I love to cook and bake.  Happiness is filling my kitchen with delicious smells of freshly baked breads and all things home-cooked.  I adore pouring over recipe books to try and keep the menu interesting and healthy for my family and this feeds into my advice for patients

I am passionate about making a healthy lifestyle fun and achievable.  I live in a small, rural community and am a member of Fit4Life in my local running club Glenmore AC!  Every year, we run a healthy living programme in conjunction with the local secondary school Bush PP.

This has been a very successful community initiative and I get enormous satisfaction from seeingIMG_1307 people move from the couch to re-discovering the joy of being physically active and eating healthier.  Many of our participants join our Fit4Life group after the 6 week programme so it really helps them to make a change for life.

Check out this clip when RTE Operation Transformation came to visit our programme in January 2016!

We also had a visit from IrishTV Louth Matters who were keen to cover our local project.
