Get to know us a little better and meet the Chiefs

educating and inspiring people
in our community and beyond

The Chief Life was born out of a desire to reach, educate and inspire a greater number of people than those we coached and worked with in our own local community. It gives us the chance to connect with individuals from all over the world and in a form that still personalises the approach to bring each person what they need for their nutrition at that point in time.


Stacey Turner (Stace)


My desire to learn more about nutrition started at a very early age. I have always loved cooking and when I was little, I wanted to be a chef. Whilst I was growing up, my dad often got sick with his type 1 diabetes, which drove me to want to find out more about food as a medicine and how I could work to help people like my dad to get improved health from the food they chose to eat.

In the process of studying Nutrition at Sydney uni, I found that there was a need to deepen my knowledge and understanding of movement and training as well. I have always had a passion for movement, having been a ballerina from the age of 2, and so it made sense to me to have food and movement go hand in hand.
I achieved my cert 3 & 4 in fitness, got hired by a CrossFit gym and have spent the last 10 years working with all kinds of wonderful individuals to empower them to eat and move in a way that allows them to be the best version of themselves they can be. During that time, I have also come up against a number of health issues (coeliac disease, adrenal fatigue, gut health issues, MTHFR gene mutation, under active thyroid) that I have worked my way through and using The Chief Life philosophy, I have been able to still experience a full and happy life.

You can too and I can’t wait to work with you to help you experience your most optimum level of health and wellbeing.

Things have never come easy for me, so I’ve always had to work at it – whether it be nutrition or training, and so I feel that helps me to be a better coach and be able to connect with others better because I’ve experienced the struggles and come out the other side, better for it. I’m looking forward to having you join and tribe and being able to help you too.

To say that I am passionate about nutrition is an understatement! Since giving up a career in graphic design to undertake a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) I have been constantly in awe of the power of food and its effects on the body and our health.

I have always loved sports, having represented Australia in archery, and played representative touch, netball and softball. I’m now a CrossFit enthusiast and I love pushing my mind and body to discover what I’m capable of.

Supporting people to achieve their goals, whether for performance or health (or both!) brings me so much joy and I can’t wait to help you reach your potential.

I wasn’t exactly studious at school but the one thing I did excel at was nutrition, health and food technology but it wasn’t until my mid twenty’s that I decided to enrol to study for my Nutrition Diploma. From my first classes I was hooked, sitting at the front of my classes absorbing as much as I could, I had no idea that food could be such a powerful tool. After gaining my diploma I worked in the industry for a number of years before deciding I wanted to extend on my knowledge further so I enrolled in the Bachelor of Health Science (nutrition and dietetic medicine) and I’m so glad I did. I learnt so much in the process and gained invaluable experience to work as a clinical nutritionist.

I am a passionate foody who loves to cook and eat, am a mum of two active boys and love keeping active myself and will visit the beach any chance I get.

I absolutely love being a nutritionist and feel so fortunate to be able to assist people achieve their health goals and be the best version of themselves.

My passion for nutrition started after many years of just not feeling 100% and knowing that feeling fatigued, anxious and dealing with an unhappy gut wasn’t right, there had to be a better way, and I was right!

Nutrition and exercise became the key to finding my joy again and enabling me to undertake all the events I had put on the bucket list including multiple half marathons, full marathon, 34km sky run, 50km trail run and 96km Gold Coast Kokoda Challenge in the space of four years.

I love nothing more than heading out to the trails for a run, running & nature in one activity, bliss!
I gain a lot of joy from helping people trust in the power of their own body and rediscover the sparkle they once had.

After suffering from multiple auto immune diseases and gynaecological symptoms for most of my adolescent life combined with a highly stressful training schedule and little down time, I eventually crashed and burned….. It was then that I decided to look into the power of nutrition, exercise and mindfulness practices to help restore my body back to health.

This is where I found my passion! Working with people on a holistic level to balance hormones, improve mood, manage weight all whilst educating people on the benefits of a balanced whole foods diet.

Being a Mother I needed to lead by example and this is the best way I know how!

My interest in studying nutrition stemmed from my love for food and desire to learn about how food can be ‘medicine’ and help to improve someone’s health and wellness. I studied a Bachelor of Science (Nutrition) (Honours) at the University of Sydney for four years to become an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD).

I am very passionate about empowering people to make sustainable and practical dietary changes to enable healthy eating to become a natural and fun part of their lifestyles.

What I love most about what I do is inspiring people to help them develop a positive relationship with food and their body, enjoy their food and move away from  ‘diet-culture’ that is so prominent today.
