Where it all began….
Growing up in the Zambian countryside, with a mother who had a restaurant and a dad who was a health and science fanatic, good food and a love for science was instilled into Linia at a very young age.
Fast forward to university, Linia had intentions of pursueing a career in medicine, however whilst completing a BSc in Biochemistry & Physiology in Capetown, South Africa, she shadowed a number of dietitians and Linia immediately knew she had found her thing. Another few degrees later (Msc Nutrition & Dietetics & a MSc Sports Nutrition), Linia began her career in 2006 in London.
Having also worked extensively in high performance sport Linia is all about helping people thrive from the inside out. She is particularly passionate about women’s health and spends her clinical time working with women (athletes, non-athletes and everything in between) helping them to better understand the powerful connection between how their body works and how to be the best version of themselves.
Linia does not take a “one size fits all” approach but sees everyone as an individual, helping them to get the results they want through a variety of methods centred around one that suits them the best.
Outside of work Linia is a big foodie and loves to socialise over good (and nutritious!) food. She likes to keep active which means she gets to put into practice what she preaches.
