She has encouraged young children & families to adopt healthy eating practices through her role as a Go4Fun leader and also participated in a malnutrition screening and prevention program for an aged care facility in Broken Hill.

She has hence developed numerous recipes and written articles for print and online magazines and has been interviewed for various newspaper articles.
