As a life/personal development/wellness coach, personal trainer, ex nurse, company director and a mother,
grandmother, partner, I strive to practice what I coach by incorporating my passions into my life.
What are my passions? - People, family, well-being, fitness and health, small business, and working with
individuals and corporates assisting them achieve results. My goal is to help people from all backgrounds
and cultures, from teenagers to adults, to achieve their life's purpose.
Although I loved nursing and the people contact, I became frustrated with seeing the same patients coming
in getting "fixed" and not heeding advice and returning soon after with the same conditions or worse.
I decided I wanted to be the ambulance at the top of the cliff and not at the bottom.
Preventative is the solution
I love walking the talk and exercise - walks in the bush with Harry my Border Collie, tennis, golf, paddle
boarding the waves, and skiing. I work on my emotions and soul, practicing Energy Medicine, Chi gong,
meditation, breathing techniques and I'm open to learning other healthy modalities. I eat clean food and
as much as possible grow my own vegetables and eat as many vegetables as I can with minimal meat. I
still enjoy fish, chicken and lamb.
Holistic - Emphasising the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts, looking at the
body, mind and soul for wellness.
