Growing up in the greater Brisbane region, Mandah spent her youth exposed to a diverse array of cultures and their rich tapestry of foods, music and dress. This sparked a passion for travel, and by her teens Mandah had had the opportunity to travel to a number of different countries and experience many types of food and food preparation.
The connection between food and health was further solidified through Mandah’s own health issues. From severe childhood asthma, to an auto-immune disease (alopecia areata) in early adulthood, Mandah has always turned first and foremost to food, nutrition, gut-health and natural remedies her first steps to recovery.
To formalise this journey, Mandah has undertaken both studies in nursing, and nutrition, to provide her with a balanced and informed view of health in modern society. This has only reinforced her conviction that all-round health and wellbeing are centered around food and nutrition.
Mandah established Grassroots Health in 2013, which has expanded to include food education through her classes, community talks and one-on-one consultations in the Northside of Brisbane at Clayfield and volunteer work throughout the greater Brisbane area. The focus of Grassroots Health is ensuring good nutrition is affordable and accessible to everyone, allowing people to achieve a balance of mind, body and soul through making changes to diet and lifestyle.
