Personalised nutrition has the power to transform lives and Daisy is eager to share this message far and wide, albeit in 1:1 clinical setting or through 1-to-many keynote speaking events. Daisy is passionate about making nutritional therapy accessible, engaging and a first port of call for anyone wishing to optimise how they feel.
During lock down Daisy co-founded Community Immunity – a not-for-profit initiative delivering nutrient targeted foods to those most vulnerable. At a time when panic buying stripped the shelves of pasta and crisps, Daisy was leveraging local restaurant supply chains to deliver fresh produce to isolating individuals in the community.
Prior to pursuing a career in nutrition, Daisy was a partner in an international commercial real estate consultancy. Daisy is also a proud parent to 3 young children and is consequently realistic in her approach to how best affect healthful change in the context of family life.
