My story in health & well-being began over 10 years ago. I was in my late twenties when I knew I wasn’t truly content. Having travelled and worked in IT for over 10 years, the hours were long and demanding and something needed to change. I thought about what I loved, what lit me up and what was I passionate about. I packed up IT and took a career break in 2020 to get some clarity and decide what to do next with my life.

After years of dabbling in nutrition and health as a hobby I decided to change career from Construction Economist to Nutritional Therapist! Pursuing your dream can be challenging but I knew that my life depended on making that move to better physical and mental health.
I’m Jamie originally from Dublin. I graduated from IHS as a Nutritional Therapist in November 2021. I completed my undergraduate degree in Business & Economics from Trinity College and am currently working as an Associate Director at an Irish recruitment agency where I am responsible for Marketing and staff wellbeing.
My journey to becoming a Nutritional Therapist started in 2015, when I left a 20-year career in Marketing and Product Management to embark on a new path. All I knew, at that point, was that I wanted this path to be connected to food. Food and cooking were always my personal go-to strategies to de-stress. Tinkering in the kitchen and having time to prepare and eat something simple but delicious just made me feel good.

"My journey to becoming a Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach started in 2011 when I worked in a large, fast-paced corporation. I worked hard and played harder. Sure, I enjoyed the variety but the stress often made me feel emotionally and physically drained. At that point, my efforts to look after myself were sporadic and ineffective at best.

Hi – I’m Leanne. I chose to study with IHS as I loved how broad the course was, the range of topics interested me and I liked the focus on science but in a welcoming way. I think it is important that IHS is accredited and is third party checked by Crossfields Institute, so you know that you are held to a high standard of work.
