Having achieved a first-class degree in Psychology (BSc), with a specific research focus on eating behaviour, Gina has gone on to study for an Msc in Nutrition & Behaviour. Her mission is to combine nutrition and psychology, as our nutrition doesn’t only impact our physical health, but is also linked to our psychological, emotional and social wellbeing.
Gina’s love for food has seen her cook and develop recipes in a variety of settings including major supermarket Waitrose and nursing homes, where she gained a keen interest in nutrition across the lifespan. She has also run workshops and cooking lessons for community projects in India and in schools in the UK.
Gina uses her Instagram page @ginashappykitchen to share evidence-based information about food and psychology, as well as to encourage happy and healthy relationships with food.
