Natasha graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics in 2004. Following her internship, Natasha commenced her career as a community service dietician at Dundee Provincial Hospital in KZN. It was here where her love for paediatric nutrition was born. Keen to further specialise in paediatrics, Natasha followed her passion to the United Kingdom where she worked at a number of various hospitals in and around London and received extensive experience and training in the areas of neonatal and paediatric nutrition.

Natasha returned to South Africa and continued her love for paediatrics and worked as a Principal Paediatric Dietician at Grey’s Hospital, after which she took a leap of faith and opened her own dietetic practice in Pietermaritzburg. Natasha and her husband relocated to Cape Town in 2013 and was fortunate enough to join Kath Megaw & Associates, where she has gained extensive experience and training in the field of paediatrics from working under Kath Megaw’s expert guidance. Natasha’s areas of specialty include neonatal nutrition and infant and toddler feeding.
