I’m on the committee with Save Our Shoreline Jersey (SOSJ) as their environmental scientist. My work is pro bono. With respect to commenting on SOSJ and other environmental issues, I make occasional, but regular, appearances on Radio Jersey, BBC TV (Channel Islands), Channel 103, Channel News and in the Jersey Evening Post and occasional UK newspapers. TV appearances always seem to coincide with windy or wet conditions!
Parents with young children
Brighter Futures: I have been working with Brighter Futures to produce and run Jersey’s first Parent Champions groups.
Jersey Dairy: I have been working with Jersey Dairy with my marketing hat on, but initially on a nutritional consultant basis.
I’m a qualified nutritionist, with distinctions throughout, and nutritional writer. Clients tend to be those who want to shift some weight and gain energy. I’m currently studying for an additional diploma on eating disorders.
Jersey Evening Post opinion writer: Once I declared I was going to stand in the election, the JEP rules mean I could not carry on writing a column for them any longer. It’s a shame, as I’ve enjoyed writing my pieces on nutrition (and the surrounding issues) for them, but you can read some of the ones I did here – they are all still relevant now.
Books: I’m currently writing a book on weight loss and energy gain (details later), and one about recovering from type 2 diabetes, which will be released on Kindle in the first instance. I have ghost-written a number of books and ebooks, and have some Kindle ones in my name. (If you have a look, be aware they all need updating to 2nd editions!)
Courses: I’ve written a number of courses for others and some that I’ve run myself. Currently, I’m preparing a Parent Champions course (see Brighter Futures above), but have also presented them on aspects of SEO (getting seen online, in essence) and writing (many aspects).
