Shaping Australia's Leading Sportspeople

Simone’s passion for nutrition has led her to work with some of Australia’s most prominent professional sports teams. She has earned trust and respect in the AFL, cricket and rugby arenas by keeping players in top form. Her successes include:

  • Hawthorn Football Club (three premierships)
  • The Australian Cricket Team (two World Cups and an Ashes Series)
  • Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club (four seasons and a premiership win)
  • Melbourne City A-League Football Club
  • Melbourne Rebels Rugby Union Club
  • Western Bulldogs Football club (six seasons)

Equipping players with nutrition understanding

Simone prides herself on a firm but fair approach as she introduces a nutrition philosophy that will become habits for life (and when she isn’t there to supervise players!) Simone knows how to read the play of what’s happening at clubs as a whole, and with the individual players themselves.


Simone conducts individual consultations and group sessions for:

  • nutrition knowledge assessments
  • simple cooking classes and understanding food labels
  • match day nutrition education
  • eating well while travelling and dining out
  • maximising the immune system
  • measuring body composition (skinfold measurements)

Swinburne University Dietetics Programme

Simone came and presented a nutritional seminar to our developing and elite level swimmers, the talk was really engaging full of great anecdotes and useful tips. All our swimmers and parents walked away with quality, realistic advice that even the busiest of households could follow. We are looking forward to running other workshops in the future!

I have just listened to your Fad Diets Webinar via Education in Nutrition.  I wanted to email you to say, that was fantastic.

Whist I gained a lot from the information, one of the things that really registered was your added bit at the end re confidence in ourselves.
