My freelance work has involved working with a number of individual clients such as runners, rugby players and gym goers, as well as working for Edinburgh Academicals Rugby team and the Borders Athlete Support Programme as a performance nutritionist. I have written and presented healthy eating and sports nutrition workshops and talks to clubs, teams and schools. Previous presentations include Netball Scotland, the MGA Performing Arts School, Edinburgh Accies, Boxing Scotland, Gala Harriers, Edinburgh Athletic Club, Durham Rowing Club and Run and Become.

I am not currently taking on clients or doing workshops, as my current role has taken me to Queen’s University in Belfast, but please feel free to browse the website and blog for nutrition tips and dinner inspiration!
