- I was born and raised in the UK. But I’m OK now.
- My dad had Asperger’s and my mother was an East German escapee. Mine was a difficult upbringing, but easier than theirs.
- I delight in British humour and sophistication of the intellect, but relish Australia’s sunshine, big windows, and relaxed honesty.
- I have a manic research head. Something you need to know? A truth you need distilled from a mass of complex, contradictory information? I’m your girl. Let me at it.
- I’m a bit obsessed with objectivity as a thing. I love it. It feels wise.
- My mother was always very sick, and crippled by multiple autoimmune illnesses by the time she turned 50. This backdrop has served as a battery pack for my life – I have been determined to live the exact opposite experience. Vitality is my number one value.
- Cheerful composure is my second. Usually this is true for me. Sometimes it’s aspirational.
- Barring accidents, misadventure or quirky genes, I believe that chronic unwellness is mostly preventable/resolvable when we really put our minds to it. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
- I’m acrobatic and playful. I love yoga, dance, and the kinds of (fully grown adult) friends who I can play with like I play with my dog.
- My dog is the sweetest, nicest being I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. I love her.
- I have a double degree in psychology and management, certifications in executive coaching, psychometrics, hypnotherapy, HeartMath, language teaching and yoga teaching, and a decades-long amassment of study materials on nutritional science.
- I like growing things and designing natural, biophilic environments for humans and other animals. I almost became a biologist, a vet, a photographer, or a graphic artist.
- When I coach people on personal or work issues I am almost entirely solution-focused. Don’t come to me if you just want your forehead stroked. Be prepared – we’re going to fix the problem.
