Who share the space at Healthy Energy?
Sarah Leung – The Founder with a Vision, Holistic Nutritionist & Dietitian
Sarah obtained her Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics degree from Monash University in 2009. She started Healthy Energy in 2010 from the Monash Aquatic and Recreation Centre. Between 2010 and 2014, she expanded to seven consultation locations across Melbourne, practicing in various medical centres and sports medicine centres.
Whilst building her business, she realised that something was missing – the capacity for her to offer holistic services. She understood that in order to identify the underlying root causes of medical conditions, she needed to look after both her clients’ mental and physical health. And having a wellness centre with complementary services had always been a dream of Sarah’s.
In 2014, after attending the Institute of Functional Medicine Conference in San Francisco, Sarah was inspired to teach nutrition through cooking and using food as medicine. In the same year, Sarah took a leap of faith and fulfilled her dream by establishing the Healthy Energy Holistic Nutrition & Lifestyle Centre. The centre now has multiple natural health therapist working collaboratively every day.
Healthy Energy has been a finalist at three business awards in 2014 and 2015. Sarah’s role as the founder is to build a healthy community together with her clients and staff. She consults and gives personalised advice using foods and nutritional medicine, and has a special interest in food intolerance and women’s health.
Sarah also regularly contributes to newspaper and magazines. Her articles have been featured in Fairfax Media, Popsugar, Mindbody Magazine, Nourish Magazine, Waverley Leader, Marie Claire and many more.
Sarah enjoys a diverse and rather busy work schedule. In addition to managing Healthy Energy, Sarah also works for La Trobe University, in the development of a Nutritional Medicine and Herbal Medicine course, as well as being the Head Nutritionist of the National Theatre Ballet School. Outside of work, Sarah loves to cook, takes ballet classes and pottery lessons.
