Meet Fig & Bloom below: Stephanie Ridley (Registered Nutritional Therapist), BSc (Hons) DipNT BANT CNHC I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist with a degree in Nutrition and a diploma in Nutritional Therapy. Having worked for seven years as a personal trainer and then in contract publishing, I decided to change direction and follow my true passion in life – nutrition. Juggling my degree, job and two pregnancies was a challenge but proved my dedication! After graduating I worked as a tutor at BCNH College of Nutrition & Health before setting up my own private nutrition consultancy called Nourish to Flourish. Dorothy Barrick | Holistic Chef | Recipe Developer I am a self-taught chef who loves nothing more than experimenting in the kitchen for hours. After a career as a model followed by fashion design, my interests turned to food. Having cooked for myself, and others, from the age of 16, meeting my partner who has ankylosing spondylitis really got me wondering if there was a way to health and healing through food. I started taking classes on raw foods, experimenting with baking gluten-free, fermentation and gut health recipes and many plant-based try outs. Caroline Flower | Commercial Director I started my career as a fresh and frozen food buyer in the contract catering industry. After seven years, I took an opportunity to move into project management and then management consultancy, delivering IT, procurement and cost reduction projects. Most recently I worked in corporate finance advising clients on complex post-merger integration programmes in financial services, manufacturing and retail sectors. The mix of business, finance, planning and communication skills I've picked up over the years is invaluable for my role with Fig & Bloom, which pretty much includes everything not nutrition or cooking-related!
