About Dorothy

smDR-8 My name is Dorothy Richmond. I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian and member of the Dietitians Association of Australia. I am passionate about  improving the nutrition and health of my patients. I have more than 20 years’ experience since qualifying as a dietitian at the University of Surrey in the UK and I gained an MBA from James Cook University in Cairns.

My experience in the hospitality industry in Far North Queensland allows me to successfully advise my patients about cooking methods and eating outside of the home. I can assist my patients with my cooking style which leans towards Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.  I am a qualified chef and experienced trainer and hold a Diploma in environmental sustainability.


  • In 2006 I attended the International Congress on the Mediterranean diet held by the James Beard Foundation in Florence.
  • In 2010 I completed ProChef course in Asian cookery at the Culinary Institute of America in New York
