Peta has been practising as a dietitian for over 10 years, she started off in regional New South Wagga running her own dietetics practice and working predominantly in the country supporting people suffering with common chronic conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol and weight management. These formative years were fundamental in building skills in assessment and nutritional interventions, as well as business management.
In addition, she begun building her skills and experience supporting families and kids with disordered, fussy eating and allergies/intolerances as an SOS trained dietitian and completed her Graduate Certificate in Paediatrics and Adolescence in 2015/16. Since joining the team at Sunshine Coast Dietetics in 2015, Peta has continued to build her skills in not only child and family health but also becoming the expert dietitian in gut health and managing complex gut disorders such as chronic gut pain, constipation/diarrhoea and functional gut disorders. This expertise and love of presenting and teaching others has created many opportunities within universities and government organisations to shape the future generation of dietitians and the public.
Peta passion, knowledge and experience over the last 10 years consulting to the public, building her business and working for a wide range of private and government enterprises, has lead to her current passion-project here in Dietitian Life. She feels she can continue making a greater impact on the health of the nation by inspiring graduates and practising dietitians to continue learning and challenging their themselves throughout their entire careers and keep them engaged in the profession forever.
