I qualified as a dietitian in 2010 and joined the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Nutrition and Dietetic Department in 2014. Prior to my Daisy Garland Ketogenic role, the majority of my paediatric experience has been working within the specialist diabetes and allergy teams. I feel privileged to be a Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitian, and work in area where dietary modification can significantly impact a child’s development and a family’s quality of life. I enjoy teaching and empowering families to self-manage the diet. I like that ketogenic 
diet therapy is an evolving area; the number of research publications has significantly increased over recent years. I am a member of the British Dietetic Association, including the Paediatric Specialist Group, The Health Care and Professions Council and the Ketogenic DietRese
arch Network. I am particularly passionate about families receiving safe and evidence-based nutritional information whilst raising the profile of this important dietary therapy.
Thank you to The Daisy Garland Charity and supporters for funding this post and providing the opportunity to further develop the Sheffield Children's Hospital Ketogenic Diet service.
