Dr Joanna McMillan is one of Australia’s best-known health, nutrition and healthy lifestyle experts. She is a regular on television and is the official nutritionist for the Today Show, as well as radio and print media. She is director of her own small but growing company Dr Joanna which runs an online lifestyle change program Get Lean.
In August 2016 Joanna was appointed Nutritional Advisor for Freedom Foods Group, makers of great tasting, high quality, healthy foods and beverages with a focus on wholesome, tasty, allergen- ‘free foods’. Joanna will act as a media and consumer spokesperson for the brand and will be involved with their social media profile.
Joanna is a nutrition science consultant to various companies, is an in-demand and experienced presenter nationally and increasingly overseas. She is an author and is currently working on her sixth published book, as well as writing regularly for her own blog, several other websites as well as published magazines. She is also a co-author and ambassador for the newly launched Diploma of Nutrition with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers.
Joanna grew up in her native country of Scotland where she first trained as a fitness instructor some 25 years ago. After studying psychology for two years, she moved to the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland where she gained a BSc with First Class Honours in Nutrition and Dietetics.
After working first in research she moved to London and worked with a small nutrition and exercise consultancy business, not unlike her own business today. However, the call to return to research and further study was strong and she decided to immigrate to Australia in 1999 to pursue career opportunities at the University of Sydney.
The following year she was awarded a scholarship to undertake a PhD under the supervision of Professor Jennie Brand-Miller and Professor Ian Caterson – both Internationally recognised nutrition and obesity experts. Joanna was awarded her nutrition science PhD in 2006. She subsequently co-authored the International bestseller The Low GI Diet with Professor Brand-Miller and fellow dietitian Kaye Foster-Powell.
Joanna lives in Sydney with her husband Joel, two young sons Oliver and Lewis, and their family dog Spartacus.
