Rima also has a keen interest in the dietary management of many gastrointestinal related conditions, including the low fodmap diet and the low food chemical diet for IBS, and she brings to her practice experience that she has gained working at the Royal Hobart Hospital in a variety of different specialty areas, including working with gastroenterology teams and oncology.

Rima is a passionate advocate of lifestyle changes to facilitate nutrition that can improve your symptoms and your quality of life.

Georgina Taskunas
Talented and energetic dietitian

“everyBODY deserves to be well nourished and loved”

Raised with a wonderful Lithuanian food culture and a background in dance, Georgina knew from a young age that she wanted to work as a dietitian. Since graduating in 2017 she has worked as a dietitian in the community, at Calvary Hospital and in private practice. Georgina loves educating people about nutrition and she places a strong focus on positive body image and taking a holistic approach to achieving good health.

Georgina enjoys tackling a variety of different conditions but has a strong interest in treating those suffering gastrointestinal upset, hormonal imbalances, disordered eating, or an eating disorder. Georgina loves to work with people who want to build a better relationship with food. She does not do quick fixes or fad diets but will work alongside you to help you find what works best for you.

When not working, you can find Georgina exploring the beautiful island state, taking a dance class, or performing in a musical.

Fiona Rowell
Founder

Raised on an Irish fruit farm (http://mrjeffaresblackcurrants.ie/), Fiona has always appreciated the importance & joy of eating good food.  Trained in the UK, she was lured to this magnificent State by a wonderful Tasmanian man over 20 years ago.  She was fortunate to extend her professional practice at the Royal Hobart Hospital with rotations through all clinical areas & food service until landing her dream job in paediatric care.

Never a fan of restrictive eating, her goal has always been to be a compassionate dietitian empowering clients to discover what works best for them as individuals to achieve their health goals and live life to the full.

“I am delighted to introduce you to my talented colleagues who are committed to my vision of quality client-centered care to meet your individual needs.”

Fiona struggled with inoperable cancer during 2019 and it is with great sadness that we said goodbye to our dear friend in early March 2020. Her warmth, spirited nature & energy and infectious smile filled our office and will be dearly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Fiona’s family.
