State Registered Dietitian & Nutritionist
Michelle is a state registered dietitian, nutritionist, and member of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute, the professional body for dietitians in Ireland. She is a first-class honours graduate of Trinity College Dublin & Dublin Institute of Technology, and also holds an honours BSc in Finance from University College Cork. As part of her four years at university studying nutrition, she successfully completed challenging placements in St James Hospital Dublin, South Infirmary-Victoria University Hospital Cork, and The Mercy University Hospital Cork. Through her hospital placements, she has gained experience in many fields including general medicine, diabetes, oncology, upper and lower gastrointestinal surgery, and cardiology. Michelle completed a research thesis in the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital Dublin, which investigated the link between socio-economic status and diet in pregnant women.
Since graduating as a dietitian in 2013, she has worked in an acute hospital, nursing homes, private practice and in corporate wellness, and joined Cork Nutrition in April 2015. She has a keen interest in working with patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Coeliac disease, gut disorders, and weight management issues, and is passionate about providing practical methods of lifestyle change to her patients. She believes that nutrition has a major role in not only extending the length of an individual’s life but also greatly improving the quality of that life.
Michelle loves to cook! She is interested in all types of recipes and foods but her personal favourite has to be Thai food following a month spent travelling around that beautiful country many years ago. She also loves getting outdoors and plays tag rugby, hikes and cycles in her free time.
