What have been the highlights of your career?

I love my job. As a lecture I work with people who are eager to learn. It’s a joy to prepare students for careers where they can make a real difference in in food policy, education, advocacy or community food organisations. One of the best aspects of my job is when students feel equipped and empowered to help shape and promote sustainable and ethical food systems.

What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about sustainable food systems and the positive impact food can have on young people’s growth, learning, mental health and physical activity.

I love empowering young people to make informed choices about what they put in their body by translating the latest scientific evidence.

Some of my talks describe what nutrients the body needs to perform at its best, and I provide my top tips and meal ideas, while my other talks describe the role of the individual in the wider food system.

Anything else you’d like to share with us?

I have a Bachelor of Food and Nutrition (B.AppSC) and a Master of Dietetics (M.Diet).
