HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE INDUSTRY THAT YOU ARE IN NOW?
Through initially working as a Physiotherapist, I set up and ran my own health clinic, which was incredibly demanding, managing multiple associate health professionals.
Despite working as a health professional, I was not taking care of myself. Then nutrition opened up a world that would see me thriving and energised in ways I hadn’t felt for years.
WHAT DRIVES YOU?
A deep desire to counter the narrative that many of the suffering experienced by individuals is out of their control. To empower people with high quality, science-based information that allows them to take control of their health in order to maximise performance and potential.

WHAT DO YOU TO UNWIND & RELAX?
Listen to music, play Trivial Pursuit as a family (old school!), watch a movie, walk along the seafront (Clevedon is beautiful!)
FAVOURITE BOOK & WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?
‘The Choice’ by Edith Edgar It’s such a moving book, so difficult to read at times and yet it challenges you to look closely at your own internal narrative, to understand yourself better. Truly a book of hope born out of the most desperate of situations.
FAVOURITE FOOD & WHY ?
My morning smoothie. It so ritualistic! After a tall glass of water with salt and lemon, a dog walk filled with hills, I am always so excited to break my morning fast with a frozen banana, avocado and chocolate smoothie, knowing it’s not only delicious, but nourishing. Taking time to eat well, to me, is the ultimate form of self-respect.
FAVOURITE BAND / SINGER ?
Ludovico Einaudi. His music moves beyond words. I listen to his albums when I need to write creatively. I have been privileged to hear him play live and it was an experience I will never forget.
