"I worked with Vanessa in both her corporate business days and her changing-lives RD days and I can’t speak highly enough about her. She is fantastic to work with, always on top of things. She’s a strategic thinker and understands both her role and the wider landscape, whether that’s the industry she’s working in, or the latest in food science. She has a great understanding of people, which helps her engage with both business colleagues and patients, and she has a generosity of heart and a warmth that she brings to her work and makes her an incredible communicator. She’s also brilliantly focused on efficiency, she’s honest and open which helps get to the heart of any challenge and makes achievement of goals happen quickly and successfully. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
