I founded The Healthy Hormone Naturopath after a number of years in the Natural Medicine industry helped me realise that treating woman and their hormonal concerns is my absolute passion.
It just seemed to me that outside of Natural Medicine there seemed to be limited options available for women who were suffering because of hormonal imbalances.
And look, I’m happy to admit that I am a bit of a “I am Woman Hear Me Roar” kinda gal too.
I love the opportunity to educate and empower women about their health and specifically their hormonal health. Our hormones are such a big part of who we are!
Fortunately, I have a family that supports me in my passion and although my two boys (three if you count my hubby) keep me on my toes and sometimes it can be tricky juggling everything, they are the light of my life.
I came to the Natural Medicine industry quite late in life. Previously in corporate, my decision to change careers was prompted by my own health journey. Once a quite unhealthy person (I smoked, drank and ate pretty poor-quality food), I was prompted to change my lifestyle when I had post-natal depression after my oldest child. I started exercising and eating nutritious foods and over time this resulted in a markedly changed outlook on life and being 40kg lighter.
The change for me mentally and physically was so profound that I felt compelled to go and study Nutrition. I met some amazing Naturopaths at College so I also studied Naturopathy. Along the way my love of exercise resulted in me getting my Personal Trainer qualifications too.
I have presented in both my corporate career and my Natural Health career to a variety of people – I love the chance to pursue my passion!
If I’m not researching, consulting or hanging out with family and friends, you will find me in the gym. I have a love of brightly coloured tights and probably have more than I really need!
My favourite things to help with are all things women and hormonal;
Preconception & pregnancy
Support for IVF
Menopause & Peri-menopause
Nutrition for optimal hormone health
Finding the right diet and lifestyle for individual genetics
Speaking and educating about all of the above
