BSc Human Nutrition, PgDip Dietetics, MSc (Dist), PhD candidate, NZ Registered Dietitian
I grew up on the west coast of the South Island and during my school years, when I became the national 400m champion my interest in nutrition was sparked. I realised just how important your diet can be when it comes to achieving your peak performance. I went on to complete my Dietetics degree, Masters and now am working towards a PhD in the area of gut health and obesity. Alongside my research roles, I have worked in several different parts of the world in an exciting array of nutrition jobs as well as having many years of experience in private practice. I have a huge passion for working one on one with people to help them to look and feel their best as well as overcome any health challenges they are facing!
Outside of work, I love to unwind in the outdoors, running, tramping or skiing and spending time with friends and family.

"Jo made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. Made me feel I was in good hands and I would come back to her for other issues in the future for sure." Kirsten Hunn
