Compassionate dietitian
Hello! A little bit about me

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always had a keen interest in food and nutrition. Growing up on a farm in the Scottish Borders, I knew where most veggies came from, and it wasn't the local supermarket. My mum is an amazing cook and I feel fortunate to have been brought up learning and appreciating simple, but delicious and nourishing home-cooked meals. 


I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences and a Master of Science degree in Public Health Nutrition. In 2005 I graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics and I'm now a UK registered Dietitian with the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).


I maintain continuing professional development to ensure I'm up to date with current evidence-based science to practice safely, effectively, and legally within my evolving scope of practice. This has included certifications in fertility nutrition and training in the Low FODMAP diet for IBS by Monash University.


I have worked in a variety of healthcare settings and have more than 15 years of experience helping individuals, families, and communities across the UK, France, and Australia make improvements to their health by adopting healthier eating and lifestyle habits. 


I became passionate about the link between food, lifestyle and women’s health when, like many women, I struggled with trying to conceive. I was told multiple times that I was suffering from ‘unexplained infertility’, but I didn’t give up and kept searching for answers. After a while I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis. The journey was long, and I soon became aware of the limited amount of factual, consistent and reliable information out there relating to endometriosis, fertility and nutrition. Fast forward a year later, I conceived after a successful round of IVF.

My dream of starting a practice focused solely on women’s health and prenatal nutrition was born out my own experiences during my endometriosis and fertility journey, when I became aware of the lack of credible, evidenced-based nutrition counselling and information available to women.

I know first hand how the information gaps, combined with the emotional and physical demands of managing a health condition, can be challenging. So I’ve decided to dedicate my career and my practice, Nurture for Life Nutrition, to provide evidence-based, personalised nutrition advice to help women on their journey to a healthier and happier life.
