I am an Allergy Specialist dietitian, helping families to manage food allergies; from Food Protein Enterocolitis Syndrome, Eosinophilic Gastro-intestinal diseases, other non-IgE mediated food allergies and IgE mediated food allergies. On this website and in these blogs, I hope to share some of my knowledge with you to make life with food allergies just a little bit easier.
Over the past few years, I have been involved in allergy prevention guidelines in the US and Europe and would love the chance to talk to you about all things allergy prevention.
I have had the wonderful opportunity of working in South Africa, the United Kingdom and in the United States. I am a registered as a dietitian (RD) in all these countries. I have been one of the founder members of the International Network of Dietitians and Nutritionists in Allergy. I am also a member of the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology (AAAAI), European Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) and the Allergy Society of South Africa (ALLSA).
I enjoy writing and I have had a number of publications in international journals. I regularly get invitations to present at in covering a range of topics relating to nutrition and allergic diseases.
I am forever indebted to the team at the David Hide Asthma and Allergy Centre on the Isle of Wight (UK) who has taught me so much…but I still learn every day from amazing families and colleagues around the world.
