Lauren Riva

Lauren is a Melbourne-based dietitian whose interest in nutrition developed whilst studying Psychology. During this degree, Lauren began to recognise the significant influence of nutrition on how we feel not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. She then decided to complete a dual major in human nutrition and later completed an additional Bachelor in Applied Science and her Masters in Dietetics. Lauren has experience in both hospital and community settings in a wide range of clinical areas and has also contributed to the successful implementation of organisation nutrition policy, as well as large scale menu auditing and analysis.

Her ultimate goal as a dietitian is to empower clients to feel better and live better so they can show up in the world as the best version of themselves, whatever that means to them. Lauren believes in a client-centred approach to assist individuals in creating and implementing a lifestyle that is both sustainable and enjoyable by translating nutritional science into practical solutions.

In her spare time, you’ll find Lauren hunting down Melbourne’s best almond milk mocha, visiting markets and bookstores, hiking around beach trails, and spending time with family and friends.
