I was lucky enough to grow up in a household where food was very much at the centre of family life. My mum was a great cook and encouraged me in the kitchen from a young age.
After graduating from university, I started working in Human Resources, and as my career evolved, I developed an interest in employee engagement and leadership development. During this time, I worked one to one with managers and senior leaders to develop them and help them implement the changes required to be successful. I particularly enjoyed this aspect of the role and subsequently undertook at a diploma in coaching which helped hone my skills.
In my early twenties, I also started exercising, and became a keen runner. I took that to the next stage a few years later when I discovered a love of triathlon, completing my first half Ironman race in Switzerland in 2007. What I ate became key to successfully fueling my training as well as being something enjoyable. My focus on sport took a back seat after the birth of my two daughters – I did keep up with regular exercise but could no longer find the time for 3 hour bike rides in the juggle between family life and a full time job!
My interest in food and nutrition never diminished however, and after finding myself spending much of my spare time reading about the impact that what we eat can have on our health and well-being, I was inspired to go back to study and pursue a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy at the world-renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition.
My philosophy is that the way we eat should work for us – fit in with our lifestyle, take into account our preferences and help us feel our very best. I know first-hand the challenges of managing conflicting priorities and the importance of feeling full of energy to manage a hectic life.
With my passion for nutrition, my skills as a coach and my practical and realistic approach, I can help you implement the changes you need to make to live life to the full!
