Passionate about nutrition and health from a young age, my journey took a significant turn after the birth of my children. Driven by the desire to deepen my understanding, I pursued a comprehensive study of nutrition at the university level.
I earned a first-class honours degree in nutrition, food, and health, receiving recognition for outstanding academic achievement. Committed to ongoing professional development, I've dedicated thousands of hours to expanding my knowledge, contributing to transformative changes in nutrition provision within healthcare settings. My appetite for learning continues, and I consistently share my evolving expertise with clients.
As a qualified, evidence-based nutritionist registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN), the only nutritionists' register recognised by Public Health England and the NHS. Additionally, I proudly serve as the AfN's area representative for Yorkshire & the Humber.
Beyond this, my affiliations include membership in prestigious organizations such as the Nutrition Society, Association for the Study of Obesity, and Royal Society for Public Health. I was also the MSc Nutrition & Science Course Director at the NCA in York, where I played a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of nutrition professionals. I also became a familiar voice on BBC Radio Leeds, where I regularly contributed as a nutrition professional.

This includes but is not limited to hormonal health, weight management, energy levels, food cravings, uncomfortable digestive symptoms, prediabetes or Type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory conditions, unhealthy diets, and more.
With a holistic approach, I am dedicated to empowering individuals on their journey towards optimal health and well-being.
