Armed with a Bachelor Degree in Health Science, a Graduate Certificate in Human Nutrition, and years of experience in clinical practice, Reece is a passionate champion for sensible, whole-food nutrition.
His refreshingly honest approach cuts through the wellness noise and helps his audience make real and sustainable change to their wellbeing.
Years before becoming a nutritionist and naturopath, Reece’s love of wholesome eating began on his family farm in Western Australia. It was there, while helping his green-thumbed grandfather tend to the overgrown veggie patch, that Reece developed a keen sense of connection to the land and where his food came from. And it was in the kitchen that his mum taught him to cook. From there, a love of good food was ignited.
In a clinical setting, as well as through years of public speaking and involvement in print and broadcast media, Reece has helped people unlearn years of restrictive, harmful, and fad-based eating behaviours. In their place, he instils the benefits of wholesome eating patterns and dietary diversity — with a focus on gut health, mental wellbeing and weight management.
Reece has appeared on Channel 7’s The Morning Show to ‘myth bust’ wellness trends, Channel 9’s Today to showcase affordable supermarket swaps for overhyped super foods, and Sky News to weigh in on Australia’s national eating habits. He has also appeared on The Daily Edition, Studio Ten, and Sunrise; and has contributed to digital and print publications that include Body + Soul, GQ, Woman’s Day, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Men’s Health and Women’s Fitness among others.
Reece is the author of two books: The Garden Apothecary and The Happy Gut. He has an active audience of over 50,000 people across Instagram and Facebook.
His expertise is effective, fun and cheekily delivered with his down to earth Aussie charm.
