She has more than 10 years experience in Further Education Lecturing, which includes course co-ordination, internal verification, assignment verification and all other course administration.
Kim understands and is very passionate about the fundamentally important connection between health, food & community, and in educating others.
She is now full-time, self-employed running food events, courses, workshops, demonstrations and especially enjoys having the opportunity to teach young people hands-on cookery skills and nutrition information. Community work is at the core of these workshops and Kim has delivered courses for the Cedar Foundation, Active Communities, The Education Authority, Colin Neighbourhood Partnership, Urban Villages and The Strategic Partnership Board.
Kim is currently completing a Diploma in Culinary Medicine - the first of its kind in the UK - this integrates the very latest in nutritional science with practical culinary skills and this approach will lead the way we approach health, wellness, nutrition and cookery in years to come.
