I love my work, I truly do. Even on the toughest of days, I look forward to getting into the office and seeing my patients. So for me to sit and really think about why I feel that way, it was well, nice.

To some extent I have always been wired this way and I thank my beautiful Nanna, who sadly passed away just weeks ago at the ripe ol' age of 93, for this.
As a child I remember Nanna and I picking plants to feed to my teddy bears as medicine.
As a child,
I remember heading to the chemist with Nanna, not to collect her medication, but to collect her vitamins and herbs.
As a child I remember Nanna reading to me, not children’s books, but passages from the nutrient bible.

Later in life, as a teenager, I remember my weight spiraling out of control and then fluctuating relentlessly.
As a teenager I remember feeling tired and moody, all of the time.
And as a young adult I remember wanting to do something about it. I remember wanting to find the answers and when I found my answers, I wanted to help others find theirs.

So I studied Naturopathy.

 
I genuinely wanted to help people first and foremost.
I wanted to help people wade through some of the health confusion and I wanted to give them a personalised and simplified treatment approach.

Now, more than ever, I want to help women in particular look after themselves, because as women, we tend to take care of everyone else before we take care of ourselves.

I love connecting people with their body, tuning them into the signs that something is not as it should be.
I want to encourage an awareness of the symptoms that are very common, but are not ‘normal’ and show people how to support their body back to a place of balance.

 
I want to extend the clinic beyond Naturopathy because while I love using herbs and nutrition, I feel there is a lot more to health and wellness.
I want to build a truly helpful health and wellness team.
 
A team filled with the most amazing practitioners, with a no BS approach to wellness. A team of practitioners, qualified in a range of modalities, that I know through personal experience, contribute to exceptional wellness.
 
And that is WHY I get out of bed every day, excited for what's ahead.
