Sarah is an accredited Clinical Dietitian with 13 years’ experience working in a variety of clinical areas within the public and private health sectors in Bundaberg, Cairns and on the Sunshine Coast, with many of those years working in oncology and palliative care where her special interest lies.
Sarah was appointed to the role of Senior Dietitian for Cancer Services at Nambour General Hospital in 2007 and is currently Project Manager exploring alternative patient-centred model of care. Her passion for providing high quality, evidence based nutritional therapy for cancer patients was strengthened through a Cancer Council Study and Travel grant, which has led to her active involvement in planning and development of dietetics services on the sunshine coast.
Sarah enjoys working in a team environment and appreciates the value this brings to patient care. She draws on evidence-based nutrition science as the foundation of her consultations, incorporating this into the provision of practical nutrition advice aimed at managing symptoms and improving the quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer.
