Hi, I’m Issy, an Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Nutritionist who is passionate about allergies and intolerances here at Eat Smart.

Food has always been a huge part of my life. I come from a large Italian family and every social event involves everyone surrounding a table, covered in delicious food, all create with love!  I love creating food, I love talking about food and most of all, eating food!

Growing up, I enjoyed many sports from volleyball, swimming to dancing. I started dancing at the age of 5 and I still dance today! I believe that dancing gave me the confidence to perform and to be a ‘quietly confident’ person. Because of dancing, I feel comfortable presenting nutrition education sessions to large audiences and I am always up for a chat.

In high school, I had to see a dietitian as I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (also known as IBS). She helped me get out of the abdominal pain I was suffering and gave me my life back through a food first approach. This dietitian inspired me so much that I became a dietitian myself!

Since then, I have upskilled in medical nutritional therapy for food allergy and intolerance created by ASCIA and have successfully completed the Monash Low FODMAP Dietitian Course. Now I am wanting to share my knowledge and help those who are also struggling with gut health issues. I understand that gut health symptoms can be embarrassing, but please know I have heard it all and experienced it all myself. There is no judgement in my office!

I am a strong believer of building a healthy relationship with food and improving everyone’s quality of life through nutrition and exercise. Please know I will work with you to create and achieve sustainable nutrition related goals.
