About Island Nutrition

Hannah Jones

MNutr (Master of Nutrition - Dietetics)

Founder, Managing Director and Chief Registered Dietitian at Island Nutrition


I am a UK qualified Registered Dietitian and Spouse of Bermudian. I obtained a Master of Nutrition (Dietetics) from the University of Nottingham in 2004. I am registered with the Health Professions Councils in Bermuda, the UK and Ireland. I have lived in Bermuda for many years and am married to a fantastic Bermudian and we have three fabulous children. I enjoy any activity that involves being outdoors including sailing, walking, running (slowly!) and gardening.

I founded Island Nutrition in September 2015, after seeing a need for more community-based Dietetic care locally. I have worked with a broad spectrum of patients during my career, both adult and paediatric (children), including weight management, morbid obesity (including pre- and post-bariatric clients), high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease (with and without dialysis), bowel disorders, reflux, coeliac disease, cystic fibrosis, failure to thrive, allergies/intolerances, oncology, modified textures for swallowing difficulties, nutrition support, home enteral feeding and home TPN. 

Although mainly in a management role these days, I love my work as a Registered Dietitian and am passionate about providing high quality nutritional care to clients, their families and health professionals to prevent and treat illnesses through diet and in a setting that is most appropriate to their needs.

As a Registered Dietitian I liaise with other agencies and health professionals (both acute and community based) to achieve optimal patient care e.g. GPs, other physicians, community nursing, financial assistance, schools, care homes and acute dietitians. I provide education and training sessions to a variety of people including staff at nursing and care homes, GPs and other health professionals.

I have experience in the development and implementation of large scale, city wide (population 466,000) care pathways and prescribing guidelines around malnutrition and a malnutrition screening tool.

In addition, I have a unique understanding about the nursing and care home setting, having grown up around them. I also worked part time as a care assistant (aide) from 1999-2004. In my youth I worked part time in the catering and housekeeping areas of nursing and care homes.

I have also worked and volunteered at two of Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang camps in both the US and Ireland. These camps are for children with life-threatening blood diseases and their families. Occasionally I assisted with meal planning/preparation for children with specialist therapeutic diets, for example seizures. 

I am committed to providing a high quality Dietetics service for the population here in Bermuda.

BSc (Hons) Dietetics

Registered Dietitian at Island Nutrition

Specialist areas - Gastrointestinal and digestive issues, Liver and Pancreatic disease, Oncology, Pre- and post-Surgical support, Colostomy and Ileostomy management, Nutrition support (including unintentional weight loss, wound healing and cancers), Adult food sensitivities, allergies and intolerance, General weight management, and Home visits (where appropriate). Interest in Sports Nutrition. Group education sessions

My dietetic studies and early career began in the United Kingdom, my home country. After graduating with a BSc in Dietetics from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2014, I worked the NHS, mainly in acute, or clinical community, settings. Early on this was mostly visiting elderly wards and inpatient settings for diabetes, respiratory conditions, or after hip replacements. My role developed to supporting tube feeding patients recovery back to full strength after surgery for cancers, liver transplants or other bowel surgeries. I helped run an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery program in Liverpool, aiming to reduce hospital stay after surgeries, and also visited patients at home when they were unable to make an appointment at the hospital clinic. 

It was an interesting start to my career, constantly changing and learning new skills but as well as new career prospects, I was also looking for a new way of life and so when the opportunity to jump ship to Bermuda came along nearly 6 years ago, it was too good to not try! 

Seeing patients on hospital wards vs in clinic in Bermuda could not be more different if it tried. Rather than see people intensely for a week or two before they’re discharged from the ward, here we really get to know our clients, and that in depth rapport helps us help you further. I have seen my clinical interests develop to areas that really help improve quality of life day to day (in bowel conditions - constipation, IBS, food intolerances, celiac disease, GERD), or make those hardest parts of illness and treatment seem more manageable, or help manage side effects (through chemo, radiation, surgeries, colostomy management, wound healing). I am passionate about helping you live your healthiest life as long as possible, so also strive to give the most up to date and practical advice relating to management of high cholesterol, glucose or blood pressure.

Outside of the office, I love to keep active and you may catch me on land or sea; diving, cycling, running, paddleboarding, sleeping, and obviously snacking! I was an active member of Bermuda Police Rugby for 5 years, captaining a year and arranging events and social activities throughout my time.

BSc (Hons) Dietetics

Registered Dietitian at Island Nutrition

Specialist areas - Renal/Kidney disease (including low clearance, CKD, ESRD, dialysis and transplants), Diabetes (Type I and II), Pre-diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases, Severe/Morbid Obesity (including bariatrics), Urology e.g. Kidney stones, Swallowing problems, Nutrition support (including unintentional weight loss, COPD, and renal), General weight management. Interest in Sports Nutrition. Group education sessions

I moved to Bermuda in December 2019 seeking sun and sea. A far stretch from what I have been used to in my home country, Ireland, and let me tell you Bermuda did not disappoint! The opportunity to focus on outpatient dietetics, gain new perspectives, and expand my skills, all on this picturesque island was something I could not pass up. I graduated from Coventry university, England in 2015 with a BSc honors in Dietetics. I then spent the beginning of my dietetic career working in Leeds, England, in one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, where I certainly learned a lot! I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council in both the UK and Bermuda.
Prior to moving to Bermuda, I worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and gained experience in providing a wide range of specialist diet advice. I supported a range of patients pre and post surgery including head and neck, upper gastrointestinal, pancreatic, urological and colorectal surgeries. I gained experience in weight management, morbid obesity (including post bariatric surgery), chronic kidney disease, home enteral (tube) feeding, nutrition support, diabetes (type 1 and 2). I have also worked with patients with complex respiratory conditions who required enteral feeding due to swallowing difficulties.
One of my most challenging, but enjoyable roles was working on oncology and surgical wards, which enabled me to follow patients through their cancer treatment pathway from chemotherapy to radiotherapy to surgery. My role was to optimise each patients nutritional intake by providing nutritional support, such as enteral (tube) feeding, oral nutritional supplements and tailored dietary advice.
In my current role here at Island Nutrition, I strive to empower people to be able to make sustainable and positive changes to their diet and lifestyle. For the past 5 years, I have been seeing clients for weight management including post bariatric surgery, chronic kidney disease (including dialysis), cardiovascular disease, pre-diabetes and Diabetes. I provide dietetic care for Bermuda Home Dialysis and the CORE program at the Bermuda Heart Foundation, so you may also see me there!
Otherwise, you may find me running on the railway trail with a red face (5 years and I am still yet to acclimatize) or playing touch rugby with the renegades.

After graduating as a mature student from Coventry University in 2011, I spent 10 years’ working in the UK’s National Health Service for Oxford University Foundation Trust. I have gained a wealth of dietetic knowledge and provided care in a wide range of health conditions. These range from general medicine, surgical care, gerontology, renal, gastroenterology, neuro-rehab, organ transplant and intestinal failure/rehabilitation patients.
For the last 2 years, I have been the sole dietitian on the British overseas island of Saint Helena serving a population of just over 4000 residents called ’Saints’.  On the island, I covered the 28 bed hospital, care homes, outpatient clinics, providing dietary advice to children and adults. I also delivered group sessions and ‘pop-up’ cafes across the island helping people living with chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic liver disease and type 2 diabetes. These events helped people understand their condition and what lifestyle changes can be made to help live a healthy life with their condition. Having worked on another overseas territory I understand some of the health challenges that are unique to island life and am looking forward to learning about the unique challenges that exist in Bermuda.
My passion for dietetics shines through and I thrive on helping make a difference to people’s lives by making dietary changes that fit your lifestyle, personal circumstances, and health conditions. As a dietitian I am very down to earth, I love developing, finding and using simple visual resources to support the information we discuss in clinic. You will frequently find me in the supermarkets looking at the back of food packets that clients have talked about during appointments, to support giving people individual advice.  
Back in the UK, I have an amazing, supportive family. I am the proud mother to 2 young ladies who are at the start of their careers teaching children and studying environmental biology at Nottingham University. While on Saint Helena I passed my PADI dive qualification and love to be in the water diving, snorkelling or swimming. My friends also know me for my love of baking - my signature cake is a very delicious lemon drizzle!

Rosanna Strickland

BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Dietetics 

Registered Dietitian at Island Nutrition

Specialist areas: Adult weight management, Cardiovascular diseases, Maternal health - TTC, pregnancy, Gestational diabetes, hyperemesis gravidarum (severe vomiting in pregnancy), post-partum, lactation, Gastrointestinal and digestive issues, Pre-diabetes, Texture modification e.g. learning disabilities, neurology, stroke rehab, Learning disabilities - undernutrition/tube feeds, Mental Health (including medication side effect management), Eating disorders, Neurology e.g. brain injuries, stroke, MND, Tube feeds, Home visits, Nursing and care homes and Geriatrics/Elderly care. Group education sessions

I graduated from Plymouth University, England with BSc Honours in Dietetics in 2020. Before moving to Bermuda, I was working in Brighton, England. I have existing registration with the Health Care Professions Council in both the UK and Bermuda. 

Whilst working at Brighton’s large teaching hospital, I gained experience in a number of specialist areas, and in both outpatients and inpatients. My caseload included specialisms such as alcoholic liver disease, Coeliac disease, diverticular disease, high cholesterol, IBS, infectious diseases, malnutrition, respiratory, surgical, trauma and orthopaedics.

I progressed to specialise in Stroke, where I worked as part of the multidisciplinary team on the Hyper-Acute Stroke Unit, supporting individuals with oral and enteral nutrition (tube feeds) post-stroke and throughout their rehabilitation. At this time, I was also worked with patients in gynaecology (oncology and post-surgical nutrition), eating disorders, and maternal health (hyperemesis gravidarum and gestational diabetes). 

My most recent role in the UK was supporting individuals in the community with long-term feeding tubes, such as learning disabilities, neuro injuries, traumatic injuries, stroke, and a variety of gastrointestinal conditions. I also supported individuals undergoing treatment for head and neck cancers. 

I strive to stay up to date with relevant research to ensure that my advice remains up-to-date and evidence based. I completed the Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Group (PENG) clinical update course (master’s level) in 2023, as well as completing British Dietetic Association (BDA) accredited courses in both Mental Health and Eating Disorders. 

I previously worked as a healthcare assistant in a specialist dementia care home. Working with residents who had complex and high-level needs highlighted the importance of good communication and how vital it is to not make assumptions about people or their capabilities. It also really affirmed my love of helping others and prompted me to pursue a career in healthcare. Dietetics was a combination of my love of helping people and my interest in nutrition, so seemed the perfect choice for me.

I particularly enjoy getting to know those I am working with; I believe that understanding the individual and what is important to them is a key component of creating a holistic and sustainable care plan. I believe that diversity should be celebrated and am passionate about equal access to healthcare. I will do whatever I can to adapt my practice to suit your individual needs (physical and psychological), to achieve this.

I love travel, the outdoors, and being by the sea, so upgrading from Brighton’s pebbled beaches to Bermuda’s pink sands was a no-brainer for me!
