Optimum sports performance involves more than general healthy eating.  Sports nutrition is a complex science that is personalised to assist you to achieve your athletic goals.  I love to work with anyone who is motivated to create healthy changes that fuel their body and align with their training and performance needs. Whether you are an emerging athlete, self-proclamed weekend warrior, age-group athlete, training to complete your first triathlon or marathon, or an advancced athlete competing at a professional/elite level, I look forward to working with you to tailor a nutritional plan that will complement and enhance your training and performance.

 

Working with a sports dietitian can take away the guesswork and confusion, and provide clear guidelines and practical strategies to help you acheive your sporting or exercise goals, while also optimising your long-term health.

Medicare Rebate, DVA & NDIS

We accept GP referrals for Chronic Disease Management.

This is a government funded program in which you are eligible for a Medicare rebate for a maximum of 5 Allied Health Services (including Dietetics) each year to support the medical management of a chronic condition.

The current Medicare rebate is $58.30, meaning Medicare will cover $58.30 of your appointment fee; you will only be required to pay the remaining gap.

To organise a care plan, please speak with your regular GP to discuss.

We accept a DVA Gold Card or White Card (condition specific). 

If you hold a DVA Gold Card or a White Card (condition specific) then you can access dietitian support from Athletic Dietetics with a D904 referral from your GP.

Once you obtain the D904 referral get in contact to make an appointment.  All Veterans with an eligible D904 can book our private consults and are bulk billed. 

We accept clients who have an NDIS funding for dietetic included in their management plan. NDIS participants can book our private consults and are bulk billed.
