Tess Prendergast



Tess is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and is our first Dietitian to join the team at Drop of Life. She completed her Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics at Griffith University here on the Gold Coast. Along with her studies, she completed an intensive 5-month clinical and public health placement, where she provided care and clinical intervention to both adults and children and developed and implemented community health initiatives.

Tess’s approach to care supports and educates clients to feel empowered on their nutrition journey. With her own experiences navigating chronic health conditions and falling into the dieting-trend cycle, she is passionate about supporting clients in navigating the complex world of nutrition trends and misinformation.

Through using the Nutrition Care Process, Tess prioritises an evidence-based approach to care with a client-centred focus. She provides a safe environment where no question is a silly question and will work closely with you to create realistic and achievable goals for you to be able to show up in life feeling your best. She values the importance of taking a collaborative and holistic approach to care working closely with other healthcare professionals to ensure best practice is always prioritised.
