Hi I’m Cindy,
I’m the first point of contact you’ll see at Dietwise with a big smile to make you feel welcome and safe. I’m currently enjoying my gap year from my studies working full-time at Dietwise and hope to be enrolling in the Masters of Dietetics at Curtin University soon.
I have a Vietnamese background and am very proud to be brought up in a food culture where food for me represents the 3C’s – celebrations, connectedness, and comfort! I believe food is more than just nutrients because the joyful emotions and memories that come with food is what connects us as humans.
My passion for nourishment, movement and belonging to a work environment like Dietwise is so inspiring to me where the needs of patients are approached with a holistic lens, promoting health using the Health At Every Size® (HAES ®) framework, and commitment to providing a warm, nurturing space to feel comfortable. Dietwise ticks all the boxes for me. I am also a volunteer blog writer for Eating Disorder Families Australia (EDFA) being passionate about the Non-Diet Approach and eating disorder recovery, using my lived experience to ensure that parents and carers are not alone in navigating the complex system of eating disorder treatment.
In my free time, I enjoy immersing myself in realism art, mainly human portraits, and acrylic painting with pop art influences.
