I began my career at the Hammersmith Hospital seeing a wide variety of inpatients and outpatients and getting my first taste of working with children.
I moved on to work in the community around South West London where I spent 7 years seeing adults and children in clinics, schools and their own homes with nutritional problems that included obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, coeliac disease, food intolerance and allergy, failure to thrive in children, poor appetite, eating disorders, disease related weight loss, swallowing problems and tube feeding plus many more.
More recently, I have managed therapy services for adults and children but maintained a keen interest in my professional roots.
I am now self employed and launched Nutrition Ambition in December 2010 with the aim of making evidence based, individualised dietary advice accessible to anyone with a nutritional need.
I am registered by the health professions council as a dietitian and my registration number is DT05463. This means that I am qualified to translate scientific facts about nutrition into advice to individuals and groups. I do not sell supplements or support fad diets. You can check my registration here and read more about dietitians and why they are different from nutritionists on the British Dietetic Association website.
