A bit about me…. the boring stuff

I am a Registered Nutritionist and until 2022, I worked in the catering industry as a nutrition consultant, mainly working with chefs in schools to ensure children were getting a nutritious, well balanced diet. Prior to becoming a nutritionist, I worked in various management roles for the John Lewis Partnership. As for now, I am currently working at Millstream every Friday, supporting Lyndsay and our fantastic team of volunteers. 


Key skills

Providing support to the management team, as well as using my nutrition experience on all food related matters, particularly food safety and health and safety. 


More about me …the Important Stuff 

I moved to Benson in 2005 with my husband and 2 young sons. I enjoy being involved in the community and in 2010, I put my passion for running together with a desire to encourage others to lead healthier lives, and founded Benson Striders, the village running club. 

I still enjoy running as well as yoga, walking my dog in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside and trying out new recipes on my family.


At Millstream…

I joined the centre as a volunteer at the end of 2022 and enjoyed it so much that I quickly became involved as a support manager. I am still part of the management team, as well as being a member of the Events and Fundraising Group. I have also used my nutrition experience to provide a cooking skills course for our customers and local residents.
