 I’m Dr Kate Marsh, an Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian, Credentialled Diabetes Educator and Health & Medical Writer based in Sydney, Australia.

My goal is to help people with diabetes, women with PCOS and individuals following or wanting to adopt a plant-based diet through my work as both a healthcare professional and writer.

My interest in diabetes and nutrition began after I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of ten, when I met my first dietitian. This led me to studying dietetics and then diabetes education. Today, I combine clinical practice as a dietitian and diabetes educator with my work as a health and medical writer. 

How I can help you?

Do you have type 1 diabetes, gestational diabetes or polycystic ovary syndrome or are you following or looking to adopt a plant-based diet to manage your diabetes or PCOS?  Find out more about the services I provide and how I can help you with your nutrition and diabetes education needs here.

Are you in need of an experienced health and medical writer or editor?  I can help you with developing engaging, evidence-based content for your target audience, from blog and newsletter articles, to consumer and health professional resources, books, ebooks or online learning modules.
