Sports Nutritionists

Sally Anderson - Advanced Sports Dietician and Exercise Physiologist at QSMC

Advanced Sports Dietician and Exercise Physiologist, Level 1 Anthropometrist

Sally loves her work as a dietitian, and will go to great lengths to help her clients achieve their goals. Sally’s interest in sports nutrition began when she was competing nationally as a lightweight rower; as ‘weight-category’ athletes will testify, meticulous attention to food is necessary to achieve a goal weight. As a result, Sally has first-hand experience & empathy for the challenges that face her athletes & weight management clients.

Rowing was replaced with a love of triathlons (an easy transition given the high volume of cross-training required for rowing), and triathlon – along with the individual disciplines – have become her favoured sports ever since. To balance out the endurance tendencies though, you’ll also find her spending a good amount of time on a gym floor lifting heavy things.

Sally’s dietetic career began in research, completing an honours thesis on ‘Caffeine use in elite athletes’ in 2005. Following this, she tied her dietetics & exercise science degrees together with the Sports Nutrition Course at the Australian Institute of Sport, and then began consulting to various sporting & personal training groups around Brisbane, as well as working for some years at a weight management clinic.

Following this, she spent a year travelling overseas, which sparked an interest in eating for longevity & health. Since then, Sally has grown Apple To Zucchini to service more clients, while still retaining the individualised aspect of nutrition planning – no two meal plans will ever look the same from an Apple to Zucchini dietitian! Sally is currently aiming to perfect the life of a working Mum; her little man Sam, and youngest Abigail are never far from her mind.

Accredited Practising & Sports Dietician, Level 1 Anthropometrist

Training has always been a huge part of Kirrily’s life, growing up she competed in track & field athletics, representing her small school at State titles from age 11-18. This led on to an interest in Olympic distance triathlon, and sparked her curiosity for getting nutrition right for both training and race days. Currently, Kirrily actively competes in a number of bike racing events throughout the year with the Data #3 women’s cycling team, including the National Road Series.

Being a Personal Trainer over a decade now, Kirrily is not only passionate about health and fitness, but strives for being the best version of herself, inside and out. Looking for a more holistic approach with her clients, she decided a Nutrition and Dietetics degree would do the trick!

With a passion for sports and nutrition, Kirrily had a clear view through years of study that she wanted a career as a sports dietitian – and jumped at any opportunity to volunteer to learn what it was all about.

Accredited Practising & Sports Dietician, Level 1 Antrhopometrist

Melanie is an experienced sports dietitian with a passion for fitness and a love for helping her clients achieve their health and sporting-related goals. Mel’s interest in sports nutrition began as a young athlete, training and competing in swimming and track & field events; with an innate motivation to do well, Mel pushed an intense training regime, but quickly found her performances declined with constant fatigue and under-recovery. She inadvertently lost weight, and at this point was referred to a dietitian for fuelling advice. This interaction sparked an appreciation for the impactful role nutrition plays in wellness as well as on the sporting field. As a result, Mel understands the often-confronting process of initiating dietary change and holds this consideration when advising her athletes and clients.

Melanie’s dietetic career began within the clinical space at Cairns Hospital, supporting patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as well as patients in surgical and rehabilitation wards. Working closely with these patients created a solid foundation for client-centred care, and a philosophy of levering nutrition to optimise outcomes. From here, Mel put this this approach to work in her passion space of sports nutrition, with the NSW Rugby Waratahs and St George Illawarra Dragons. In clinics across Sydney, Mel has consulted privately to a wide range of athletes including cyclists, triathletes, fighters (boxing, MMA), and ultra-endurance runners, as well as to those with health, fitness, physique-related goals. 

Outside the cosy private practice room walls, Mel is a qualified personal trainer, and loves nothing more than working up a sweat teaching group fitness classes, and personally trains and competes as a bodybuilder. Mel understands first-hand the strategic nutrition planning (and execution!) required to manage high training volumes, while not only protecting but building upon lean muscle mass and strength gains. Mel’s experience in the fitness space affords her regular reminders that each athlete will have their own unique path, best supported by individualised nutrition prescription. Mel goes above and beyond for each of her clients, being their educator, wellbeing advocate and goal-focused practitioner.

SPORTS PSYCHOLOGISTS

Psychologist
BA (Psych) (Hons), MPsych (Sport & Exercise)

Matt’s history working as a psychologist with Mental Notes began in 2006. His passion for working with competitive people who want to achieve something more has seen him develop performance enhancement programs and strategies for individuals and teams.

He completed a Master of Psychology (Sport & Exercise) at The University of Queensland. He is registered as a Psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia. Matt is passionate about performance with more than 15 years’ experience working with elite athletes and leaders in the corporate sector. Matt’s approach is to help people see what success looks like and to understand what they need to do to achieve it. This understanding and ownership of outcome is the foundation of achieving results whether on the field or at work.

Matt has a practical approach which helps his clients understand the whole performance picture from the physical, technical, tactical, and mental perspectives. They come away with a clear understanding of what it takes for them to drive themselves to achieve great results.

Over the last five years, Matt has continued to build on his considerable experience improving people performance in the corporate sector by working with leaders and teams in areas of learning and development, organisational development, change management, and creating cultures of growth and success. Matt has worked with groups to develop and implement leadership development programs at different levels of organisations. The SME space is one that Matt is particularly drawn to as it gives him the chance to work with people who want to achieve but are also willing to take ownership of the pathway to success.

Matt works with teams and individuals and can facilitate both face-to-face and remote consultations. He draws on his experience working with elite athletes to help his clients understand their peak performance factors and to learn the psychological skills to perform at their peak more consistently.
