My passion is to help busy women redesign their lives and become the best version of themselves.
My journey to vibrant health has been a long and challenging path.
At the age of 16, I had a terrifying accident. I was swimming and diving in the pool with friends. One dive resulted in me bursting a vein in my brain. This became life threatening, as with the burst came a massive bleed on the brain and my fight for my life started.
Not only was there a lot of pain each day but it also meant I had to start all over again and relearn the most basic things in life such as speaking, seeing, moving, reading, writing and playing. This was not easy; however, it made me realise how unimportant THINGS really were and it fuelled my determination to get back to full HEALTH and living life to the fullest.
Not many believed I would, but against all the odds I made a full recovery.
What I’ve learnt
With restored health, a new appreciation of life and a different insight into the body and how it can heal itself, I was on a mission to share this knowledge to others. My passion to motivate, encourage and guide people to the best most vibrant versions of themselves was born.
Moving, nurturing and filling your body with beautiful nourishing foods is what I live by now and have ever since.
I have also learnt that my journey towards vibrant health is ongoing, with new and constant challenges arising. When life makes me re-define myself, I dig deep and utilise the skills I have learnt through very trying times to come out the other end; yes sometimes maybe a little bruised- but definitely stronger.
Being physically active and nourishing my body with the right foods helps me tackle life challenges and makes me a stronger, happier and better person. I have never felt better, and it is now my purpose to empower, inspire and motivate you to be the best version of yourself; guiding you to nurture your precious body with delicious, healthy foods and keep your body strong and energised, moving it in the way it is supposed to.
As a model.
As part of my life’s ride I fell into the modelling scene, which was a very unhealthy environment. The arrogance, the competition, and unhealthy eating behaviours were a real eye opener for me. The glamorous lifestyle is actually driven by numbers; a meat-market that strips your soul. This is a world that could not be further away from what I believed in and was passionate about. Nonetheless, I felt myself sucked into the vicious cycle of unhealthy thoughts followed by eating less and training more excessively. Unhappy, weak and anxious, I knew I was betraying my true natural self and my second chance I had been given for this life. So I stopped modelling, counting calories and overtraining and instead started listening to my body and soon regained my old spark.
As a mother away from home and business owner.
Becoming a mum in a new country, trying to settle into a completely new community, I was so busy making a home, running a business and prioritizing everyone else’s needs, I ignored my own wellbeing and health, which put a lot of pressure on my marriage and almost ended in divorce. With more lessons learnt, I realized how important self-care and nurturing my soul is for me to be able to be the best and most radiant version of myself. I believe this is something very powerful and precious I can now pass on to my children.
As a personal trainer and nutrition & health coach.
As a personal trainer, my health soared and so has the health of my clients. My approach to personal training has from the very beginning been a very holistic one and while I have always loved supporting my client’s changes and growth through exercise, I felt there was more I could do to empower them on their journey of transformation and better health. This is when I decided to go back to school and study nutrition.
Combining personal training with nutrition is a perfect combination for me: it gives me the opportunity to not only make my clients stronger, happier and more confident people by helping them to accomplish their goals on a physical level or change their bodies on the outside. It now allows me to help my clients make changes from the inside too: with the use of beautiful fresh wholefoods to support their weight loss, boost their energy levels, rejuvenate them or simply support them to look and feel the best versions of themselves. I believe that everyone is different and that it takes a lot of persistence and perseverance to find the winning combination that’s right for you.
Being physically active and nourishing my body with the right foods helps me tackle life challenges and makes me stronger, happier and a better person. I have never felt better, and it is now my purpose to empower, inspire and motivate you to be the best version of yourself; guiding you to nurture your precious body with delicious, healthy foods and keep your body strong and energised, moving it the way it is supposed to.
