More About Me

I made the connection and went vegan during the last year of my undergraduate degree in 2007, having been on-off vegetarian since the age of ten. I gained a 2.1 (Hons) in Physiology from Liverpool University then moved to Bristol where I worked in fundraising for an animal charity.
It was then I realised I had a passion for nutrition and wanted to incorporate both my love for helping people and the plant-based lifestyle. So I took a post as a paediatric dietetic assistant for four years and applied to study a post-graduate diploma in Nutrition and Dietetics.

My current post as a registered dietitian is within the paediatric service in Bristol where I have covered paediatric oncology, allergy, faltering growth and general paeds. Previously I was working in adults within Diabetes, General Medicine, Stroke, Neurosciences and Cardiology.
I run private clinics in Bristol focusing specifically on plant-based nutrition advice. I'm also the official nutritionist for vegan charity TeenVGN and have provided workshops on nutrition at two of their popular summer camps.
My recent achievements include writing a nutrition module for the UK's first plant-based CPD course through Winchester University; speaking on behalf of Plant-Based Health Professionals at the London Olympia at Vegfest; and raising a healthy vegan baby who was born in March 2019.
