Dietitian Carole Richards
I have been a dietitian for more than 30 years and remain fascinated by the role that diet can play in our overall health.
After graduating from Deakin and Sydney Universities, I worked at various hospitals in the ACT, Diabetes ACT, University of Canberra and in private practice. I also completed post graduate study in Sports Nutrition and Diabetes Management. In 2011, I moved to the Eurobodalla seeking a life closer to the sea and without Canberra winters.
Working with the QSMC team is a privilege. I enjoy being involved with clients as they make incremental diet and lifestyle adjustments to maximise their health. In particular for the prevention and management of Type 2 Diabetes. The QSMC Exercise & Diet Diabetes Group, currently in remission, has been a wonderful project that I hope can be started again later in 2020.
My special interests include treatment of Diabetes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticular Disease, FODMAP sensitivity, Osteoporosis, weight management, heart conditions and healthy eating at all stages of life.
In my spare time, I am a mother of 4, step mother of 4 and grandmother of 7 and partner of Graham. I love cooking healthy meals for friends and extended family, experimenting with new recipes, growing vegetables, keeping fit, sewing and singing.
