Her Story
I'm a mum of three and a wife to one. And ever since I can remember I have loved nutrition and the power it holds to change a life. I love to help busy working women from around Australia (and abroad) achieve their best health through the use of simple yet life changing tools. I received my bachelor in Nutritional Medicine in 2009 and have been working with people ever since. Despite loving people and sharing the message of good health I discovered that I actually really enjoy the business development side of things especially marketing and brand management. (I'm also a huge fan of public speaking). I decided to make this interest official last year by finishing my Grad Dip in Marketing (and hope to one day finish my Masters). In my 'spare time' I manage a health food store and am also their marketing manager. (I'm still juggling the balance of building a business and working part time). I have also been able to combine my love of nutrition, my heart for people and my savvy business sense and put them all to good use at Exousia Inc. This Brisbane based non-profit works tirelessly to alleviate poverty in Myanmar by empowering rural communities and emerging health care workers to take a more active role in their health and education. My role in this organisation, as Director of Health Projects, is to lead small teams of Nutritionists and like-minded professionals into Myanmar to teach foundational nutrition, first aid and sanitation. This exciting volunteer role helps Exousia take essential tools and information to those desperate to be equipped to make good choices for themselves and their families. I know it sounds like I've got my hands in a few cookie jars, and you're probably right. Which is why self-care and easy health hacks are so important to me. I hope you will join me in the journey of doing life in a way that nourishes our bodies, our minds and our souls.
Her Wisdom

When I began my business over ten years ago I did almost everything alone. Facebook was still in it's infancy and many business groups were male dominant and a little intimidating for a young mum starting out. I felt that everyone in business knew what they were doing... except me.

So,  now I really value the connection that I have with like minded people. They help build me up and I help them too.  

So, don't wait. Find your tribe or even tribes and connect in. Give of yourself and you'll find it's the most valuable thing you can do.

To be truthful I\'ve always believed that I was meant to make a difference. However I didn\'t believe I was capable. I was afraid of failure and of success.

Then I realized... it wasn\'t about me. It was really about those I was there to help.

This is quite empowering because it takes the focus off myself and puts it on those that I can help. 

My biggest challenge now is finding the balance between serving others in my business, our nfp and at home, and taking care of myself. It's a balancing act.

  1. The people who have gone before you have so much wisdom to share. Get around those who are happy to share it with you.
  2. Fight for excellence in your industry. There\'s big perceptions out there that nutrition and holistic well-being is a substandard form of healthcare. It\'s not true, don\'t believe it for a second.
  3. Don\'t give up. It takes longer than you think but the victories, although sometimes small, are worth it.
