About me

I am a two time Commonwealth Games representative, and current Scottish pole vault record holder, I have been competing as an international athlete for the last 15 years. As such I understand the huge potential good nutrition holds to make life changing differences in health and performance. Nutrition was a huge part of my recovery from a dark period of time that included 2 probable career ending injuries, which also involved sleep and gut problems.

Once I understood how out of balance my body was, nutrition gave me a solid foundation on which to build and get the most out of my training.

I realised that my body wasn't letting me down, but I was letting my body down. In actual fact injured, training or dis-eased, your body is doing incredible things every day to keep you going, it really is the most amazing instrument.

Alongside my love of good food, this has manifested in me a passion for passing on the understanding of just how astonishing the human body is, and how powerful and simple good nutrition can be.

I don't specialise in any one area but alongside my concern for fundamental athlete health I do have a particular interest in gut health, as this is, in my opinion, the gateway to proper function in every other area of the body. This said my passion remains in the power of food itself, and this can be applied to any set of symptoms or health goal.
