About Me

  • My Background
  • I am passionate about good nutrition and recognise the benefits to health. I would love to see this knowledge more widely understood and used in everyone’s life.I have always been interested in food, I guess we all are, but for me it began when I started to understand its wonders through my father’s career in food processing. I followed in his foot-steps and, after gaining a BSc in Chemical Engineering, worked for a major cereal manufacturer and later for a ready meals supplier . This has given me a broad understanding of the processed food industry and its market influences.My life then took an interesting change in direction. I was made redundant whilst on maternity leave with my first child and decided to change career. My interest in nutrition began when I consulted a nutritional therapist when trying to conceive, and then, with a responsibility for my daughters health, I wanted to know more. I enrolled on a course which was originally written by Dr Lawrence Plaskett, a naturopath who originally trained as a biochemist and medicinal doctor and was the first in the UK to train nutritional therapists. This opened my eyes to the amazing truth of the body’s ability to heal itself given the right nutrition and life style. The course was developed to keep abreast with massive acceleration of research into nutritional science and thus equipped me to continue to take onboard new scientific evidence, whilst having a good foundation. After 6 years of studying I received a degree in Nutritional Medicine from the University of West London.I’m continually learning by attending seminars, meeting like-minded people and reading new research. My ambition is to share this knowledge, as it’s only through education that we can change the lives of people.I am now a mother of two and volunteer in a variety of activities in Thame including giving Nutritional talks at the Red Kite Children Centre.
