More about Emma ...

Kia Ora! My name is Emma McMichael, I am a Registered Dietitian & Sports Dietitian.
My passion for food, health, sports and helping people is what lead me down the track of becoming a Dietitian that specialises in sports nutrition.

I completed my BSc Human Nutrition at Otago University in 2008 and then in 2010 completed my Post-Graduate Diploma in Dietetics in Wellington. I lived in Wellington for 5 years, met my husband there. I worked as a Dietitian in Wellington and Porirua Hospitals providing nutrition advice for people with diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular health, diabetes in pregnancy, malnutrition, weight management, IBS, food intolerances & gut health issues. In 2013 I trained as a sports Dietitian and set up my private practice Focus On Food. We moved to Tauranga in 2014 as we have two little kiddies and enjoy the Bay of Plenty lifestyle and the grandparenting help!

I believe there is no 'one size fits all' approach to nutrition and I'm definitely no fan of fad diets. My approach to helping clients make dietary change involves working with what they feel is initially doable and then building better dietary habits from there on.

I love spending time with my family & friends, being outdoors and enjoy tramping, camping, playing touch rugby and tennis.
