Hi, I'm Hollie, a Perth-based Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist, with a special interest in plant-based nutrition.
I hold a Master of Nutrition and Dietetics from Griffith University, and have completed a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition through eCornell.
Through my work as a Dietitian, I enjoy supporting others to make sense of this ever-changing - and often conflicting - food environment we live in; and to realise that following a healthy whole food plant-based diet can be simple, economical, and satisfying.
I have been vegan myself since 2010, and vegetarian for 12 years prior to that. As an ethical vegan and environmentally-conscious citizen, I am also a passionate advocate for 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 also serve as WA Lead Dietitian for Doctors for Nutrition; an Australian health-promotion charity led by medical and dietetic professionals dedicated to bringing food back to healthcare.

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
In addition to plant-based nutrition, I have a special interest in the following areas:
Lifestyle medicine and preventative nutrition therapy
Dietary management of:
Inflammatory and autoimmune conditions
Pregnancy and prenatal nutrition; and
Sustainable food production practices and zero-waste strategies.
