I aim to give you the knowledge, support and motivation in order to empower you to make the changes you want to make for your own health and wellbeing.

I have always been fascinated by nutrition, health and the body. I also became increasingly aware of the high level of stress individuals are under in the western world as well as the growing incidences of illness there are.

I was frustrated by the lack of coherent support and guidance for those who needed or wanted it. Following a successful career in Sales and Marketing I decided to follow my heart and embarked on a three year intensive training at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition founded by Patrick Holford in London. I am passionate about my subject which is ever changing and I am committed to continual professional development and attend as many extra lectures and workshops as I can to be up to date and evidence based in my work.

I’ve worked in a corporate environment, travelling with my job and am now a working mother of two boys, so I have a fundamental understanding of the various challenges of life. I love the countryside I live in and am keen on fitness and fresh air. However, I also love to keep up with my friends and family and value connection with other people. I believe that as with nutrition, life is about balance.
