A recent divorcee, she had to adjust to life on significantly reduced means. She worked by day, and studied at night and qualified as an accountant in 2006. Her love of cooking and entertaining, and her knowledge of doing so on a tight budget, led her to found the Shrewd Food website, with her son, in 2009. It has generated a huge response from enthusiastic foodies, both in Ireland and abroad.Shrewd Food is her first book.
