Coach Georgia’s aim is to empower athletes, from the “everyday” to the “elite”, to reach their potential by nourishing their bodies and simply enjoying the food they eat. She’s passionate about “health first” behaviours and helping clients achieve realistic long-term changes for their health and life performance.
Georgia grew up in a health-conscious and active household, which led her to represent South Australia in softball for 10 years (from juniors to open age groups) before taking up AFL in 2012. From her first training session, she was hooked and became involved in the groundswell that led to her being drafted in the inaugural AFLW competition in 2017. Georgia is an Inaugural AFLW premiership player with the Adelaide Crows, co-captain of Sturt FC SANFLW, and is currently playing VFLW with Hawthorn FC.
Georgia has always been passionate about sports performance, so a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Flinders University, 2015) before becoming an Accredited Sports Dietitian in 2017, made sense for her. Like many young girls, she spent her late-teens dieting and subsequently developed disordered eating habits. Through her dietetics course, she learned the value of food as fuel, which now plays a vital role in helping her juggle her professional and sporting careers.
After uni, Georgia learned about the “non-diet” approach and intuitive eating, and she began to heal her relationship with food and her body. This ultimately led to an increase in strength, fitness and mental health with less focus on body composition goals.
