About

This is not what I am here to write about.. But I shall put it in anyway.

I live in Sydney, Australia, and have a MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) and I am currently training in the Rehabilitation Medicine training program. My first degree was in Veterinary Medicine. I have a Cert. III in fitness and hold a Cert IV Module in Nutrition and Weight Management.

I have a keen interest in health, nutrition, exercise and wellness. I have spent time at the Biochemistry and Nutrition Centre at University of Sydney (where the infamous Glycaemic Index ‘sugar clinics’ are based) and undertaken an option placement at the Diabetes and Obesity Group at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney, NSW.

Early 2005 I started a small business focused on maximising performance, health, and body composition through exercise, nutrition, and supplements and since that time I have had international roles as a Forum Leader and Moderator at Bodybuilding.com, and as an International Health Advisor for LiveStrong.com.

Locally I still work in three main areas:

  1. I am a Rehabilitation doctor at a hospital in Sydney
  2. I continue to run my own Consultation Business
  3. I am working as a Performance and Body Composition Specialist for a Sydney Based Allied Health Network

I will eventually combine ‘Emma-Leigh’ with medicine, and with the information gained in my research, to work with individuals to promote health (physical and psychological), increase athletic ability, and achieve aesthetic goals. I also aim to to be active in communities to maximise nutritional health, promote exercise/physical activity, achieve ‘metabolic health’, and enhance better community psychological ‘wellness’.
