Olivia Crumpton

NUTRITION & DIETETIC CLINICIAN

There is usually a series of events in our lives that lead us to that very place we are meant to be. The path that gets us there is rarely easy, but everyone has a story.

Myself included.

As a teen, my passion was to become a ballet dancer. A grueling training regime alongside a demand for 'that dancer's physique' saw my body begging for nutrition, yearning for energy. My body was certainly not sustained and my mind chaotically consumed with uncertain and negative thoughts about food.

Years later I entered my career in fashion, yet another industry driven by body image further fuelling my cynical relationship with food, this became a perilous and unsustainable one.

Nine years ago, my beautiful Mum and Dad both got their angel wings. Grief is as heart aching as it is humbling, and it brings with it a darkness that makes us take cherish our precious time here. It is often in certain darkness that we begin to truly see ourselves. What I have taken from this is enlightened respect and appreciation for the body that we have and how we can better nurture and appreciate her and all that she does for us.

Earning my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics, my true heart-led mission is helping others achieve an ongoing healthy and sustainable relationship with food that is the premise of a fulfilling and well-rounded lifestyle.

I wanted to share a bit of my story with you because I understand the vulnerabilities that can come with the desire to make a change to our health.

My approach is personal and based first and foremost on judgment-free understanding. I take a scientific and holistic approach that harnesses the combined power of nutrition, smart eating strategies and exercise. We will work together to create the changes you desire, to fill you with knowledge and build a radiant relationship with food to guide you to health and wellness.

I am so glad you are here.
