Katherine’s passion for sports nutrition stems from her personal involvement in endurance events including Ironman, marathon and ultra-marathon races. After a few years of experimenting with CrossFit, she found her way back to her passion for anything long distance by taking up marathon swimming.
Katherine prides herself on helping all people, not just athletes, optimize their health via personalised, practical and achievable nutrition advice. She can help athletes identify fact from fiction, and adopt cutting edge, evidence based nutrition strategies to achieve peak performance. She loves assisting athletes with food sensitivities/intolerances and has a strong interest working with people (and athletes) with eating disorders.
Katherine is known for her gentle patient centred approach and enjoys working collaborative with individuals and athletes of all ages. Along with individual consultations, Katherine regularly runs group based nutrition seminars with local sporting clubs and teams.
Katherine continues to consult at OPSMC campuses in East Melbourne and at AAMI Park but is also now available for appointments at our Geelong Campus.
