I am a lifelong basketball fanatic and continue to represent the mighty Sutherland Sharks. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and our 3 young children.

Sonya Cheung​
Clinical Dietitian

I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian who is passionate about empowering others to make sustainable lifestyle changes. I endeavour to provide personalised interventions according to clients’ cultural background, preferences and needs as I understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
I aspire to be a compassionate and supportive dietitian, utilising my knowledge and experiences to help and guide my clients making positive changes to their diet and develop positive relationship with food.
