After working as a marketing consultant for six years, I decided to change career and studied Food and Human Nutrition at Newcastle University. I became a registered nutritionist in 2003 and I got involved in international nutrition in 2004 with my first trip to Peru. Due to family commitment I was unable to do regular fields trips therefore concentrated in leading or participating in various public health and clinical projects in the UK, many involving children. In 2009 another field opportunity arose and I spent three months in Malawi assisting the Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre and the paediatric ward of a hospital in the North of the country. This was followed with more field trips: in 2012 to Guinea Bissau where I led a Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre for children with moderate acute malnutrition; in 2013 to Malawi where I worked in the paediatric department of a large tertiary hospital, especially in the Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre for children with severe acute malnutrition and the paediatric nursery for children under six months, and in 2014 I was invited back to lead the Baby Friendly Initiative for the same large tertiary hospital in the South of the country. These assignments have enabled me to expand my knowledge and skills in the prevention and treatment of SAM, MAM, management of acute malnutrition in infants less than 6 months and IYCF interventions.
