Let’s start with my professional background, which has developed through a somewhat varied career path.
I started out in healthcare, co-owning and working in a large chiropractic and multi-disciplinary healthcare centre in the heart of Sydney. Our clientele were largely lawyers, accountants, politicians and high fliers in the banking sector. I saw clients repeatedly with recurrent headaches, neck and shoulder tension and all the signs of being incredibly stressed. They all worked incredibly hard and long hours, had recurrent physical health issues, were stressed and longed for peace. After six years in this position, I started to feel like a band-aid, like I wasn’t able to offer a permanent lifestyle solution for them.
After taking time out to raise a family, I decided to completely change career paths and co-founded a large Occupational Health and Safety company with clients throughout Australia and the world.
But again, after nine years in the corporate sector, I felt I had contributed all I could to help businesses make their workplaces safer, and realised my calling was in health and wellbeing.
I have a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Physiology, a Master’s Degree in Chiropractic, and I am a qualified EMMETT Practitioner, yoga and meditation teacher, Reiki Master and Healer. Plus, for a twist from my previous career in the corporate world, I hold an Advanced Diploma in OHS and am a qualified Lead OHS Auditor.
On a personal note my family are very important to me, and I absolutely revel in being outdoors with my daughters – we love swimming in waterfalls, walking in the bush, camping, and enjoying the amazing environment here where we live in tropical North Queensland, Australia.
And of course I love yoga and meditation, which form an integral part of my work and my own sense of peace and balance.
Yoga Tools for Schools Inc. is a program originating in Townsville I am passionate about. It gives children and their educators yoga tools to enhance their self awareness, self esteem and self management.
