I grew up in Scotland, moving to Rio de Janeiro when I was seven before finishing my schooling in Farnham, Surrey. I come from a family of homeopaths, and my Grandmother opened one of the first health food shops in the country. Aged 18, I migrated to London to start modelling – doing runway shows and advertising campaigns for labels including: Chanel, Versace, Prada, Dior, McQueen, Dolce & Gabanna, Miu Miu and Vogue.
I had my first child Elfie when I was 24, my second child Bliss at 30, and my third, Blythe at 31.
The rigours of modelling and bringing up healthy, happy children lead me to question the nutritional value of the food I purchased and the food my family consumed. I came to realise that many of the common ailments that affect us – like sluggishness, skin complaints, headaches, fatigue and stress – can be dramatically improved by simply changing what we put in our mouths.
After many years of experimenting with raw food and different health regimes I decided to stop experimenting on my family, put my money where my mouth is and take myself off to college.
And now, after three years study, I have qualified from The College of Naturopathic Medicine as a naturopathic nutritionist. I still enjoy a good time and a sneaky take-away (now and then) – I want to break the mystery of good eating and make a healthy lifestyle available to everyone. I qualified from The College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2012. You don’t need to shop at Planet Organic or know what a Chia seed is in order to feel the benefit of good food!
I have a clinic on Harley Street in London as well as working in the Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire areas. I also do phone consultations.
