I am a Senior Paediatric Dietitian in a Children’s Hospital in Dublin for nearly 10 years. In September 2016, having had my own two children, I started www.weaning.ie.
On completing my B.Sc at NUIG, in 2004 I graduated with an M.Sc Dietetics from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. I worked with the adult population for 4 years and in 2008 followed my dream to work with children. I have worked in many different areas of childhood nutrition including Weight management, Infant feeding, Metabolic Disorders and Type 1 Diabetes.
A healthy lifestyle begins at home, in infancy. With this in mind I established 'weaning.ie'. I provide theory based nutrition classes to parents. The aim being to empower parents to prevent the nutritional problems of childhood, increase the success and reduce the stress in feeding a family.
I am a member of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute and registered with CORU.
