Tell us a bit about you and your journey…

I started in the fitness industry at the young age of 16 and spent 12 years in personal training, teaching aerobics and competing in both sport aerobics and fitness model comps. I have practiced and taught all the traditional fitness industry diet and training methods for most of my young life. All of this left me with some eating disorders, a negative mind-set and depression in my 20s. And, sadly, all these teachings still go on today, some 25 years later!

Now, at 45 years of age and since re-educating myself in my mid to late 30s, in plant based nutrition, nutritional medicine and fitness again, I decided to get back into the fitness industry, as I wanted to educate people about the benefits of plant-based nutrition. This change in my own lifestyle, lead to my passion in helping others now change their health and wellness, all whilst making the world a more compassionate one.

My thriving ethical lifestyle has led to my success as an international bikini champion and helped in my online coaching programs in which I only write Vegan Meal Plans. I have had the honour of helping transform thousands of people’s lives to a healthy plant-based vegan lifestyle across the globe for the past 5 years. I believe, ‘we cannot force change, but we can inspire change’.
