Rowena trained at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, completing their 3-year Nutrition Consultant’s Course in September 1999. She went on to build a general nutrition practice at Neal’s Yard Remedies in Salisbury and has recently opened another clinic in Tisbury.

Rowena is a Foresight practitioner, helping couples with fertility problems and also has a special interest in sports nutrition, having worked with amateur enthusiasts, club athletes and elite international athletes. She has been a tutor for the nutritional therapy courses offered by BCNH and Premier International and this year has started lecturing for the nutrition course at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in Bristol. Locally she has worked with the Wiltshire NHS chronic fatigue support group, runs healing food lunches and gives regular talks. She collaborated on research and recipe development for five of 'The Food Doctor' books and also contributes to radio interviews and writes regular magazine articles.

Rowena came to nutrition from a lifelong interest in good food and ran a successful catering business before qualifying as a nutritional therapist.
