BSc Dietetic (Hons) (Stell.)
I am a dietitian passionate and vastly experienced in paediatrics and paediatric allergy. I worked in London as a dietitian for 10 years. For 3 years I worked at the Evelina Children’s Hospital (St Thomas’ Hospital) as the Specialist Paediatric Allergy Dietitian with Prof Lack, Dr du Toit, Dr Fox, Dr Brough, Dr Chan and Dr Fhlor. This centre is renowned for studies like the EAT, LEAP and GAP studies conducted there. We did combined gastroallergy clinics with Great Ormond Street Hospital twice a month and daily food challenges on the wards.
I moved to St Georges Hospital (London) for 6 years as a Specialist Paediatric Dietitian to work with Dr Perkin (EAT study) and Dr Christopher and spend half my time on allergy outpatients clinics and challenges and the other half on inpatients including infectious diseases, GIT surgery patients, Neuro, oncology, feeding difficulties and PICU.
I moved back from London to Port Elizabeth in 2017 and worked as the Chief Dietitian, Clinical Coordinator Preceptor at Livingstone Tertiary Hospital for 14 months. My passion lies with babies, children and pregnant woman so I really wanted to get my private practice up and running to return to my passion. I launched my private practice, Happy Healthy Kids, in September 2019 and assess patients both in hospital and as out patients.
I’m HPCSA registered and I’m a member of ALLSA (Allergy Society of South Africa), EAACI (European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology) and BSACI (British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology).
