A bit about me…
Matt has a Master of Dietetics from Bond University and recently moved back to the Gold Coast after spending time working in the tropics of far North Queensland. He is an easy going friendly Tasmanian bred Queenslander. Matt strives to empower individuals to take control of their own health through collectively developing tailored nutrition support. Outside of work Matt is constantly on the go living an active lifestyle, surfing, playing sport and exploring the wilderness via foot or mountain bike.
“I enjoy helping people to develop a more balanced and healthy relationship with food. I take a non-judgemental and gentle approach so that people can progress at their own pace. I avoid using a ‘one size fits all approach’ and like to tailor my plans completely to the individual. I really enjoy helping people with chronic diseases. I am happy to bulk-bill clients who have a Chronic Disease Care Plan from their GP so that everyone has an opportunity to see a dietitian regardless of their financial situation. I will also consider if my clients would be suited to join our free lifestyle support program – My Health for Life, for additional and long term support.”
