I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics at the University of Stellenbosch at the end of 2014. I then moved back to my home town, Calvinia, to complete a year of community service.
In 2016, I started my private practice in Calvinia and served surrounding towns for the year. At the beginning of 2017, I joined the team of dietitains at Anika Registered dietitians in Cape Town.
My experience as dietitian in a variety of settings , gave me a unique understanding of the needs of a wide spectrum of patients. This also helped me develop a variety of skills, which I use to the full advantage of my patients.
I am a firm believer that leading a healthy lifestyle should be enjoyable, if it is to be sustainable – every food has a place.
My HPCSA – registration (Health Profession Council of South Africa) as registered dietitian, requires me to keep my skills and knowledge up to date through ongoing training.
I am dedicated in my task to help patients achieve better health and I treat every patient with great compassion. I believe that making my patients feel at ease during consultations goes a long way. This is done by creating a relaxed environment where patients can speak freely, treating them with the compasion and the necessary empathy, where needed.
