Alan Lugton

Business Development Manager & Organiser of Random Thoughts and Erratic Activity

What I wanted to be when I grew up:

I wanted to be an animator! I loved (and still love) drawing and thought of being able to make characters that move would be super cool.

What I studied:

I studied Biology at undergrad, then spent a couple of years working in Marketing. I soon realised my true passion was Nutrition and so went on to a Masters in Human Nutrition at the University of Surrey.

What I do at BeeZee Bodies:

I’m the Service Development Manager. I help make sure all our programmes are consistent across our different contracts and offers. I also work to make sure our services are evidence-based with behaviour change and nutrition info. I get to work with almost everyone at BeeZee Bodies to do my job – which is what I love the most!

What I like about working here:

The people. Everyone is so kind and helpful. We have lots of fun but also work really hard at something that means a lot to all of us

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

The one that I aspire to the most is ‘Be real’. In a culture where everyone is striving to appear perfect it is more helpful and important to be real about strengths and struggles. It helps build true relationships with everyone I work with. Changing lifestyles is complicated and asks a lot of people and practitioners. The more we encourage everyone to be real, the more able we are all to change.

Ellie Rogers

What do you like about working at BeeZee Bodies?

The best part of the job for me, is that I get to play a part in encouraging people to take that first step towards creating a healthier and happier life for themselves! I love to think that the content I produce is breaking up the content on people’s instagram feeds with healthy and positive messages to inspire healthier behaviours! I also love being part of such a passionate, enthusiastic and KIND team.
And the dogs. We love dogs.

Rosie Crompton

Marketing Executive & Dancing Yogi

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up! I once thought about being a  Social Worker, so I could help the vulnerable but was put off by a friend who’s Mum was one, then RAF fighter jet pilot .. watched too much Top Gun! I just want to help people!

What did you study?

Life experience! It’s an adventure in progress, gaining knowledge and learning more about the world , myself and my potential .  After 25 yrs in 2018 I went back to studying to gain a CIPD HR qualification, which crushed that fear of your never too old to re-train.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

My Role is Administrator & First Impressions – I work in the Herts Office, I get to talk to parents and carers and tell them all about the brilliant Beezee Families programmes and then sign them up to their local programme. I also make sure the office runs smoothly along with administrative tasks, and assist Stu on some of his tasks .

What do you like about working at BeeZee Bodies?

I love it , I get to work along side a great team & dogs! Everyone works so hard and are really passionate to help people make changes and help them to achieve it and the biggest bonus is we make sure we have fun doing it!! Never thought I’d be back on roller skates after so many years!!

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

Be Real … I find it hard to be someone I’m not, I can relate and empathise with the person on the end of the phone as a woman with a weight issue and a Mum with an ASD Child whom has attended BeeZee  Families. I  know how hard that phone call was to make, and by making it non judgemental it eliminates that fear and helps that person or family overcome the real issue.

Marie Fenemore

Administration & First Impressions

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a Video Game Designer or Tester or a journalist, haha. I loved the creativity of these things as well as doing something that would make someone else happy.

What did you study?

I studied Philosophy Undergraduate at Bristol and then decided to try and get into Event Management. This then became Events Administration and right now I am exploring what the world of Administration holds.

What do you do at BeeZee bodies?

I help out with first impressions calls and other general administrative duties, though I also currently play a part in helping out other teams and learning how best to support them in their tasks moving forward.

Which BZ Value describes you best?

Be Passionate! It is infectious and you see the best of people when you talk to them about what they love. It’s the closest we can get to travelling to alternate dimensions, because the perspectives and experiences can be so different. I believe this ability to inspire is key to growth and positive change, since you are the average of the people you surround yourself with. So surround yourself with passionate people!

Amy Smith

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I also help find clubs for children and their families to join something that they enjoy doing.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

Be Passionate – I’ve always had an interest in health and fitness, so I’m very passionate about being able to help families achieve the challenges they set each week to become healthier as a family together.

What I like about working here:

Every day really is an adventure! I don’t always know how the day will go, but I can always count on it being lots of fun! The people I’m lucky enough to interact with every day are really amazing!

If I could take one of my colleagues to do something I love it would be:

I’d take the whole team to Canada in the middle of the winter to go skiing and to show them what cold weather (-20 degrees!) actually feels like!

Charanpreet Gill

(Hertfordshire) Nutritionist & Proud Hufflepuff

What did you want to be growing up

I wanted to be a professional athlete – I didn’t care in which sport! I guess it’s nearly true as I now play lacrosse for Scotland!

What did you study to get here?

I studied Applied Sports Science as an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh. During my degree, I discovered my passion for nutrition so went on to study Human Nutrition (specialising in Obesity and Weight Management) at the University of Glasgow.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I am a Nutritionist based in Hertfordshire, working with families on BZ Live. Hopefully I’ll be able to work with these families face-to-face soon!

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

“Be courageous” – I am always up for trying new things and have never been afraid of failing! I feel that it’s important to have at least tried and failed than to have not tried at all, and I think that translates well into being a nutritionist. We don’t expect people to be perfect in any shape of form, we simply encourage people to be courageous in exploring different and realistic ways of improving health and well-being.

Hannah Whiteley

Lily Gibbens

(Hertfordshire) Nutritionist

…Looks like I havent filled this bit out yet – check back again another time

Amina Taki

(Hertfordshire) Nutritionist

What did you want to be growing up

I always wanted to be a librarian when I was little. I loved organising and tidying things and I especially loved it when the librarian had to stamp the book with the date !    I still love books and usually have at least two books I want to read.  I also enjoy language and am curious about where sayings come from.  All of us here at BeeZee Bodies like to have a good laugh together:  did you know that the phrase “In Stitches” comes from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night….written 400years ago!

What did you study to get here?

I completed my degree in Nutrition at the University of Hertfordshire in summer 2020, having completed a one year Access to Science course prior to that as my original A-Levels were not science related.  I studied English, French and German and have a degree in German and Business Studies from the University of Swansea.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I am a nutritionist working with families in Hertfordshire.  I am currently working on our online programmes and hope to get back to running sessions in person sometime soon.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

Be REAL. I think it’s really important to be honest and true with each other; and ourselves. If someone asks me a question I will answer it honestly.  It is much more likely that I will open up to a person who I feel is genuine in their feelings and opinions and I hold myself to that as well. A big part of me helping families to make meaningful changes is us building a relationship together; and that needs both us to be open and real.

Claire Wallek

(Hertfordshire) Nutritionist & Kitchen Dancing Queen

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a dancer or failing that a Tennis Player, although I think it was always going to be dancing as my Mum ran her own Dancing School. I started dancing there at the age of 3!

What did you study?

I studied Performing Arts at College in Sidcup, Kent. I then joined the University of Life. I did however decide to study Counselling Skills at North Herts College a few years ago. I’m also a qualified IDVA (Independent Domestic Violence Advocate)

What do you do at Beezee Bodies?

I am a Wellbeing Co-ordinator and Co-facilitator of the HENRY programme for 0-5 year olds.

Which one of our core values describes you best?

Be Passionate – Supporting and caring for people in whatever capacity that may be is in my DNA. I believe that it is important as human beings to connect with each other. The positive impact it has on our wellbeing cannot be underestimated. To be heard and feel valued, to laugh (most important one!), to cry and share our experiences with others enriches our lives.

 

 

Michelle Hampton

(Hertfordshire) Wellbeing Co-ordinator

What did you want to be growing up?

I never knew what I wanted to be when I was growing up, apart from being mega rich… (maybe one day…), so I just stuck with doing the things I enjoyed and that’s how I ended up in nutrition.

What did you study?

I studied BSc Nutrition and Food Science (with professional training) at the University of Reading. The professional training part involved spending a year living in the Netherlands and working for a flavour-house as Savoury Application Technologist!

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I am a nutritionist based in Hertfordshire working on the BeeZee families programme and BeeZee Lite.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

Be Courageous – I used to be extremely shy growing up and was petrified of talking to new people or trying new things. After taking a few big leaps (like moving abroad) and consistently pushing myself out of my comfort zone, it’s safe to say I’m definitely not shy anymore… Now you can’t shut me up :). I hope I can use this experience to help other people feel comfortable stepping outside of their comfort zone.

I wanted to be lots of different things including a police woman, a chef and a popstar, practicing loudly with a hairbrush around the house!

· What did you study?

I studied Biology as an undergraduate at Exeter University and spent the first part of my working life in the food industry, developing and launching new food products.

· What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

Sarah Kennedy

(Brighton) Nutritionist

What did you want to be growing up? 

 I wanted to be a chef and have my own famous restaurant, cooking and serving meals from all different cultures around the world. My dream of exploring different countries and learn about all the food and flavours is still in my heart! 

What did you study? 

I studied a bachelor’s degree in physical activity and nutrition at the University of Derby, thinking at first that I will become an absolute healthy life expert. That was a bit naïve, soon realising that simply ‘eat less move more’ does not fit easily into people’s complex lifestyles. I went on studying masters in nutrition and behaviour at Bournemouth Uni, discovering that psychology is often the missing element when supporting someone’s lifestyle journey. 

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies? 

I am one of the nutritionists, supporting the BeeZee Adult and Families programmes in Brighton. 

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?  

“Be courageous” – no matter how many excuses pop inside my head, I always end up taking the opportunity and trying new things, tasting new flavours, meeting new people, exploring new approaches. Cause that’s what life is about. Even if it’s a challenge, or if it ends up being an unpleasant experience, it moves you forward to a better place.   

 

Magda Slavikova

Freya Harrap

(Brighton) Nutritionist and Kimchi Ninja

What I wanted to be when I grew up: 

When I was younger I always wanted to be a fashion designer, but I soon realised that this involved a lot of drawing, which isn’t my best talent.  But I still keep my dream alive by making knit and crochet pieces in my spare time. 

 

What I studied: 

I studied Biomedical science for my undergraduate at the University of Brighton, but then realised my passion for Nutrition, so after working for a year in student recruitment, I studied for a Masters in Nutrition at King’s College London.

May Robertson

What did you want to be, growing up?

I really had no idea what I wanted to be when I was growing up – it changed every week – I just knew I wanted to travel.

What are your main Interests?

I have been interested in health and fitness all my life and have dabbled in many areas of wellbeing – being a bit of a course-a-holic – jack of all trades springs to mind!  And I love being active whether it be in my garden, walking, yoga, tap dancing or ballet.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I am a Referral Co-ordinator at BeeZee Bodies which means I talk to people when they contact the office and let them know about all the different things we do.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

I would say the core value that best describes me is “Be Empowering”. This is something I get chance to do in abundance when helping people book on a programme or when facilitating a group and in my daily life – I get a lot of pleasure from other people’s successes as well as my own.

 

Sue Littleford

(Brighton) Referral Co-ordinator & Gardening Goddess

What did you want to be growing up?

I was obsessed with Saturday morning kids TV (Live & kicking, The Saturday Show, SMTV live etc) and wanted to be the next Fearne Cotton, Cat Deeley or girl band member to feature on the show. My second job title fits in well (JukeBox Jude- I know most of the words to most of the songs in the top 40 singles chart since around 2003- guess the intro is my top skill!)

What did you study?

I originally studied politics and went on to study a masters Public Health Nutrition.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

I love all the core values of BeeZee Bodies but overall I align most with ‘be real’. In embracing our own strengths and weaknesses and acting with integrity, we can encourage others to do the same. It is in this space that true connections are made and people can really thrive individually, or as part of a team.

Jude Duffy

BeeZee Live Service Manager & JukeBox Jude

I went through different dreams including being a ballerina (much too short and stocky), a footballer (not many women footballers around then) and finally a nurse which I achieved!

I nursed for 3 years before realising it wasn’t for me. Inspired by my family background I went to university and trained to be a social worker, gaining a degree in Applied Social Science.  I worked as a social worker in London for 15 years and then moved to family support and mental health services.  Before coming to BeeZee Bodies I worked in international development with a children’s charity.

Be empowering – This has been the theme that has run through my career, I love supporting people to believe that they can achieve their dreams, hopes and ambitions.  It is wonderful to see what changes can be achieved when people have the confidence to try something new, and to persist if things don’t go right at first.

Courageous is the value that best describes me, as I am very up for trying jumping in and trying new things and not too bothered about making a fool of myself!

Danielle Stephens

(Gloucestershire) Nutritionist

What I wanted to be growing up

From an early age I loved making things, especially clothes for my Sindy dolls. My parents/grandparents thought it would be good for me to become a teacher. So, I stayed away from that profession! I’m also rebellious.

Either a fashion designer or aircraft hostess were jobs I contemplated but eventually became a Tailor and then a soft toy designer 😊

What did you study / interests

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I’m the Implementation Officer, so I work closely with Stu to make sure his ‘Head of Distraction’ role doesn’t dominate the things he actually needs to get done in his ‘CEO’ role…it’s an interesting role!

Which one of the core values best describes you and why?

All the BeeZee Bodies values resonate with me, but if I had to choose one I’d go for ‘Passionate’. Part of the reason I chose to do study Public Health was because I wanted to understand the theoretical side of how to improve people’s health and I am passionate about applying this in the real world. I’m super excited to be a part of an organisation that helps people make changes towards healthier, and ultimately happier lives.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why ?

Courageous: Between travelling to America to complete my undergraduate internship to coach football as well as moving out of Dublin to England to complete my MSc in Nutrition and pursuing a job in this area, possessing courage was almost a pre-requisite! I try to show courage as much as possible, for example, moving into a new city and living completely on my own!

Up to around 12 years old I wanted to be a hairdresser. For a short while I also wanted to be an astronaut.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

I’m an NCMP Co-ordinator. I am responsible for calling families who receive the National Child Measurement Programme to check they received their letter, check if they have any questions, see if they need any support and talk
about the services that are available to support them in their area.

Which one of the core values best describes you and why

All five of the core values best describe me so it’s hard to choose one, but for the sake of this profile I will say ‘Be Real‘.

In order to make change in life and grow, mentally and emotionally, it’s essential to be real; that’s open, honest and true to oneself. Change only happens when you’re honest about the roadblocks, the stumbles, and the falls. So whether I’m supporting others through change or pushing myself towards change it’s so important to ditch the fake, the lies, the excuses, and just be real.

NCMP Co-ordinator and Chief Tea Drinker

What did you want to be growing up?

I always wanted to be an explorer, whether in a jungle, under the sea, or on the moon! Whilst it’s not my career now, if I’m not working, you’ll always see me exploring someplace new.

What did you study to get here?

I completed a BSc in Medical Physiology then went on to complete an MSc in Human Nutrition. My experience has given me an understanding of humans from the level of molecules and cells, right up to the level of communities and cultures.

What do you do at BeeZee Bodies?

Be Passionate – I resonate with this value the most as I am incredibly enthusiastic and excited about the work I do and the direction Beezee Bodies is headed.
