My background

I have practised as a solicitor for the last 20 years in the media and general commercial sectors, including working as Head of Legal and Business Affairs for Jamie Oliver, where my interest in food became a passion. I now work part-time as a legal consultant and nutritional therapist.

Having suffered from various conditions over the years and seen many health care professionals and complementary health practitioners, my fascination in the relationship between diet and health has also grown, leading me to study nutritional therapy.

My particular interests whilst studying were:

  • Gastrointestinal health
  • Female Hormone Support
  • Adrenal and Thyroid Function
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Dementia and related conditions
