I am a registered nutritionist with about 20 years’ experience in public health and international nutrition with principal focus on maternal and infant and child health. I have worked in the UK, Africa and Latin America in community and hospital settings, including paediatric, maternity wards and nutrition rehabilitation centres for moderate and severe malnutrition.I have also supported the emergency recovery phase among refugees in Greece, as a manager of a small NGO and infant and young child feeding advisor. My work has involved project management, training and coaching health and nutrition workers, teaching, health promotion, liaising with government health ministries, NGOs and UN agencies. In 2016, i completed a specialist breastfeeding course and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), that I successfully revalidated in 2021. In March 2022, I completed a course in midwifery studies leading to a diploma in higher education in midwifery studies. These two courses enabled me to gain further skills and competences in maternal and infant health, strengthening her infant/child feeding specialism.
