I have always been interested in nutrition, exercise and health from a young age. Competing at all levels of sport led me to start the early stages of my career as a personal trainer.

I have progressed through my career into dietetics and have come to find my real passion lies in counselling and supporting people, to make lifestyle and dietary changes helping manage weight and long term health conditions.

Outside of work, I love travelling, playing touch rugby and generally being outdoors whether it's cycling, surfing, swimming or enjoying a walk with family and friends.  My other love is of course food and this generally tends to be the end point of any exercise I partake in.
