Its January 2019 and I'm living my dream. My beautiful new yoga studio on the North Shore of Maui had been open 6 months, and I'd just signed the lease on the space next door to build out a wellness center.
I was busy - maybe a bit too busy - but loving life. Opportunities abounded and I was so excited for what life was bringing.
And then one sunny Friday afternoon, I exited a blind corner and found a large school bus barreling headlong into my lane. In a split second, my life changed and my dream turned into, what felt like for many years, a nightmare.

FROM LEMONS TO LEMONADE - How the worst 3 years of my life set the stage for the best to follow....
I made the heart breaking decision to close my businesses and focus on my health.
I chose to "lose" one battle in order to win the "war". I turned to my yoga practice, to Ayurvedic Principles and Practices, to deep rest, to self care.
I spent a year getting as strong and healthy as possible and used the time to go back to school to study nutrition and health coaching.
In the end I still had to have the (life saving) surgery but I'd set myself up for a successful procedure and recovery. Having a great foundation of health prior to my accident and all my health and wellness training meant within 1 year post surgery I was back to teaching and expanding my wellness business with a clear vision of how I wanted to show up and better serve my students and clients.

I've been a passionate entrepeneur since my early 20’s. In my LBY (Life-Before-Yoga) I graduated with a degree in Marketing and Sales Management, running my own Events Management company before eventually finding my way to my yoga mat in 2001.
In 2004 I graduated with my first 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, opened my first studio and over the next 20 years continued my studies in yoga, personal training, corrective exercise, nutrition and health coaching.
But before arriving in the "Rainbow State" (Hawaii) I called the "Rainbow Nation" (South Africa) home.
Living on the magical island of Maui I get to live my dream life running my small but purpose driven business......
