They say these days we have 2-3 careers in our lifetime and for Erika that is true. Erika previously enjoyed a career in the corporate world as an IT professional. During this time she also became involved in endurance sports, enjoying training and participating in triathlons, cycling and swimming events. Through this new found passion and combined with a love of cooking, Erika developed a passion for learning how food and nutrition could support both overall health and sports performance. Being bombarded with so many different messages about what is “healthy” and “best” for us. Looking for a new challenge, Erika decided to pursue her passion and studied at university to become a certified and accredited Dietitian and Sports Dietitian.
