Hello! Hi! My name is Bec, I am Active Ability’s new dietitian. I absolutely love food, so it is no surprise that this is where my studies led me. The more I learnt, the more I realised how amazing our bodies are and how important it is that we nourish it with the right foods. A healthy diet is one that makes you feel good both physically and mentally. I am a firm believer that food is medicine and as a dietitian I help translate scientific nutritional information and research into practical advice. I have experience in both clinical and community settings as a dietitian, and have a background in disability support work. My job is a rewarding one and I love equipping people with the knowledge and skills to build a healthy lifestyle, rather than just short-term fixes. On the weekend, you might find me cooking in the kitchen, drinking coffee or heading down the south coast for a swim, hike or to cuddle my family dog!
