Biography and favorites


I had absolutely no interest in food until my son Tim was diagnosed with autism in 2004. Despite being challenged by even making a packet cake and despite the fact that Tim ate only 5 foods which would all have to go, I began a gluten and casein free diet that quite literally changed his life. My beautiful boy is now a typically functioning, happy and healthy 14 year old. I firmly believe that dietary intervention was the foundation of his recovery and I’m passionate about working with other families to assist them in experiencing the same transformation that my family did.


My clients come to me because they are concerned about their child’s eating, sleeping and behavioural challenges. They understand that dietary changes can help autism and ADHD but don’t know what foods they should and shouldn’t eat and how to make changes to their diet . To solve these problems, I offer nutritional advice and practical support. I’m on a mission to transform the lives of families living with Autism & ADHD. I KNOW that dietary changes can have a significant impact and I believe that all children should have the chance to experience better health and happiness.


  • I absolutely love to travel, eat out, read non fiction books
  • and go to the movies.
