Hi there my name is Elissa and  I heart food.  Not in the, bigger is better- quantity over quality way, but in the; food is magical kinda way, you know?

Lets get the credentials out of the way so you know I’m  legit;   Im a qualified Nutritionist and Food Coach (Bachelor Degree in Health Science- Nutritional Medicine), Dip. Fitness Therapist, , Personal Trainer and Masseuse and I am currently studying Energetic Food Medicine for the heck of it.

Work Stuff; I am currently the Australian and New Zealand Innovation Product Manager for the number one supplement company in Australia.  Which means I help develop and formulate new supplements.  This is a very exciting fast pace role that leasts me see lots of new research and technology come through so we can help assist with peoples various health conditions and hopefully help them achieve a bit more quality of life.  Or just get more out of life.

I am also a Food Coach.  I do most of this work one-on-one with clients, whether in person or via Skype.  In these sessions I help to re-educate peoples beliefs around foods, diets and produce.  I help them make smarter choices for themselves, their families and the planet. We have been given a lot of under and poorly-researched, out of date information that is now starting to become de-bunked.  (Fat Free Revolution anyone?) I have been looking into this for many years and have been able to realign my clients eating habits and food beliefs. This lets them begin to feel freed from the old fashion ‘calorie counting’ and ‘exercising like demons’ theory so they can simply enjoy their life and feel a sense of freedom that my plans helps them achieve.  Its so great to see that sense of relief and relaxed approach they have towards their food.  And how they make changes within their household and the follow on from that.

I am beginning my own revolution;  Back to Wholefoods and re-gain our health.  Im also here to answer any questions you might have so please send anything through.


Until then, here’s to a Happy Wholefood existence!

      Hello Gab.

      Apology for the late reply i’ve been travelling interstate for work.

      Yes I do consultations either in person or via Skype, depending on location and mutual availability. Are you interested in discussing anything in particular about your personal health or health topic i.e. food coaching?

      happy to chat more with you. I look forward to your reply.

      warm regards

        I would love to help you out more if you need. I’m currently travelling through Sth east Asia until early feb (paleo here is somewhat challenging!) however if you need any questions answered I can do via email or if you like I can make time for a chat when I return back to Australia? Let me know what suits you best.

        Thx Elissa
