My passion is our natural environment and how all aspects of the world around us influences all aspects of our health. This has led me to study nutritional and life style medicine from the ancient traditions of western herbal medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.
I am a Medical Herbalist and a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) having completed my degree in 2006. Since then I have graduated from the college of Naturopathic Medicine as a qualified Nutritional Therapist. I have completed training with the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) and a member of IFM. My training is important to me, I continuously update skills and knowledge. But, most importantly, I live what I have learned.
