Kerry has been a dietitian for 15 years, after graduating and first gained a broad clinical experience in various hospitals.
For the last 12 years I have been working with Holly Frail in what is now Eat Smart Nutrition Consultants where I have widened my experience in dietetics even further.
My interest in food and nutrition, especially in the sporting area started as an aspiring elite netball player at the Australian Institute of Sport. Despite not reaching my goals in netball I have found my niche helping people, including athletes, to reach their goals with a healthy diet. I have now been working with the Australian Netball team for the past 10 years.
As well as my experience in private practice treating a wide variety of clinical conditions, during the past four years I have been the Nutrition Coordinator for the Qld Academy of Sport. At the QAS I also consult with the swimming, softball and women’s football teams as well as a wide variety of individual athletes. I also consult with the AIS Squash unit that is based in Brisbane, and am also an active member of Sports Dietitians Australia.
I also regularly lecture to athletes, coaches and the general public on both nutrition for a healthy lifestyle and sports nutrition. I am also a regular lecturer at the Qld Dental School to dentists and oral hygienists on providing nutrition information to their clients.
As I now have three children I have an interest in helping all members of families to eat well and stay sane at the same time. I find I stay fit and healthy by including regular social sport into my weekly schedule with netball, basketball and tennis being my main fixtures.
Finally, my passion is food and cooking and I love to find ways to make food a healthy and tasty part of everyday living.
