Consulting Dietitian to the food industry

Finding strong women to serve as mentors was one priority I had identified for my personal development portfolio for 2020, so I joined.

My first event was the Wild Way coffee networking night. WhenI looked around the room and heard the stories of the women in attendance, I truly felt an instant bond-these women emitted such a warmth, strength and resilience!
