About me

Hi, I'm Hollie, a Perth-based Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist, with a special interest in plant-based nutrition.

I have been vegan since 2010, and vegetarian for 12 years prior to that. As an ethical vegan, I am passionate about supporting people to adopt, and maintain, a healthy plant-based diet; whilst also highlighting the numerous benefits of a compassionate and low-impact lifestyle.

My goal is to provide my patients with the tools and knowledge they need to improve their current, and future, health through sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices.

I recommend a whole food, plant-based diet, consisting of a variety of whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in minimally-processed forms. This way of eating optimises health and wellbeing, and reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes² and cardiovascular disease³.

Areas of special interest

  • Vegan, vegetarian, and whole food plant-based diets

  • Lifestyle medicine and preventative nutrition therapy

  • Dietary management of:

    • Inflammatory and autoimmune conditions

    • Chronic disease

    • Gastrointestinal disorders

  • Pregnancy and prenatal nutrition; and

  • Sustainable food production practices and zero-waste strategies.
