My Story

Hi there. My name is Georgie and I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and passionate foodie. I grew up in a small town in Cornwall, England but have called Perth my home for the last 12 years. My journey with nutrition and passion for all things food started a long time ago after a visit from a dietitian in year 8 at school. I felt a great sense of comfort at that moment, that I had discovered my ‘calling’ in life. After moving to Australia in 2012, I worked across retail and hospitality until I became an Australian Citizen. From there, I was able to commence the journey to fulfil my childhood dream of becoming a dietitian. Through that journey, my dream developed into a passion to help people feel empowered to make nutrition changes by offering a safe space to have a voice and be heard without judgement.

My journey as a dietitian has also been shaped by my own personal struggles with body image which led me to adopt a weight neutral / Non-Diet Approach in my practice. Having navigated these struggles, I have developed a deep level of compassion for others and understand the importance of creating an environment free of judgement and shame. I strive to empower people in their own personal nutrition journeys, placing them at the centre of our work together and consider their lived experiences, neurotype, values and individual goals.

In terms of other areas of expertise, I have experience in nutrition for chronic conditions, including PCOS, high cholesterol, fatty liver, chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetes. Since having my son in 2022 and facing the many challenges of introducing solids, I developed an interest in paediatric nutrition. Other areas of interest include; food intolerances and allergies, including the Low FODMAP Diet and other digestive issues. 

In my spare time, you will find me chasing my little boy on his bike, cooking Thai food, getting out in nature for a coast walk or sitting on the beach and listening to Mythos by Stephen Fry.

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This would have to be a Cornish pasty, specifically from the bakery in my home town, Philips I love them so much that last time I visited Cornwall, I ate one every day to nourish my soul.
