Meet the Dietitian 


Gerlia has grown up in a family that loves, enjoys, and celebrates food. She is a driven and passionate Dietitian with a desire to improve health and wellness. What really inspired her to become a dietitian is that dietetics is based on science that requires the artful skill of successful implementation as well as the interaction with people. People do not eat nutrients; they eat food and it’s her job to help interpret ever-evolving nutrition research into real food that people can eat and enjoy. 

Gerlia Venter received her Bachelor of Dietetics degree from the University of Pretoria in 2015 after which she completed her community service year at Leratong Hospital in Roodepoort in Gauteng. She is registered as a dietitian with the Health Professional Council (HPCSA) as well as the Association of Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA).

 She also completed:

  • CDE-Optifast® Training Programme;
  • DNAlysis Biotechnology- Nutrigenomics Training;
  • GENEWAY- DNA Testing and Analysis; &
  • 3-Day (24 Hour) Breastfeeding Training Course for Health Care Providers.

She is also an accredited GENEWAY and DNAlysis Practitioner.

As a dietitian, she wants to expand her knowledge, practical experience and skills in the Dietetic environment and strives towards making a difference in each patient’s life. She aims to see wellness not only as a healthy weight or a disease-free life, but rather as life in abundance in all aspects of a person’s life.
