Denise Burbidge


Denise is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian with special interests in the management of diabetes, disordered eating and digestive issues who has been working in the nutrition field for over 12 years. Growing up in regional Victoria, after moving to Melbourne, Denise studied a Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics and went on to complete additional training in diabetes education, health coaching and health sector leadership.  In her career to date, Denise has worked across a range of settings from kitchens and food manufacturing to hospitals and healthcare clinics and is currently working in community health and private practice.

Denise first joined the AB team in 2017 to help out with the six week challenge and Life! program nutrition sessions and has been involved in these programs ever since. Denise has enjoyed seeing the lifestyle changes members and program participants have been able to achieve and is now an AB member herself.

Denise enjoys getting hands on with food whether it be cooking, getting out into the veggie garden or enjoying Melbourne’s many eateries. With exercise Denise is all about participation and having some fun rather than being the greatest. Growing up Denise was involved in athletics in the summer and cross-country skiing & hockey over the winter. In more recent years Denise has surprised herself through taking up dance lessons enjoying social running events.
