My personal journey

 

I wasn’t always in the nutrition field, and began my career in Finance at an investment bank.  As a young professional, I experienced frequent colds, digestive problems and fatigue. Natural medicine and dietary changes helped me to regain my health and good nutrition became a way of life.

 

After starting a family I spent more time researching health and nutrition, and developing nutrient dense recipes at home. My children grew up visiting farmers markets in HK and on our travels, learning to cook meals every weekend, and enjoying a diverse range of  nutrient dense whole foods.  They are now teenagers who sometimes joke about eating quinoa and kale, but appreciate the benefits of having healthy nutritious food. 

 

I decided pursue a Masters degree in nutrition to learn more about nutrition science and how to use food as medicine.  My degree is based on a functional medicine approach which looks at healing disease by addressing the root cause instead of just treating the symptoms.  I started Fresh Start to help others with their journey to better health and vitality through coaching, education, and providing practical personalised solutions.
