I have always been fascinated by medicine and by how our body functions. Food has always been my hobby; I love reading about it, developing recipes, cooking and of course enjoying it! When it was time for me to choose a career, combining my interest in medicine and my love for food was the only way forward.
I completed a BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics from King’s College London and went on to study for a Masters in Public Health (MPH) at Imperial College London. Following this, I worked as a Research Dietitian, while studying for a Masters in Primary Health Care (Diabetes Management) at the University of Oxford. I have also received training on Intensive Insulin Therapy for Type 1 diabetes at King’s College London.
I consider myself extremely lucky as apart from my clinical practice, I have also had the opportunity to work as a dietitian in a variety of settings.
I worked in academia, where I coordinated research studies to help patients with diabetes optimise their blood glucose control, through educational and behavioural interventions.
I acted as a Dietetic Consultant for the development of nutritional education tools, teaching resources and smartphone applications, widely used in routine clinical practice for the management of a variety of medical conditions.
I have also written various articles (check links under Publications) for medical journals and specialist magazines and I developed online education resources on nutrition-related topics.
With over 10 years dietetic experience I now run my own successful private dietetic practice in London, offering dietetic services of the highest quality.
