Karina Savage

BSc (Ex & Sport Science), BND.

I love playing the juggling game of motherhood, work and keeping fit! I truly cherish the time I spend with my 2 young children and also feel lucky to work in a profession where I can honestly make a difference to people’s lives! I am a huge animal lover – especially dogs!

I have over 15 years’ experience as a Clinical Paediatric Dietitian (Nutritionist) which includes 13 years at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Adelaide where I specialised in gastroenterology (both clinically and research). I am a published author in the area of paediatric reflux and allergy.

My specialisation in Children’s Gut Health means I can truly help parents who are needing support managing their child’s issue such as food allergy, carbohydrate intolerance, IBS (FODMAP), Coeliac, Crohns Disease, Constipation and colic.

I also love working with junior athletes as an Accredited Sports Dietitian. I have vast experience with Australian Rules Football, together with my current role working with the Tennis Australia academy NSW.
