I offer you guidance and inspiration to help shift your behaviors to healthy habits that are sustainable to you and the planet.
I also teach about healthy nutrition, especially about Fermentation and food preservation. How to eat healthy for you and the planet is an important element to me as it can make or break you and the planet!
People work with me to develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for them as a unique individual.
I have studied a variety of dietary theories, personal development techniques and specific coaching methodologies from various schools.
But believe it or not my training started as a waitress in our family restaurant(s) where I learnt about good food and drink, recipe development, catering services and the love for nourishment through food & community.
This gave me an ever-curious mind about food and deliciousness (the healthy side of that came later).
Moving on to be a nomad, traveling and working as a Sailor and Kite-surf instructor I learnt about different cultures and foods, became very good at organizing logistics, especially provisioning for long trips, and even did a short stint as a personal chef on yachts.
Looking for a career change I trained with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a Health Coach.
This was the beginning of my journey to Wellness (personal & professional).
Through this training I discovered TRE by David Bercelli, which fascinated me so much that I signed up for the training in Bali and Thailand with Maria Alfaro and Joan Macdonald as my trainers. The results where mind blowing.
Later I became a Laughter Yoga Leader & Yoga Teacher, which I find, goes hand in hand with TRE and stress reduction.
In the meantime I became Operations & Program Manager at Santosa Detox&Wellness Center in Phuket where I split my time between running the center and taking care of the detox guests.
After all that, plus a few years, I decided it was time to follow my vision of living on a sailing boat and travelling the globe. Yet I still wanted to have an impact in the world.
Personally before I got on my path to wellness I was living my dream of being a sailor, a nomad and watersports junkie. After a debilitating injury to my spine and a few chronic conditions I had shrugged off for many years, I was forced to take some downtime to recover and realized I wasn’t as healthy as I had believed to be.
I suffered from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, depressive phases & anxiety, body image issues & negative mind set, severe digestive issues, chronic muscle&joint pains, fatigue and on top of that various infections bugged me regularly.
But I just pushed on through ignoring the alarm bells going off in my body for a long time.
The mission of self healing began not just with nurturing myself through food but also nurturing myself through better relationships with myself and others, different physical activity, a deeper connection to my spirituality, and a new career.
I realized that even when you are living your dream life, balance is key otherwise it is not sustainable. I have had many teachers along the way who taught me and I am continuously learning about my self, my environment and how to do things better.
Now I can go back to my dream of living on a boat without the fear of ill health stopping me.
That is empowering.
Having the tools to deal with anything.
Let me pass on some of my knowledge so you can achieve your visions too.
