Upon completing a Bachelor of Science and a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics, Stephanie become an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Sports Dietitian with a particular passion for sports nutrition and its role in achieving performance outcomes. She also is a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia and Sports Dietitian Australia establishments. Stephanie has practical experience working with a variety of athletes, assisting them in achieving their own performance, body composition and rehabilitation goals. Furthermore, she has experience in providing nutritional advice for disordered eating habits, reduced energy availability for safely cutting weight for competitive athletes.
Outside of sports dietetics, Stephanie also enjoys tackling more clinical issues, such as PCOS, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and food intolerances. Treating these types of nutrition issues is a major key to improving quality of life and age expectancy. However, Stephanie believes that prevention is better than treating an issue after onset, and it is therefore important to instil healthy eating habits that become part of an individuals’ lifestyle, and not just a short-term plan.
As a power lifter herself, Stephanie understands how poor nutrition choices can affect strength, recovery, endurance and overall wellbeing. Through experimenting with her own diet to improve performance outcomes, Stephanie has experienced the value in using diet and supplementation strategies to achieve her own strength goals.
Stephanie’s ambition as practicing dietitian is to assist athletes in achieving their goals through advice on optimal diet, supplementation and recovery strategies. She also aims to encourage everyday individuals to adopt healthy habits as a part of their lifestyle to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
To achieve this, Stephanie realises that realises that each person is an individual, and therefore takes the time to thoroughly understand every client and create a plan that suits their lifestyle and needs. Her advice is always based on scientific principles, which are then used to develop simple and practical strategies for achieving each client’s goals. Stephanie finds satisfaction in seeing other people achieve their goals while maintaining a balanced lifestyle, and consequently preaches the principle of moderation, not deprivation.
