WHO WE ARE
As mothers of children who have been diagnosed with Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, Nicole and Stacey were frustrated by the lack of awareness and understanding of ARFID both within the medical community and public, so in January of 2019, decided to take the positive step of creating a “bricks and mortar” not-for-profit that would work on behalf of individuals, parents and medical professionals to provide both groups with up-to-date relevant information, research and support.
Chair & Co-Founder
Nicole is mum to a young ARFID warrior and a Brand Planner/Strategy Director with 16 years experience working in both the UK and Australia across a number of the world’s most globally recognised brands.
Nicole holds an MSc in Media & Communications and is excited to be applying her career-long skillset to something which she hopes will improve lives and make a positive difference in the world.
Secretary & Co-Founder
Stacey is a mum of 3 whose middle son developed ARFID at about 18 months of age. Stacey has worked in the field of HR where she has over 20 years of experience working in professional services and outsourcing. She has a 2:1 in Psychology Bsc and went on to be awarded her MCIPD in 2004.
Stacey is very much looking forward to trying to make the path to diagnosis and treatment easier for future families whilst continuing to support her own family and others through the daily struggles that ARFID brings.
