About Joanna

My Story

 

 

You are most likely to find me in the kitchen, baking or cooking and adding my own special touches to recipes! I have always been a keen cook from a young age and have passion for helping people live a healthier life through diet. Becoming a registered Dietitian was the perfect solution to combine both my passions.

 

Since qualifying in 2004 I have worked as a Specialist Dietitian at Kings College Hospital, one of London’s largest teaching hospitals and developed and led their specialist Haemato-oncology cancer service. 


I am also a mum of 3 so completely understand the need to provide healthy, tasting meals and fast!

 

So, what has led me here?  The media is constantly swamped with information about cancer and nutrition, so it can be really difficult to separate the fact from the fiction.

 

I understand that during cancer treatment and beyond is a scary time and you just want to make the right decisions for you and your health. I am really passionate about getting the correct info out there to help you optimise your health and nutrition whatever stage of your cancer pathway. 

I help cancer survivors to improve their diet and relationship with food during and after treatment, to reduce cancer reoccurrence.
