Kishani Turner


Kishani works as part of the multi-disciplinary team at The Sunshine Coast Medical Weight Loss Centre.

Being half Italian, Kishani has grown up with an appreciation and respect for good food, from paddock to plate. This lead Kishani to study a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics which she graduated from in 1992.

She started her specialised work in Metabolic Surgery Dietetics in 2010 when she moved to the Sunshine Coast.

Her passion is empowering others. She loves working with the patients at the SCMWLC as they are motivated to change their lives and work on improving their relationship with food, preparation and cooking.

Kishani has 2 daughters and a wonderful husband who she has been married to for 23 years. When she is not working, Kishani enjoys spending time with her family & friends, travelling, music and walking her beloved dog on the beach.
