Fionnula began to pursue her love of science by studying Medicine at Trinity College Dublin, during which time she secured prestigious research posts at the University of Ulster, Regenerative Medicine Institute in Galway, the University of Miami and the illustrious Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. She went on to work in a variety of fields including Orthopaedic Surgery, Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Psychiatry. However, Fionnula’s passion lies in healthcare, how to achieve health, how to maintain health and ultimately how to optimize existing health; health as a positive entity, rather than simply the absence of disease. Enthralled by her studies with the Institute for Functional Medicine, she now runs her own private Functional Medicine Clinic in Dublin City Centre and lectures extensively in Universities and private colleges in Ireland.
