My name is Ellen Storm and I am a practicing paediatrician (children's doctor) working across North Wales and the North-West of England. I have been 'vegetarian' (occasional fish) since the age of eight, vegan for 13 years and increasingly high raw for ten years. I have a bachelor of science degree in biomedical sciences and a primary medical qualification from St George’s Hospital Medical School (SGHMS) in London, membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH), a master’s degree in public health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and a masters degree in creative writing from Lancaster University. I am certified in plant-based nutrition from eCornell University, 2023 will be my 5th year attending the UK FruitFest organised by Ronnie Smith and supported by Doug (author of The 80/10/10 Diet) and Rosalind Graham, and I am the author of the forthcoming book Diseases Have Causes: One Doctor’s Journey with an Apple and a Pen. In relation to diet and nutrition I have personal special interests in women’s and children’s health and in food addiction, attachment and trauma. I am the mother of twin girls and the primary carer for Peanut Butter, Daniel and Marzipan (the guinea pigs!) and Autumn and Banana (the fish!).
