Why did you choose HPN?
After completing my Diploma in Nutritional Science, I felt like I still had more learning to do. When I came across HPN and what it had to offer I was super excited to be able to continue on my path of study. It offered what was most important to me, holistic nutrition. The industry experience and knowledge that the HPN staff have is also another huge bonus. Im looking forward to working on the next phase of learning through HPN.
Would you recommend the HPN course to others? Why/ Why not?
I do recommend HPN! For anyone who has a passion for Nutrition, and for my colleagues or are already Clinical Nutritionists, I recommend that they try HPN not only for the learning but the support network it offers which to me has been valuable in the day to day running of my own clinic.
Describe your ultimate day off
My ultimate day off involves a long walk in the port hills of Christchurch. I love getting to the top and sitting and looking over this amazing city I call home.
What's next for you in the nutrition and health field?
I want to continue learning through HPN. Im slowly growing my clinical practice at a pace that works in with my family.
