Meet the Team

MaryRose Spence, BHSc

Registered Dietitian

MaryRose graduated from Otago University and completed a post graduate year to become a Registered Dietitian. She spent the following ten years overseas working as a Dietitian in Australia, England and Saudi Arabia. The great diversity of cultures she has worked with and their varied associated difficulties have enabled MaryRose to develop a wider than usual knowledge base. Her experiences have enabled her to be particularly resourceful in terms of helping with specific client needs.

On her return to Auckland over 20 years ago, MaryRose established The Nutrition Consultants. This is a busy practice in Remuera, with over 120 GP’s and specialists referring on a regular basis. MaryRose is a well-known and highly regarded authority on weight loss and nutrition. She is a regular presenter of nutritional advice at many levels in the community and is frequently consulted for her expert opinion on both radio and television. In 2012 she published Size does Matter, which has been in the Top 5 best sellers in leading bookstores. MaryRose often contributes weight loss articles to various magazines and is a regular presenter at the annual General Practice Conference and Medical Exhibition. MaryRose is married with two teenage children.
