Vanessa Vujcich

Vanessa joined the BioCare Nutrition Team after returning home from New Zealand where she graduated with a Bachelor in Health Science and Diplomas in Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine.

During 14 years in the health and supplement industry, she has enjoyed a range of roles and has developed a strong commitment and passion for ongoing clinical research. Over the course of her career, Vanessa has developed a particular interest in gut and digestion and the impact that our modern lifestyle has created on our nervous system. Vanessa’s interest in natural health and nutrition was kick started with her own health journey and she now believes in the importance of understanding the cause of a condition and supporting the whole person and not just the symptoms for the best results.

Olenka now works for BioCare as a Clinical Nutrition Advisor, whilst also setting up her own private practice, melding her two practises together.

Seema Vekaria

Clinical Nutrition Advisor

Seema’s passion for nutrition developed after her struggle with her own health, which encouraged her to train as a Nutritional Therapist to help others reach optimum health and wellbeing. Seema is also a qualified Optometrist and finds this scientific background is useful in nutrition.

Throughout her work and studies, she’s developed an interest in children’s health and nutritional support throughout pregnancy, and is planning to start her own private clinic.

Lorena Neacsa

Kylie Peavoy

Clinical Nutrition Advisor

Kylie’s career change from the busy world of events into nutrition finally came after deciding to put her own health first, following years of working in a high-pressured environment. After organising various healthcare and lifestyle exhibitions, her passion for holistic health encouraged her to re-train as a Nutritional Therapist to support and empower others on their wellness journey.

Combining her experience and training, Kylie is particularly interested in the brain-gut connection, stress and anxiety management, and skin conditions.
