ABOUT MONICA

Hi, I am Monica Divine, Founder of Mandurah Nutrition and Dietetics. 

Monica Divine has been involved with Dietetics  and Nutrition from the age of 18 and has worked as a Dietitian for over 29 years. Monica began her career working in her birth country of Portugal before studying at the prestigious King's College, London. Monica graduated from King's College in 2001 and began working for the National Health Service in the UK (extensive experience within hospitals and community field). 

Monica has worked as a Senior Dietitian in several well-renowned UK teaching hospitals, including the world famous Royal Marsden Oncology Hospital. This role facilitated her appointment as the Principal Oncology Dietitian at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. Monica remained in this role from 2008 to 2015, with several short-term secondments at King Edwards Memorial Hospital (Gestational Diabetes/Women's Health), Rockingham General Hospital (Mental Health), and the child Disability Service in west Perth (Child Nutrition). 

I am also working within the WA NDIS dietetic Services for Rockingham and Peel Region.  

Monica has also worked in private clinics in London and Perth, and has been employed in a consultative capacity with several catering companies and  nursing homes.

My special interest are in the areas of Cancer, Gut Health, Bariatric surgery, Eating Disorders, Sport Nutrition,  child/adult obesity expertise and Age Care.

I am also a busy mum and I enjoy the challenging of balancing my work and family life. As a mum of two I had the opportunity to practice my own advice such as managing child and infant nutrition like fussy eating, healthy eating (prevent child obesity and later onset of chronic diseases) and eating or feeding difficulties. I combine my love with Mediterranean cooking style with regular physical activity, both kayak in the Mandurah canals and swimming. Also I am a great believer of the Yoga, Pilates and Tai chi practises - great for your mind and body balance.
