I’m a mum to two beautiful young children, a pharmacist and a personal trainer. I’ve also very recently completed a nutrition course through the Functional Nutrition Academy in order to become a qualified nutrition coach.
I have spent nearly 20 years working in the health industry. I started in community pharmacy then worked in numerous hospital settings once I qualified as a pharmacist. During this time I held many different roles from ward pharmacist through to senior pharmacy management. Although I really enjoyed my roles, I began to feel like I was working in the sickness industry and not the wellness industry.
Whilst completing my fitness qualifications in 2013, I started taking more of an interest in health and wellness. I started investigating further into the lifestyle choices I was making. This led to small incremental changes over time to my food and way of life after discovering just how many harmful chemicals and other nasties are in our food, medicines, home and personal care products.
When I had my first child in 2015 I became more determined to make my family’s environment a healthier one to try and prevent him growing up surrounded by toxic chemicals and foods.
Given my health background, I’m a natural investigator. I like to rely on evidence based research to guide my choices for my family. When one questions the status quo, finding information and evidence to support it is challenging. I spend many hours researching and reading the copious and overwhelming information out there on the best ways to nourish and care for my children in this modern world we live in. This has become my passion.
The idea of this blog was born out of this as I wanted to provide a space to share all this knowledge with other like minded people to make it easier to make their lives healthier too.
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy immersing yourself in my carefully collected tips, ideas, research and personal thoughts.
