Melanie Trimble

Clinic Assistant

BNatMed, Dip. BTh (Hons).

Since graduating at the end of 2021 Mel has been practicing full-time from her home-based clinic in Whangaparāoa. As a family naturopath she enjoys seeing multiple generations of a family and consulting on a diverse range of health conditions.

Her focus is to provide her clients with diet and lifestyle tools that can be easily implemented, as well as herbal medicine. Her prescribing preference is to use nutrition, minerals and herbs as first line treatments with clients.

Mel loves working in the student clinic as it not only provides some balance from her clinical practice, but she really enjoys engaging and supporting to the new cohort of students navigating their clinical year.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking barefoot on the beach, ocean swims, gardening, yoga and strength training, being an old school gamer – board games & cards, attending local quiz nights and lots of socialising with friends and family.
