Jessie joined the NEMQ team in 2015 in an administrative capacity and enjoyed working and learning in the busy, vibrant clinic environment while completing a Bachelor degree in Health Science (Nutritional Medicine). Jessie joined the Clinical Services team in 2018 as a Nutritionist and now divides her time between clinical, reception and senior administration roles.
As a degree-qualified Nutritionist, Jessie practices evidence-based holistic nutritional medicine. Jessie’s qualifications equip her with knowledge in anatomy, physiology, pathology and nutritional biochemistry which underpins clinical decision-making, guides professional advice and drives the results that patients can experience. The added holistic element of her practice means that a patient’s unique mental, emotional and physical circumstances or beliefs are considered with respect to how they contribute to overall health.
Patients are likely to first interact with Jessie in her capacity as a Receptionist. With a genuine care for NEMQ patients, she aims to be as helpful as possible to ensure that patients feel welcome and have a positive experience when contacting or visiting the clinic. She also works closely with the team of receptionists to ensure that both clinic processes run smoothly and that a high level of patient care is provided. Another of her roles in the clinic is provide services to NEMQ’s Doctors and their patients to assist with implementing their management plans. Patients may encounter Jessie if they are commencing nutrient therapy for the first time, have questions about their management plan, undertake one of the clinic’s testing services or require in-depth dietary advice to support them to achieve their health goals.
Jessie is available for private consultations to assist patients with nutrition and lifestyle changes to help them take steps to overcome personal challenges and navigate the path to living a healthier life.
