Vanessa has more than 20 years experience working as a clinical dietitian in the community hospitals and private practice. Since graduating with a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics from The University of Sydney in 2000, Vanessa has lived and worked in Australia, throughout the United Kingdom, Bangalore and Mumbai in India and worked in private practice in Singapore for the past 14 years.

Vanessa now works with children of all ages, for reasons ranging from selective eating, food allergies, gastrointestinal conditions, growth issues and eating and feeding disorders. She has a special interest in picky eaters, helping those with sensory and other feeding problems to improve their relationship with food and overcome sensory barriers that might impact their nutrient intake. She is trained in Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Therapy and the SOS Approach to Feeding.

 

Vanessa has also developed a keen interest in helping children, adolescents and young adults with eating disorders. She uses her experience and training in motivational interviewing and behaviour change, her practical and non-judgemental approach and her innate empathy and understanding to develop a strong relationship with her clients and help them to gain confidence around food.

Vanessa is on the Executive Committee of the Asthma and Allergy Association (AAA) of Singapore and is member of the Singapore Nutrition and Dietetics Association (SNDA) and Dietitians Australia (DA).

 

She has two young children of her own who help her to understand the challenges involved with feeding children and who are gradually starting to love their food as much as she does!
