that there’s a one-size-fits-all approach - every "body" is different.
Instead, I prefer to tailor my recommendations to suit each client’s requirements, lifestyle and health goals, using evidence-based nutrition advice.
I don’t believe in quick-fixes, pills, shakes, restrictive diets or deprivation.
I believe instead that healthy eating, combined with an active lifestyle, is
the key to overall good health.
