Associate Herbal Practitioners


and I'm here to help you on your path to optimal health. I have a passion for prevention and strive to seek the underlying cause of illness such as stress, diet, toxins and environmental factors.

I've been in the medical profession for over 20 years, and have seen it all in my career as an international registered nurse. It was working with skin, coupled with my own experiences as an eczema sufferer in childhood, that lead me to niche in this area and obtain my Bachelor of Naturopathy. I also uncovered an immense passion for treating acne through helping my own family members with severe acne. There is nothing the (skin) world needs more than an integrative and sustainable long-term approach when it comes to chronic conditions like acne and eczema.

I have treated thousands of patients in my career, but working with skin and hormones (PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid, stress and anxiety)  gives me (and you) the greatest reward.

With a broad professional background, I use my 20+ years of clinical knowledge and experience combined with a functional medicine approach to identify the drivers of problem skin and devise a plan to heal, restore and nourish the skin from within.

I adore working with all types of skin issues, and all types of bodies they present in, whether that's a little bub red with eczema or a mature-age woman dealing with post-menopausal acne changes or a person with psoriasis.

My inside out approach helps you wherever you're at.

I have trained exclusively with a world-renowned integrative dermatologist to be able to expand my topical approach to suit different severities of skin presentation. This unique ability allows me to adjust your topicals to treat even the most sensitive, inflamed skin which is imperative when working with inflammatory conditions like eczema.

I know the reality of topical steroid withdrawal, and topical steroid management of eczema and all the complexities that can bring up, as I went through all of these problems as a child. This is also why I’m so passionate about there being more integrative and effective options, that aren’t harmful but are restorative to the skin.

Motivated by real results, I work diligently and tirelessly to ensure my treatments are personalised, efficient and long-lasting so that you can finally feel at home in your skin.

I work with a variety of tools to achieve this, including nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle guidance and recommendations, functional testing where applicable, and a variety of custom-blended topical items.

As part of the team, I am forever a student of skin science and integrative health. When I don't have my head in books or the newest research, you can find me playing badminton, swimming and hanging out at the beach or hiking and excitedly planning my next international move from NZ.
