What is your job?
I’m a ‘Sports Dietician’ at GSK. I give advice on nutrition and supplements and am responsible for body composition assessment, which means that I analyse athletes’ fat, bone, water and muscle percentages and can work out what would help each individual perform at their best.
How did you choose your career?
At school, I knew I wanted to study something health related. After my degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics I specialised in sport. This job at GSK has allowed me to have a career in sports nutrition and do something I love.
What do you like best about your job?
Every day, I learn new things and work on something I love. I get to work in a big team with lots of specialists and I also get to work with brilliant athletes and explorers!
What’s your next goal?
My goal at the moment is to do a PhD and stay involved in research in nutrition and sport as long as possible.
What’s your advice for budding scientists?
Keep updated: STEM education never stops and you will never stop discovering new things!
