  • about Rebecca

    Rebecca is a leading skin health practitioner (she recently won the 2020 BIMA award for Clinical Excellence!) with a passion for treating skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, lupus, cold sores, impetigo, molluscum and warts.


    Having had acne for a few years, Rebecca understands the shame and embarrassment of dealing with a chronic skin condition. At the time, she wasn't aware of all the treatment options, so unfortunately went down the conventional medication path, which led to undesirable side effects, like blistering lips and dry mouth, that were just as bad as having acne! She later discovered the serious side effects and potential risks these medications carry.


    Now, as a skin health specialist, Rebecca shares safer, natural treatments with her patients that get results. She practises at Melbourne Functional Medicine, alongside health coach Char Harvey, to help you get clear skin, naturally. Find out more about the clinic and our unique 6-month healthcare program here.


    If you're a practitioner seeking assistance with your own patients, Rebecca offers mentoring services. Please complete the contact form below and we'll get back to you.

  • Experience

    Since graduating from Southern Cross University in 2003 with a Bachelor in Naturopathy, Rebecca has combined clinical practice with pursuits in a range of roles within the natural medicine field:

    • Lectured in nutrition and naturopathic degree programs
    • Presented at NHAA International Conference in 2015 and 2019
    • Regulated complementary medicines at the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)
    • Coordinated mental health guidance for the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)
    • Served as a board member for the Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA)
    • Contributed to a national reference text: Herbs and Natural Supplements (Braun and Cohen)

    As demonstrated above, beyond her clinical experience, Rebecca also has experience in medicine regulation, complementary medicine product development, clinical guideline development, technical writing, as well as mentoring, speaking and lecturing.
