Hilda graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics with Honours from Monash University. Since then she has worked in clinics all across Melbourne, and has helped many patients from various ages and cultural backgrounds in improving their diet, health and wellbeing.
Hilda specialises in weight management and diabetes. Her interest in food in weight management stems from personal experience struggling with her weight since childhood. Since becoming a dietitian, she has found the balance in enjoying physical health, whilst still being able to enjoy her favourite foods and the social aspect of food. She is passionate about using her own past experiences, combined with her extensive training, work experience and the latest scientific evidence to assist her patients to have a healthy lifestyle without restriction and guilt.
Hilda’s interest in diabetes developed from volunteering at Diabetes Victoria camps for participants with Type 1 Diabetes, and from working with endocrinologists and diabetes educators in this area.
Hilda is also able to consult in Cantonese and Mandarin.
Outside of work, Hilda enjoys sitting down with a good coffee and a book, doing weights training at the gym and volunteering in her local community.
