I grew up in Christchurch and have recently returned home after more than 10 years living around New Zealand and abroad. I have worked in London and Auckland in a variety of settings giving me the skills to work with you whatever your needs.

I am a home cook who is passionate about eating, living a healthy sustainable lifestyle, and sharing that knowledge with others. I have three young kids and enjoy experimenting with kid-friendly recipes packed with veggies and watching them explore. I have been interested in healthy eating from a young age which was fostered by the sustainable lifestyle I grew up in. I have also trained as a yoga teacher which I feel has only further benefited my role as a nutritionist.

I have a strong passion for fertility, pregnancy and women's health (such as PCOS and Endometriosis) and I am a certified fertility and pregnancy dietitian as well.

"Ellie was very friendly and approachable - she listened to my concerns and what I wanted from the meeting. I didn't feel like I was being judged a single ounce, which I was a bit concerned about as I didn't know what to expect. This was my first contact with a Dietitian and overall the whole experience so far has exceeded my expectations and I'm glad I finally made the appointment after putting it off for so long. Ellie offered great information which is easy to implement and I look forward to catching up with her again.Jess

"I really enjoyed my consultation, it felt very in-depth and helpful. Ellie was fantastic - I really felt listened to and understood, and got good advice." Gabriela

 

"Thank you so much for your help and for helping me create a great plan. I feel very confident in going ahead and I am super excited. I just made a delish Instagram worthy breakfast bowl and stir-fried veg lunch and felt so satisfied after. The portion control tips you gave me were so helpful and I'm excited to play around with many different types of foods and not limit myself anymore!" Lauren 

 

"Thanks so much for your time today and for your encouragement. I left feeling so much better than I walked in." Cath

 

"I am really happy with my progress and advice received to date. Thanks again for your help it has been great and overall, I have lost 7.5kgs and helped a lot with my symptoms!" Sarah

 

"Working with Ellie really helped change my mentality on food and gave me a much healthier approach to eating and diet in general. I truly believe the work with Ellie had a huge impact in helping us finally achieve a successful pregnancy. There were so many things regarding our diets and lifestyle choices that were having a negative affect on our fertility, and making those changes not only helped us feel better physically but also mentally. Ellie was excellent at guiding us to make healthy changes without ever feeling condescending or judgemental. I would highly recommend Ellie." Gaby
