'The staff at QUT had industry experience that represented the diversity of roles in the profession. Seeing the effects of nutrition-related chronic disease while on professional placement confirmed for me that I wanted to work in the preventative health space. I now work as a Nutrition Project Manager for the largest Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation in Queensland.'

Set yourself up for success

'QUT's facilities, staff and environment nurtured the growth of a great friendship. This friendship progressed to a successful and ongoing business relationship. The knowledge and experiences at QUT set us up for success. We still keep in contact with other alumni, lecturers and supervisors who continue to support our success along the way. Exercise Healthcare Australia is currently taking over Queensland, with our team of Exercise Physiologists assisting those living with chronic disease, disability and injuries, and we intend to share our knowledge and passion with all of Australia.'
