BSc (Hons) Nutrition/Dietetics
I qualified as a Registered Dietician in 1993 from the University of Surrey and have significant experience in the medical arena covering dietetics, clinical research and sales.
My main specialist interests are obesity and diabetes. I have experience in both acute and community NHS work. Specialist posts held have included home enteral feeding, diabetes/obesity and also bariatrics.
I am currently owner of Eat Well Now (nutrition consultancy) and offer services to private clients and organisations. My portfolio of work is varied and includes private consultations with individuals on a range of dietary matters, project managing a research study on a nutritional supplement, weight management advice to brain injury clients, bariatric clinics and much more.
In addition to freelancing I also do occasional bank work for the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust and this work involves seeing patients in outpatient clinics and providing education sessions for groups of patients.
I also do voluntary work as a committee member on the Freelance Dieticians Group and organise webinars for FDG members.
I consider myself to have an enquiring mind and want to continuously improve my own practice. I seek out opportunities for continuous professional development.
I consider myself to have excellent verbal and written communication skills. I am able to communicate effectively with health professionals and patients and relate to people from all backgrounds. Having worked as a Dietician for inpatient and community services, I have a good knowledge about the roles of a wide range of health professionals.
I accept instructions from Claimant and Defendant solicitors and insurers, I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
