I had an interest in science, health and wellbeing from an early age. I grew up on a dairy farm in Co. Laoise and was inspired by nature. My grandparents were avid gardeners, and produced all their own food, so the love of eating healthy nutritious food filtered down to my generation.
With a curious mind, a people orientated personality and a business instinct, I decided to take up a career in the marketing industry and enjoyed over 15 years working in market leading companies in both London and Dublin.
But then in my early 30's, my energy levels started to drop over a period of about 6 months. Sociable, active and out-going, I enjoyed life to the full, yet I couldn't understand how this was happening. From someone who woke up before the alarm clock, yes a morning person! I suddenly had to drag myself out of bed and with that my lifestyle changed. I started to drink more caffeine, crave chocolate and sugary foods. My body craved stimulants to keep me going! Little did I know back then that this was only making things worse and driving my body into what's termed "adrenal fatigue" and exhaustion.
After several visits to my GP I was diagnosed with M.E. (a complex chronic health condition). My digestive system was on a go slow, and I developed food intolerances that I never had. It was only when I started a 3 year Diploma in Nutritional Therapy that I began to put all the pieces of the jigsaw together and learn about the important role and connection between each of our body systems, that become imbalanced with ill health. I learnt from science based research how nutritious foods can help to nourish and energise our unique body systems and cells. I also learnt about functional medicine tests available privately to find out more about what was causing my ill health at a biochemical level. Overtime I regained my full health, and have never looked back! What I also found interesting is that the body also knows how to heal itself, if you give it the right environment to heal i.e. manage stress (emotional), build in more rest periods and learn to pace more.
The whole experience was life changing, so much so that I left my career in marketing to set up my own nutrition and health clinic in Kilkenny in 2012. In October 2016 I joined the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health in Bray as a course co-ordinator, lecturer and supervisor for student nutrition clinics. Currently due to COVID-19 I am seeing clients online only by skype or zoom if you have your own account.
I regularly give nutrition talks to community groups and companies and I work with VHI Corporate Solutions as one of their nutrition consultants.
My special areas of interest include: fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome (M.E.), adrenal fatigue, digestive problems (IBS, SIBO, food intolerances) and weight loss.
