30 Oct Meet Alex Stone
Alex graduated from Monash University with a Master of Dietetics and a Bachelor of Nutrition Science to become an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD). She also completed a Bachelor of Applied Science at Deakin University, majoring in Psychology.
Alex is particularly interested in Sports Nutrition; she is a part of the Nutrition Team for both St. Kilda Football Club and Sandringham Football Club. She is also a Rowing Coach at Caulfield Grammar School and is about to commence her 10th season in this role. Alex believes that good nutrition is an important part of achieving sporting goals for athletes at all levels of sport.
She has also contributed to various research projects in a number of nutrition settings. Alex assisted in evaluating a social enterprise created to respond to food insecurity, which was later published. She also travelled to Alice Springs to assist in a study for ultra-endurance runners.
In the hospital setting, Alex gained experience by working to improve the nutritional status of patients with renal disease, respiratory conditions, and malnutrition.
Alex has Italian heritage, where great food brings loved ones together over a meal and is a joyful part of the day. She hopes to bring this zest for food to her consultations, assisting her clients to achieve their goals by working together to make achievable and sustainable lifestyle changes in a compassionate and non-judgmental way.
In her free time, Alex can often be found searching Melbourne cafes for the best avocado on toast. She is also a keen traveller – always looking to explore local cuisines while abroad.
