Sally loves her work as a dietitian, and will go to great lengths to help her clients achieve their goals. Sally’s interest in sports nutrition began when she was competing nationally as a lightweight rower; as ‘weight-category’ athletes will testify, meticulous attention to food is necessary to achieve a goal weight. As a result, Sally has first-hand experience & empathy for the challenges that face her athletes & weight management clients.

Rowing was replaced with a love of triathlons (an easy transition given the high volume of cross-training required for rowing), and this has been her favoured sport ever since. She now competes in Olympic distance triathlons & half-marathons and will occasionally throw in a half-ironman for good measure.

Her dietetic career began in research, completing an honours thesis on ‘Caffeine use in elite athletes’ in 2005. Following this, she tied her dietetics & exercise science degrees together with the Sports Nutrition Course at the Australian Institute of Sport, and then began consulting to various sporting & personal training groups around Brisbane, as well as working for some years at a weight management clinic.
