Helen spent her first career as an Engineer with British Airways, rising to Senior Manager.
Having lost one close member of her family to chronic disease she was inspired to study nutrition when another close family member overcame a dire prognosis through dietary changes and supplementation. After gaining a first class degree in Nutritional Therapy Helen established herself in two busy private clinics seeing clients with a range of disorders, before joining the clinic team at The Optimum Health Clinic and in time becoming Director of Nutrition. In her spare time, Helen runs healthy eating evening classes, is a subeditor of a journal for nutritional therapists and she also lectures to degree level in nutrition.
Helen is known for her tenacity and determination to get to the root of a problem, always done with a sense of humour and lightness of touch which can help make the process enjoyable.
