Jan completed her naturopathic nutritional medicine qualifications at Nature Care College in Sydney in 1996, and has been in practice since that time, first in a busy Sydney practice and in Perth since 2002.
Jan’s passion for nutrition started during her first career as a home economist, where she did cooking demonstrations, recipe and product development and teaching. This included working in the Australian Women’s Weekly Test Kitchen for six years as an editor of cookbooks.

As an experienced nutritionist, ‘foodie’ and accomplished recipe developer, Jan has authored eight books on cooking, meditation and natural health. Her latest two books have won international awards. The Eat Well Cookbook, a fabulous gluten-free and dairy-free book, followed fast on the heels of The Detox Cookbook, which is an essential guide to doing a detox well with delicious recipes.
