Susie Burrell is one of Australia’s leading dietitians, known for her extensive background in both nutrition and psychology and for her practical, easy to understand approach to diet, nutrition and wellbeing.
Early in her career, she spent almost 10 years working at The Children’s Hospital and with elite sporting teams including the St George Illawarra Dragons and the South African Blue Bulls where she gained much applied experience working with children, families and elite athletes. Susie is currently the resident sports dietitian at Sydney University Sport.
In 2004 she started representing the Dietitians Association of Australia as a media spokesperson and regularly began appearing in both print and television media commenting on all areas of diet, weight loss and nutrition. Since then, she has been the resident nutritionist on Mornings with Kerri-Anne, Fresh TV and for Dolly magazine, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph Body and Soul, Cosmopolitan, ALPHA and GQ.
Susie is currently the resident dietitian on Channel’s 7’s SUNRISE and has a weekly radio segment on the top rating 2GB Afternoon Program with Chris Smith. Susie currently contributes regularly to smh.com.au, Australian Women’s Fitness, CLEO and Woman’s Day magazines and she is the consultant dietitian at Sydney University Sport, Body Science International, Go Natural Foods, Peppercorn Food Company and SIMPLE skincare.
Currently Susie is also completing a Master’s Degree in Coaching Psychology at Sydney University which takes up much of her spare time but as you would expect, she is a fan of all things health and wellbeing, and so in her limited downtime can usually be found indulging in long walks around Sydney or entertaining friends with healthy, home prepared meals. She also has an incurable love of Icehouse, Burmese cats and eyelashes.
