My background includes a successful career as manager of the acclaimed Queenstown Winter Festival and this position offered me a particular understanding of how stress plays a major role in our health. After finishing the Winter Festival in 2009 I decided that I wanted to not only reduce stress in my life but assist others to do the same in their life too.
You might be surprised to learn that it is my own health struggles that has lead me to where I am today – In 2011 I never expected that I would be struck down with a heart condition that required me to have a pacemaker fitted.
It would have been easy to let this setback slow me down, instead, I turned this challenge into motivation to live life to the full, and encourage others to do the same. I have run 4 marathons since getting my pacemaker and haven’t looked back.
In 2017 I was diagnosed with SIBO (Small intestinal bowel overgrowth). This lead me to complete a Gut Health Course at the Institute of Integrated Nutrition which has given me expertise in the understanding of the fundamentals of digestive and gut health, the factors that can influence conditions of gut imbalance, and the dietary and lifestyle choices that may promote optimal health.
