Edel has a B.Sc. (Hons), M.Applied Science (Food Science), Cert Training & Continuing Education, is a Fellow of the Institute of Food Science & Technology (Ireland) and holds auditor qualifications from IRCA (International Register of Certified Auditors). She is an experienced Food Safety Professional with extensive knowledge and experience within various sectors of the food industry and has held significant positions in organisations such as the Institute of Food Science and Technology of Ireland where Edel is a fellow and past president. She is also a Licensed trainer with C.I.E.H (UK) and with the Environmental Health Officers Association of Ireland.
Edel has a passion for training and enjoys the interaction with her learners over the duration of the training course. Many of her learners often put the ‘Skill of the trainer’ as the highlight of the course on their evaluation form which is testament to Edel’s natural training style. She often surprises her delegates when she asks as an ice breaker, for an interesting fact about themselves and she tells them she met a canonised saint (No, she is not ancient), she had a private audience with Pope John Paul Second, now Saint John Paul!!.
A quote I have put great value in as I go through life is from the Greek Philosopher Plato: ‘A good decision is based on knowledge not on numbers’. So often we have to stand out from the crowd when we know what is right and this is a value I hope to instill into my two sons.
