Felicity Edwards APD AN
Accredited Practising Dietitian
From a young age, Felicity knew she wanted to have a career revolving around her love of food and nutrition. Having grown up on a dairy farm, she kept an active lifestyle by either chasing chickens or being chased by cows. She developed a love for fresh food and good nutrition by helping out in the dairy, and by picking fruit in the orchard, and harvesting vegetables from the veggie patch.
At school, Felicity's favourite subject was biology (and chatting with her friends); so naturally, a career in health which allowed her to talk with people about food everyday was a perfect fit.
As a young adult, she moved to the big city of Brisbane where she completed a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics with Honours at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Enjoying all aspects of nutrition; Felicity has practised dietetics in the community, nursing homes, and the hospital setting in both rural and metro areas.
Felicity understands and appreciates that everybody is unique, and there is no magic-pill "one-size-fits-all" dietary approach. Preferring to work alongside her clients to provide easy to understand nutrition advice; Felicity strives to enable her clients to make sustainable changes that achieve results in an enjoyable way.
Although she is not the sporty type (instead preferring to leave that to Bec), Felicity does enjoy watching and cheering on her favourite sports teams. Her favourite sports are AFL and Cricket. She also loves to challenge herself to learn new skills and is currently learning to speak French and play the piano.
Felicity provides consultations at our Carina and McDowall clinic locations.
