BSc Food & Nutrition, PG Dip Dietetics, MSc Critical Care
I have over 20 years NHS experience working at an advanced level in large London teaching hospitals. I have now moved into the next exciting phase of my career as a freelance dietitian providing a high quality clinical expert consulting service. I am the co-owner and director of a healthcare consulting firm.
I am currently acting as a SME for a healthcare AI startup and have recently provided external consultancy on a systematic literature review on enteral feeding intolerance. I regularly work as an advisor with a range of nutrition support companies.
Here are some of my clinical dietetic achievements. My strengths lie in the wealth of clinical experience I have in all aspects of artificial nutrition support. I am determined and achievement driven and skilled at leading and delivering local and national strategic level projects i.e. the critical care dietitians Professional Development Framework ; founding the BDA Critical Care Specialist Group and growing it from 50 to 350 members in 5 years;
I have extensive experience of representing dietitians at a strategic national level including being the chair of the nurse and allied health professional committee of the Intensive Care Society (ICS), member of the ICS state of the art conference organising committee, BDA representative on the Critical Care Leadership Forum. Through these projects I have a great understanding of how hospital systems work and are well connected throughout the critical care community.
I lecture extensively on all aspects of nutrition support and I’m a passionate educator to a range of health care professionals. I have excellent writing skills and have authored many book chapters e.g. the manual of dietetics as well as research articles.
Over the last 20 years I have gained a substantial research background, and was a core member of the CALORIES trial team as investigator and NEJM co-author. In June 2016 I was awarded an IBEX award from the BDA for services to critical care dietetics.
When I’m not working, I can be found at home playing with my two gorgeous cats! I love travelling and discovering new places with my husband.
