Due to her nurturing nature, Madeleine originally studied and became a Registered Nurse. However, her passion for nutrition and how it relates to health motivated her to further her studies in the field of Dietetics and Nutrition. Her interest in managing gut conditions has been further developed following her own experience with IBS, however her passion and principal area of interest now lies in assisting paediatric patients. The field of nutrition science is still emerging, yet Madeleine believes that with new supporting evidence she is able to provide more specific advice to her clients which is both exciting and beneficial.
Being part of a health-care team is an honour and a privilege to Madeleine. Knowing clients and parents feel heard and supported while making dietary changes to improve a health condition, and that she has contributed to someone’s health journey is very rewarding for her. With a friendly, inquisitive and approachable persona, Madeleine’s special interests include assisting children and parents to navigate Coeliac disease and gut health; feeding issues/fussy eating; food allergies and intolerances. She also enjoys giving general nutrition advice on weaning/starting solids and family feeding dynamics.
