What drew you to nutritional therapy?

“When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 23 years ago, there was not much evidence for the role of complementary medicine but some part of me knew that changing my diet and lifestyle would be fundamental to supporting my long term recovery. I’m so glad I followed my instinct. It’s the best career move I ever made.”

What is the most rewarding part of your work?

“I never cease to be amazed at the power of nutrition to transform people’s health and happiness. I feel hugely privileged to work with breast cancer survivors and support them through their experience, and feel it has given my life meaning and purpose.”
