I'm an author, editor and educator. I am passionate about women's health and issues pertaining to women. I have worked with girls in schools, local women, families and women across the world.
I'm a single Mum with 5 kids and I have stage 4 ovarian cancer with the BRCA 1 gene mutation.
People ask me how I do it; how I stay so positive. I smile a lot. I laugh. I sing. I am fuelled by my desire to impact people in a positive way; my family, my friends, the community at large. It's about outlook, it's about tools, it's about resilience.
I love helping people with what I have learned in the hope that it may also help them. I have been blessed with many wise teachers in my time and also through life's tapestry of experience. I have a lot of powerful knowledge that I know transforms lives. I want to share it.
