Hi, my name is Tracy. I am a Gamilaroi woman, an Accredited Nutritionist/Practising Dietitian, certified and licenced Wayapa® Wuurrk Practitioner, Diploma Qualified Beauty Therapist and Founder of Wattleseed Nutrition, Health & Wellbeing, a 100% Indigenous owned and operated business based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
I take a personalised, holistic and culturally-centred approach to food, food environments, meal patterns, eating habits, health and wellbeing. I have a particular interest in the importance of gut health, traditional foods (aka bushfoods) and therapies and their role in nutritional and total health and wellbeing.
I believe (and evidence supports), empowerment has powerful and positive effects on our self-esteem and our capacity to self-determine our individual, family and community health and wellbeing. I view health through a strengths-based, holistic and cultural lens, focussing on connections, healing conversations and sustainable strategies.
Having a curiosity and openness to different world views, I work to support and partner in facilitating improvements in the health and well-being.
I am here to create a safe and empowering space of connection, healing and sustainability for you, your family, your community, your group, your business, your organisation, your university and/or your school.
"To us, health is about so much more than simply not being sick. It's about getting a balance between physical, mental, emotional, cultural and spiritual health. Health and healing are interwoven, which means that one can't be separated from the other."
–– Dr Tamara Mackean
Hi, my name is Tracy, I'm one of the very few dietitians who identifies as First Nations Person of Australia. I view health and wellbeing through a cultural, holistic and self-determined lens. I truly believe in the strength and healing power of sustaining our connections to traditional foods, lands, and cultural practices. I believe through sharing knowledge we foster understanding and grow stronger in self, mind, body and spirit.
