I won #SBS the month that I decided to leave my NHS post and launch my business full-time. Winning really boosted my confidence and my profile on social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Since winning I have been able to network with some other brilliant #SBS winner who have been a real encouragement and I can't wait for more!
My business has grown and I am now know as a specialist in my field, being contacted by the Media and the local NHS services to give advice and help.
Dietitian UK was launched in 2005, but Priya has only been working as a freelance dietitian on a part time basis, alongside her NHS post in Eating Disorders. In 2012 having had a baby girl, Priya decided it was time to take the plunge and leave the stability and security of the NHS, going full-time into being a business lady.
Priya runs Dietitian UK, a nutrition and dietetic business. Dietitian UK provides individual support to people wanting dietary help with weight loss, eating disorders, IBS, food allergies and more. Priya believes good nutrition is essential to health.
Priya also works with a number of companies and businesses helping provide credible nutrition advice and PR messages for their brands that are evidence based. If you are a food company you need a dietitian!
As a lively, passionate person Priya also works a lot of with media helping promote the right nutritional messages. As a mum Priya advises other mums on weaning and children's nutrition and is often found in the kitchen concocting new, tasty, healthy family recipes.
Priya is also a Pilates instructor and runs Pilates with Priya (www.pilateswithpriya.co.uk) providing small, friendly and personal Pilates classes to her local community.
Let your passion for life shine through.
Make friends with others in your field and learn from them.
Build in enough time to REST (I'm learning this one).
