I have co-founded The Authentic Professional, a community where we can come together to have real conversations about what it means to be an authentic leader, explore the complex issues around workplace culture and start the journey to become the change we want to see. I invite you to reflect on your life and see if this is something you are interested in. If so please follow The Authentic Professional Facebook page (above) and if you are in the Brisbane area (or willing to visit!) please come to our inaugural meeting The Authentic Professional 1.0 (link below).
🔥🔥🔥MY CAREER TO DATE
I'm a world leading nutrition and dietetics academic, an Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutritionist and Health and Wellness Coach. I'm currently a Professor of Nutrition and Dietetics at Bond University and founder of LINC Nutrition. I'm passionate about helping corporate women and those in leadership positions gain more TIME & ENERGY with less STRESS & BURNOUT to live a life they truly LOVE!! This has evolved after 20 years of climbing the Higher Education corporate ladder only to discover that my life was not aligned to my strengths and values. After a year of re-aligning my life and working on my health I am now living a life I LOVE and want to inspire others (and be their permission slip) to do the same!
🔥🔥🔥🔥QUALS, EXPERTISE & SCIENCEY STUFF
After gaining a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics with First Class Honours I worked in several of Australia's leading hospitals and universities. I then completed a PhD in nutrition for people living with cancer which has been the benchmark of nutrition services in radiation oncology. Individually, and with my students, I have won numerous research and teaching awards. I have published over 140 peer-reviewed articles, 10 textbook chapters and several leading evidence-based guidelines which have been used internationally to guide the nutritional management of hundreds of thousands of patients for best patient care. I have a H index of 30, almost 4000 citations and have received over 3 million dollars in research funding. I'm currently Chief Investigator on a Cancer Council-funded grant investigating the impact of ginger on chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting and I hold other grants in the area of assessing the outcomes following bariatric surgery and the benefits of telehealth for older adults following rehabilitation.
Until 4 months ago when I started LINC Nutrition, I was Head of Program for the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program and Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University. During this time, I developed an accredited program of excellence achieving the mission of Producing Dietitians with a Difference who Make a Difference. I have led the development of a certified online nutrition training program for GP’s with HealthCert, taught the next generation of nutrition leaders and graduated 5 PhD scholars.
I am currently the Chair of the Nutrition and Cachexia study group for the Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and will lead the nutrition section at the MASCC conference held in Spain in 2020. I was a founding board member for the Maggie Beer Foundation and the Lantern Project and have been the Chair of the Research and Scientific committee for AuSPEN, Nutrition Editor for Current Oncology and Associate Editor for Nutrition and Dietetics. I am currently on the SkillsIQ national committee for improving the meal time experience in aged care, COSA Malnutrition and Sarcopenia Position Statement committee and the Scientific Board of Dietitian Connection. I have chaired several conferences and led many plenary and keynote presentations at international and national conferences and invited industry events as well as chairing and participating in panel discussions and debates.
I have had the pleasure (and challenge!) of leading high performance teams and being in senior academic positions while raising 2 children. I have a strong personal interest in managing stress and preventing burnout through selfcare, boundary setting and the link between food and mood. I have found the coaching methodology very useful for this and was inspired to start my own wellness coaching business as a way of helping other high achievers to prioritise their lives for greater joy and values alignment. I focus on mindset & healthy habit formation, personalised nutrition and enjoyable movement.
As you can see my career has led me to this journey of co-founding The Authentic Professionals where we come together to have real conversations about what it means to be an authentic leader, explore the complex issues around workplace culture and start the journey to become the change we want to see. All while having a bloody good time with amazing people!! We'd love for you to become a part of this community and step into your true leadership!
