My current business Stem + Glory grew from a lifelong passion for plant based foods. Both from a cooking perspective (I love to cook!) and a desire to help people lead healthier and more compassionate lives. I really do believe that the future is plant based and the environmental messages …

After studying History at university, I spent 8 years working as a Sales and Marketing Manager for Procter & Gamble. I loved the company and was passionate and ambitious. However, we had our first child in 2003, and my priorities soon changed. I always knew that I wanted to at least try to achieve that perfect balance of work and home, if anything so I could at least avoid the ‘what if’ scenario. And so, after a year at home with our son, I went back to work 3 days …

My husband Dave and I, lived away from family so childcare was always a problem.
