Food has become complicated. My mission is to help consumers navigate through the issues.
I've always been interested in food. Before coming to CHOICE I lived overseas, working predominantly in hospitality when I wasn't travelling and eating my way through various cuisines. I also completed a Nutrition MSc at King's College London, and researched and wrote for our UK sister organisation, Which?
During my time working at CHOICE my core focus has been on food and nutrition – from reviewing breakfast cereals and fast food, to dispelling myths about the benefits of detox kits and wheatgrass juice or translating confusing food labels. And with the occasional taste test thrown in for good measure – sampling food is a definite perk of the job.
Now as a mum of three young children, my interest in good food and nutrition has only increased, but separating the good from the bad isn't always obvious. It shouldn't be the case, but food has become complicated. So my mission is to help consumers navigate through the issues.
