My Journey

My healing journey has led me to adopt and embrace a vibrant lifestyle in all its facets; and to help others achieve the same.


In 2016 I felt like I was frantically treading water in the deep end after the arrival of my colicky second child. I was unwell five times in the first 5 months of my baby’s life with what I thought was “gastro”, which turned out to be E.Coli contamination in our rural water supply. A filter fixed the water and the “gastro” ceased, however my gut health was ruined leaving me with intestinal permeability – AKA “Leaky Gut”, and dysbiosis. I was also plagued with other ailments that conventional medicine could not help me with (I had normal bloods & physical examination, but was a shell of a human!) – adrenal fatigue and postnatal depletion, all of which severely affected my quality of life, and my family’s lives too.

I was unable to tolerate many foods and my health continued to deteriorate. I was sleep deprived (yet WIRED at night), lethargic, brain foggy, irritable/rage-y, had severe eczema, joint aches, digestive issues (gas/bloating), liver discomfort, menstrual concerns, poor immune function, and battled with frequent yeast infections.

Eliminating the foods I was sensitive to eased some of my symptoms. I was forced to become passionate for cooking whole foods (I was previously uninterested in cooking!). I committed a great amount of my time to the kitchen trying to heal myself with nutrition. I tried Paleo and Western Price styles of eating, but these animal-food-heavy, unprocessed diets weren’t enough to give me the healing I was so desperate for. By late 2017 I had stopped eating sugar, dairy, eggs, soy and wheat, and I was following a super-clean Paleo style diet with a lot of home grown meat…yet my symptoms persisted.

After 2+ years of trial and error with nutrition and supplements, and with encouragement from friends who were healing from cancer and autoimmune disease, I decided to quit meat and trial a whole food plant based diet. Not just WFPB, but a detoxifying, high fruit (juices + smoothies galore!), low fat, low protein Medical Medium style of eating. DEEP END STUFF! I had nothing to lose and was willing to try anything once – after all, I could always go back to meat if it didn’t work out!

Eating this way meant that my body was absolutely flooded with anti-inflammatory nutrients and fibre, allowing for detoxification and healing to take place. Most of my ailments started disappearing within the first 3 months. It was astounding how quickly my health turned around. The best parts were having consistent energy and no more brain fog. Oh and being free from eczema!

These days my eating style consists of: lots of fruit; vegetables – especially leafy greens; nuts & seeds; gluten-free wholegrains; legumes & beans; and herbs & spices.

One thing to remember is we humans are very adaptable, resilient, and can do anything we set our minds to. I had once said I could never be a “vegan” (P.S. I do not identify as vegan!), yet here I am no longer consuming animal foods, and enjoying the abundance of plant foods that nature provides. Oh, and I am absolutely THRIVING for it.

When working as a nurse, I saw many people living with diseases of the modern-day lifestyle; and on a multitude of daily medications. Illnesses such as type two diabetes, cancer, heart disease, PCOS, endometriosis, arthritis, autoimmune disease, and MORE; are significantly influenced by what we choose to ingest. AND lead to poor quality of life!

Between my health crisis above; losing my mother to breast cancer; leaving my dysfunctional marriage; overcoming my anxious attachment style in relationships; finding my dream man; discovering my self worth; establishing personal boundaries; releasing my people pleasing tendencies and learning how to run a business – trust me when I say, I have had more than enough life experience to help you through what you’re going through, or struggling with.

I wish to empower & inspire you to lead your most free, joyous and vibrant life, with a focus on…

Nutrition; plant medicine; detoxification; physical activity; sleep; emotional/psychological healing; spirituality; sexuality; longevity; breaking free from anything that is holding you back; learning to love who you are, and what you look like + MORE!
