Profile

Samantha is an experienced Dietitian and co-founder of Sunlight Nutrition Limited. She graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2007 with a Master of Nutrition Degree. Samantha spent 10 years working in the NHS in a variety of clinical roles including gastroenterology, nutrition support, food allergy and more latterly in paediatrics and school nutrition. Samantha began seeing private patients in 2016 and in 2017 she set up Sunlight Nutrition Limited with her colleague Dr Lynda Rigley.
“Working in private practice has allowed me to deliver a high quality client led service. I am able to see clients in our outpatient clinic or in their own environment and to take the time to truly understand their circumstances and provide a personalised dietary plan”.
Samantha works with a number of children and adults with complex medical needs whose care is managed by a case manager. Samantha works with families, carers and support staff and with the wider multidisciplinary team to share her recommendations.
Alongside her clinical work Samantha has been facilitating on Behaviour Change Training courses led by Dympna Pearson. Samantha is passionate about improving her clients’ experience and enhancing their journey to better health. By training other health care professionals on the behavioural approach, which puts the client at the very heart of everything we do, Samantha hopes to improve the experience and enhance health outcomes for many more people.
Samantha gained accreditation as a BDA Work Ready Dietitian in August 2016. She is keen to support workplaces to improve the health of their workforce.
Samantha enjoys living on a farm with her husband and three young children. She is the Chair of her local NCT (National Childbirth Trust) Branch which works to support local families.
