Qualifications & Memberships
I am a Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian.
To become a Dietitian I completed a four year degree in Nutrition & Food Sciences.
I am a member of the UK Health and Care Professions Council and also a full member of the “British Dietetic Association (BDA)” As part of this group I was a core writer of the BDA's Allergen Toolkit for Healthcare Catering.
In addition to my degree I have obtained the 'Award in Education level 3' Teaching Qualification.
With over a decade of post-graduate dietetic experience, I have spent the majority of my career helping hundreds of children with food allergies to have access to safe and nutritious meals both at home and in school.
I have extensive experience helping parents who either suspect their child has a food allergy or worry that their child's diet may be compromised due to confirmed allergies. I provide a full allergy focused history, a nutritional assessment and a detailed plan with plenty of practical ideas to equip parents with the tools needed to help navigate their child's allergies, growth and relationship with food.
Alongside running my private business, I also work part-time as a Specialist Paediatric Allergy Dietitian for two local NHS hospitals.
