WHY DID YOU PURSUE YOUR FIELD? The result of a personal journey. I struggled with my own weight journey and deeply desired to help others in a similar position and started studying nutrition off the back of that.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK AT BODYMATTERS? Luck really. I was looking for industry relevant experience especially given my own story and I found BodyMatters through a Facebook group where Sarah contacted me directly.
