I became a dietitian as I wanted to combine working with people with my passion for food and health! I love all things food: cooking it, eating it, photographing it, reading about it. My interest in science led me to become a dietitian; the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and an ethical code, trained to use evidence-based advice.
I completed an undergraduate degree in Zoology from Durham University followed by a Masters in Nutrition and Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics, both from King’s College, University of London. I have worked in a variety of positions within the National Health Service, working with adults and children alike. I specialised in maternal and infant nutrition, as the potential impact of good nutrition during this essential stage in your child’s development can have positive effects throughout their life! That’s a really exciting (and probably slightly terrifying!) thought.
Being given nutritional advice isn’t enough to support you to improve your health and wellbeing. Nutrition is a science but it is also an art; it must be made understandable and engaging. I work hard to understand your own lifestyle and unique dietary requirements and formulate a practical dietary plan for you or your family. I can help develop your nutritional knowledge and cooking skills to enable you to improve your health in a fun and engaging way.
