I have worked in the field of health and social care for over 20 years. Initially I worked as a fitness instructor and personal trainer in a number of health clubs. I then moved to the NHS where I worked in the public health department and was responsible for developing child and adult weight management programmes where I specialised in physical activity, nutrition and behaviour change. I also worked as part of a specialist obesity team with patients prior to obesity surgery. I spent several years working for Liverpool John Moores University as a health behaviour mentor on their childhood obesity intervention GOALS. After leaving the NHS I entered the field of education and worked as a Health and Social Care and PHSE teacher in a secondary Academy.
