After almost four brilliant decades as a dietitian, our very own Dr Jane Winter is gearing up to embark on her next big life adventure… retirement-ish, as she calls it. Before she hangs up her DC boots, however, we’re turning the tables on our extraordinary podcast hosting queen and interviewing her about her remarkable career journey. In the podcast, Jane looks back on all the twists and turns her nutrition career has thrown at her, including working in academia, a picture-perfect assignment in Switzerland (which she still pinches herself about!) and the best and worst part of her career all wrapped up in one: completing her PhD. Jane shares her insightful advice for new dietitians, touches on the importance of self-reflection and explains why everything you do prepares you for the next step in your life. Plus, she even has a little chuckle about the “shocking” counselling sessions she remembers doing when she first graduated. Tune in to this very special podcast as we wish our dear friend and colleague all the very best for her retirement.



Dr Jane Winter is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and the Account Director at Dietitian Connection. Jane brings several decades of experience in clinical, community, industry and academic dietetics to Dietitian Connection. In addition to her dietetic qualifications, Jane holds a Masters of Professional Education & Training from Deakin University and in 2017 completed her PhD in the area of nutritional risk in community based older adults.

  • The many different aspects of dietetics Jane counts herself lucky to have worked in
  • How Jane juggled having a family with her career
  • Jane’s career highlight of completing her PhD
  • What Jane learnt through the challenges she faced along the way
