She studied at London Metropolitan University in England and her clinical research, “Thermogenesis, Obesity and the Macro-metabolic Pathways: Relation to Obesity”, was published in 2004 in the Journal of the British Dietetic Association as one of the best clinical trials among young graduates in the UK.

She received a MSc in Clinical Nutrition and Immunology from the University of Surrey in England with an emphasis on dietary support and behaviour modification in patients with immune system disorders.

Her professional career as a clinical dietitian at Newcastle upon Tyne and North Tees University hospitals enabled her to practice as a Senior Dietitian at the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology. She was responsible for the allergy and immunology clinics.

She currently works out of her private practice based in Greece with a special interest in evidence-based-plant based diets and holds the eCornell Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition.
