My expertise lies in enhancing life through healthy diet and lifestyle choices. Following my own fertility struggles, I now specialise in nourishing and supporting life in it’s earliest stages from fertility and conception, through to pregnancy and breastfeeding.
I hold a Bachelor of Health Science Natural Medicine, an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy, a Diploma of Nutrition and a Diploma of Herbal Medicine and have worked as a Naturopath for over 15 years.
My love of writing lead me into writing for various major media publications, which lead to publication of my two books The Vitamins Guide and The Fertility Diet (Wilkinson Publishing Pty Ltd).
I am also an experienced speaker and presenter having presented on The Kerry Anne and David and Kim Morning Shows, run trainings and presentations for medical professionals, been a key note speaker at expo’s and conferences and now host the Conceive Baby Webinar Series and Conceive Baby Podcast.
I’m passionate about life! My aim is always to live life to it’s full potential. For me, this means having a healthy vehicle to carry me through. I’m amazed at how most of us treat our cars better than we do our bodies. We get them serviced, we keep them well fuelled and oiled, yet in reality, if it breaks down we can trade it in for a new one! Our body is the most important and only vehicle we will ever have, yet in most cases we rarely service it, we pump in poor quality fuel yet still expect it to fire on all cylinders. I love helping people gain a better understanding and perspective about their health and their body.
My passion for life also extends to the creating of life. Helping couples, who may be struggling with infertility, conceive and carry healthy babies. I’m passionate about educating couples about the importance of preconception health, not only on your ability to conceive, but on the long term health outcomes of the child. We can spend day’s, week’s even month’s painting and decorating the babies nursery ready for the new arrival but the most important ‘nursery’ your baby will ever have, is the one inside you. Nourishing your baby doesn’t just begin when it’s born or even when it’s conceived. I love the saying ‘when you were just a twinkle in your Father’s eye’, because that’s when you really start nourishing your future child. That’s when you are already nourishing the precious DNA that will create the healthy egg and sperm that will potentially become your future child. Research now shows that the nourishment you provide during the precious preconception period, can have a greater impact on the long term health of the child, than genetics. The nourishing and the nurturing starts now.
I love travelling, hiking, exploring, spending time with my family and just being out in nature. My favourite pastime at the moment is to combine all these things on ‘exploring walks’ where we can spend hours walking through nature just seeing what we discover along the way. I love seeing the world through my children’s eyes. The wonder, the intrigue and the pure joy in the simplest things.
How I Can Help Other Members
As career women, starting a family can be pushed back to allow our careers time to flourish. Unfortunately biology has not evolved with this new way of life. The reality is, that age has a significant impact on our ability to conceive. And age is one thing we cannot change. Fortunately there are a multitude of other factors affecting our fertility, that we do have the power to change. I can help members optimise their health and fertility at any age.
Why I Became a HerBusiness Member
I have been flying solo in my business for 5 years now. It wasn’t until about 2 years ago that I discovered the networking and community opportunities available. Since then I have explored many options, both good and not so good, but overall enjoyed the feeling of being a part of a bigger community. Having followed Suzi’s email for many years and trusted her sound information and advice I finally took the plunge and joined HerBusiness. Since completing the Content Sells Course and attending the Round Table, I know now that I’ve found my tribe. Everyone I have met has been so welcoming and generous in their support that I have been inspired to become a Master Mind Member too!
