My work as a dietitian is not simply a day job, but a deep and meaningful personal pursuit. I am highly qualified with fifteen years of experience working with private patients. My enthusiasm for helping people achieve their best health never wanes because when our health is optimised we unlock our full potential. I believe it is every person’s right to live with the best health possible and I am determined to do my very best to make that happen using nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
In my teenage years, I suffered with my own health challenges and nutrition was the major game changer in my recovery. I felt abandoned by my doctors and have spent my career trying to prevent any other people feeling the loneliness I felt. I continue to sit in awe of the transformations I watch happening in my clinic, as I did in my very first patient - myself.
I completed my clinical training at New York Presbyterian Hospital at the University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Medical Schools. This particular training was the most medically thorough available in the United States and set me in good stead to be able to take care of all disease states presented to me as a dietitian. My interest in treating a broad range of conditions has remained and I am happy to receive complex patient types in my clinic. In addition to my training, I keep up to date with the latest advances in nutritional science and research in a continual effort to learn as much as possible furthering my ability to support patients.
Another aspect to my practice involves doing our best to help the planet. Our environment is as much a part of our health and well-being as it is to the eco-system as a whole. Learning to choose and cook nourishing food that is grown in your garden, locally or within the UK and not shipped miles from around the world is important in maintaining a low carbon footprint. The UK itself has many of its own underrated superfoods; the humble apple, seasonal berries and cruciferous vegetables to name a few!
