Blackford Institute for Nutrition
Welcome to our Tutors
Our tutors are a talented and friendly bunch of people who enjoy helping our learners develop their skills.
Larissa got her degree in dietetics in 2006, after which she joined the military for one year. Larissa mainly worked in the ICU unit as well as with the Diabetic Clinic. In 2007 Larissa and a colleague opened our own practice and have been building and expanding our business ever since. Together they treat clients wanting to lose weight or just generally wanting to follow a healthy lifestyle. Larissa specialises in therapeutic diets and conditions like heart disease, diabetes, paediatrics and gastroenterology.
Larissa’s personal passion is sports nutrition as Larissa does road running, as well as trail running events in her spare time.
