Owner & Naturopath
HELLO, NICE TO MEET YOU!
A little about me…
I discovered an interest for Natural Health during my teenage years, seeing the amazing changes in my brother when he was treated by a Naturopath for glandular fever during his final year of high school.
Skip through about a decade and I found myself studying Exercise Science, realising there was so much more to health. It is not merely a fit looking body, but it is also your mindset, lifestyle, social networks and what you put into your body that creates a healthy person.
I truly discoverd my passion for helping people and sharing my health knowledge once I began studying Bachelor Health Science (Naturopathy) from 2006-2009.
I was blessed to spend time working with world famous women’s health expert Ruth Trickey whilst I studied in Melbourne. It was here that my interest and experience began with helping women with their hormonal health. The changes I saw whilst working in that clinic were nothing short of incredible. Herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle changes really can help change people’s lives for the better!
In my clinic in Currumbin Waters QLD, I have succesfully helped women (and their partners) prepare for conception, encourage, educate and empower them for beautiful natural births, as well as ease them into parenthood. I am a huge believer in working with your own body and trusting your instincts. Many of the modern health and parenting books out there teach the opposite. I have had 2 awesome pregnancies (morning sickness included) as well as 2 natural births. My kids are 6 and 3 years old. I have access to and can help you access the awesome health practitioners who assisted me with my pregnancies and birth. Ask me here.
I myself have had adrenal fatigue (especially during those early parenting days), weight gain and thyroid issues in the past, as well as food intolerances and suffered for many years with insulin resistance & high cortisol levels (stress!).
Since I have experienced all of these health issues myself, I have consistently kept up to date with research and Natural treatment options available, so I feel well equipped to help you if you’re in a similar health stage. I am happy to say I have more 10/10 energy days each week than not. In fact, I am constantly complimented on the amount of energy I have. Maybe it’s time I shared some of my extra energy tips with you! Make a booking here.
I love encouraging people to eat more healthy food, crowding out the ‘bad stuff’ to support their gut health, immune system and discover how fun and delicious eating wholefoods is. If you eat it, the kids will eat it too!
I work with a functional pathology lab to test & discover which organs and hormones need assistance, then utilise herbal medicine and nutritional supplements to assist your body to returning a more balanced state.
