Your Instructor

Hi there!! My name is Maddie (she/her) and I am a registered Nutritionist, educator and currently studying a masters of occupational therapist. I am the founder of Messy Health which has grown from an Instagram account where I share my tips and tricks on nutrition, intuitive eating, binge eating, and more, to a private practice and online school! I have worked in the Australian and American media as a nutrition advisor, and as a researcher in gut health! I currently work as a clinical nutritionist, food behavior specialist and also working in nutrition research.
Messy Health is a company dedicated to creating an educational space for those working on their mental health, healing their relationship with food, feeling peaceful about their body, and taking back joy and pleasure in their life. Through my journey of developing peace around food and my body, coupled with my education in nutrition, food science, and psychotherapy, I have the knowledge and understanding to help facilitate healing around food, body image, the body, and how they all intersect. I also practice through a feminist, social justice, Health At Every Size lens and hold inclusivity and accessibility as a top priority.
