Hello, 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.
Areas of special interest
Vegan, vegetarian and whole food plant-based diets;
Dietary management of:
Inflammatory and autoimmune conditions - including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and rosacea;
Chronic disease - including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and endocrine disorders;
Gastrointestinal disorders - including coeliac disease, diverticular disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), irritable bowel disease (IBD) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD);
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight;
Sustainable food production practices and zero-waste strategies; and
General healthy eating and nutrition for optimal health.
