Hello! I’m Alexandria (but you can call me Alex) an accredited practicing dietitian, nutritionist and sports dietitian. I like to consider myself as being quite the people person. I know that for some of you coming to see a dietitian might be quite a scary or overwhelming experience but I’m here to tell you that my office is a relaxed and non-judgemental environment, we might even have a laugh!
I love working with young athletes (individual and team based), helping them to understand the fundamentals of sports nutrition and how they can best fuel their bodies as well as improve their performance. Growing up I played a netball, so have a lot experience in this area but I do work with athletes from other sports as well; swimming, soccer, rugby league and dancing just to name a few. I have completed extra training in the eating disorder space but it is also a strong passion of mine, helping people through the treatment of an eating disorder; Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder including, helping to repair disordered eating habits and improving body image.
I believe that all foods deserve a place in your life and no foods should be avoided (unless you have an allergy or intolerance) or labelled as ‘bad’. I have had a negative relationship with food and my body in the past, I understand that this can be exhausting and I hope that I am the person that can help turn your relationship with food and your body around. Collectively here at Eat Smart Nutrition our motto is ‘Real Life Results’. I want exactly that for each and every one of my patients, results that are real, for you and that fit into your lifestyle – there really is nothing more rewarding.
