Hey, I’m Lucy, and I founded the Nutrition Graduates Facebook group back in February 2020 after feeling like a bit of an imposter in the ‘professional’ nutritionist groups. I graduated in September 2019 and wanted to create a space where others at the start of their career could connect and support each other⁣

In my current job, I specialise in Diabetes and support those with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes with one to one consultations. ⁣

I’m looking forward to seeing how much this group can grow and I’m so grateful for all of your support and positive feedback so far!!

I’m Amber Davey and I graduated with a BSc in Nutrition and Food Science from Reading University in 2018 and an MSc in Global Public Health Nutrition from Westminster in 2021. I’m from a small town in Leicestershire and a massive foodie, I love baking and often make celebration cakes for family and friends. 

 

I joined the NG team a few months after I met Lucy at a virtual networking chat during the summer of 2020 and when she posted in the NG Facebook group asking for a helping hand I definitely knew I wanted to contribute in some way. There is so much power in networking, without Lucy I wouldn't be in the job I have today, so I'll always be grateful for that. I’m currently working in Tier 2 weight management in Coventry and currently lead on nutrition training for the team. 

 

Leaving uni and entering the working world is always a daunting experience. I had no clue what I wanted to do or how to gain experience after graduating from my first degree however after trying a couple of different roles and networking with other nutritionists in different fields things began to get clearer!

 

Nutrition Graduates aims to make the transition from student to professional much smoother and I’m so grateful to be a part of a great network of people!

I'm Charlotte Lily, and I have a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition, Exercise and Health from Plymouth University. I joined Lucy's team a few months after she founded Nutrition Graduates, and in that time I've made so many incredible connections, produced and hosted a season of the Nutrition Graduates Journal Club, and am now immensely  proud to be heading our 18-strong team of regional representatives across England and Scotland. 

 

I'm currently working as a freelance nutritionist (ANutr) assisting clients with weight management and also on a voluntary basis with The Lords Taverners Charity, Wicketz, where I teach their development officers how to deliver Sugar Smart and healthy eating workshops to children of low socio-economic background. 

 

Nutrition Graduates is an incredible group, and one that I wish had existed when I was a student. The community that Lucy has created is like no other that existed before - we embody the saying "Behind every strong woman, is a tribe of other strong women who have her back".

I’m Heather and I have a BSc in Applied Food and Nutrition. I’ve been part of the admin team since February 2021.

Food has always been an important factor in my life, mainly because I was diagnosed with coeliac disease as a child. I used to think having to live gluten free was a real problem and whilst it can still be challenging, there were two main positives that came out of it. Firstly, I developed a passion for working with food and secondly, being coeliac turned out to be useful for my career. At present, I work as the Food Information Officer for Coeliac UK and I love the fact I have a role in supporting the gluten free community. 

Nutrition Graduates has provided me with a lot support. Since covid began, I've been particularly grateful for the connections the group has provided (especially when trying to find work!). I would encourage anyone to advantage of opportunities within the nutrition field. These experiences are never wasted and the connections you gain may prove extremely useful for your career!
