Kirsten Chick

Author of Nutrition Brought to Life, I've been a nutritional therapist for 17 years, have taught nutrition for 15 years, and have been writing about nutrition throughout that whole time. I also co-present North & Chick, a podcast about food, community and wellbeing - with holistic chef and food educator Hayley North, plus guests who nourish their community in some way. I have run many cookery workshops, nutrition workshops and retreats in the past, and still run regular nutrition workshops and courses online. I write all of the content for these myself, and have also written content for the nutrition, holistic living and pathophysiology modules I teach to degree students at East Sussex College. For a number of years I was a Nutrition Consultant for Nutrigold Ltd, which involved writing and presenting regular nutrition webinars, writing blogs and copy for their printed magazine, and writing content for educational courses, such as their fertility and pregnancy course and Nutriton Advisor qualification. I have written articles and blogs for numerous local, regional and national magazines.
