There is nothing Jess loves more than helping people solve their health confusion.

Nutrition is as simple as getting the right nutrients for your body’s needs, but with so much conflicting information and fads it’s hard to know what to do.

That’s why Jess’ approach is to strip it all back – simplifying nutrition and making it easy to understand and apply. Her recommendations are always evidence-based and inspired by nature, because nature rarely gets it wrong.

Her passion for helping others learn to nourish their body, began with her own health issues. Through this experience, she discovered that making small tweaks to your lifestyle can have a huge impact on your health.

As Mum of two this passion has magnified, as what our little ones eat can set up their development for the rest of their life. 

A self-confessed health nerd, Jess is always trawling research and health literature, adding to her ten plus year’s of experience. She believes each person is different and has unique needs, so customises each plan to your individual goals and lifestyle.

If you want to have your own “a’ha” health moment, or simply feel like you’re your best you, talk to Jess.
