I have always been interested in nutrition and health, and I love food, so becoming a dietitian was a no brainer for me! My undergraduate degree in Nutritional Science gave me an in-depth understanding of nutrition and formed a strong foundation for my postgraduate training in Dietetics.
My favourite thing about being a dietitian is being able to share my knowledge and help people to improve their health, whether it be managing IBS symptoms, weight management, healthy ageing, heart health, women’s health – the list goes on! Working in private practice allows me the luxury of being able to give clients the time they need, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
I am passionate about keeping up to date with research and I provide clients with the latest evidence based dietary advice for their particular condition.
