Personal profile


Christie is an Accredited Practising Dietitian, Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Senior Lecturer at the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food at Monash University.

Since completing her PhD she has worked towards bringing together her clinical and research interests. She is continuing to conduct research into the experiences of people with eating disorders.
