"The most rewarding part of my role is getting to know families and children as they grow up. Food is such an important part of everybody's lives and understanding food is such a large part of managing Diabetes. I enjoy dispelling some of the myths surrounding food and helping children and young people to manage their diabetes and stay healthy, while eating food they enjoy!"
