Shannon Chabaud

Nurse Manager

Shannon studied Nursing in Wollongong, Australia, graduating in 1996. She got her initial nursing experience in Sydney’s Hornsby Hospital where she worked on an Orthopaedic/ Surgical ward. After two years there, she spent a further two years in the Spinal Unit at the Royal Ryde Rehabilitation centre. She then moved to Sydney’s prestigious teaching hospital, The Royal North Shore, where she worked in the Emergency room.

Shannon has also worked in two rural Hospitals, Pambula and Bega Hospital in NSW. This necessitated her becoming a ‘jack of all trades’, doing everything from assisting midwives to deliver babies to working in the trauma room stabilizing and evacuating major road accident victims. She also worked at the Cairns Base Hospital in a similar role.

After some time off, she began work in Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital filling in on the Nurse Bank in various wards, including Emergency, Cardio/Thoracic and the HIV unit.

Joshua Keil

Nutritionist
B.Sc. Human Nutrition (Canada)
Registered Dietician (R.D Canada)

Joshua is a nutritionist, with a B.Sc. Human Nutrition, and a Registered Dietitian (R.D.) from Canada who helps clients reach their nutritional goals not through a restrictive diet, but by helping clients incorporate nourishing foods that result in weight loss, improved energy, digestion, and overall health. He believes there is no one size fits all model for nutrition, as everyone has individualized needs based on genetics, culture, health, and taste. Real whole foods first should be the base of any diet, but Joshua can also help clients appropriate supplements if deemed necessary. Therefore, every client will be given an individualized nutrition plan, based on an initial consultation, and diet analysis.

Joshua has three years of experience in Asia, both in Shanghai and Hong Kong, and thus understands the unique challenges of living and being healthy in a foreign country. He
has specific expertise in helping clients with weight management, high blood sugar, blood pressure, chronic illness, Irritable bowel syndrome, detoxification, sport nutrition, and overall health and wellbeing through individualized nutrition and meal plans. Joshua conducts appointments in English, which can be supplemented with French, and Mandarin Chinese.
