Mrs. Stephanie Desnousse is currently the Principal Nutritionist at the Ministry of Health. She has been working for the Ministry for the past nine years. She has a BSc in Nutrition from Curtin University, Perth and an MSc in Nutrition and Dietetics from Griffith University, Queensland. She has been a member of ECCE for the health sector since 2015 and was nominated as Chairperson of the committee in 2018. Her work involves educating and increasing awareness of parents and parents-to-be on the best form of nutrition for young children.
