I've always been fascinated by the potential of the human being, the magnitude of scope, to the capacity of hope.
How fast we can run, to how much we can endure. At school, I wanted to be the fastest, the brightest. I wanted to be good at everything.
Without conjecture, I was driven to do, be, achieve.
With a background in exercise physiology, I became a teacher, a writer, a speaker, and founder of FROM.
I established a network of corporate fitness classes, launched a private member's holistic health club, and co-founded one of the UK’s first pilates studios. I’ve written, taught and examined in sports science and health-related education programmes.
And madly enough, I have also been the co-owner of a soft fruit farm and spent two years converting it from conventional to organic farming practices.
Understanding the environmental impact of industrial agriculture, I set up FROM Clothing to pioneer positive change in sustainable activewear and yoga apparel, providing an alternative to mainstream manufacturing with minimal environmental impact.
As a serial entrepreneur, I’ve been in the business of wellness all my life, conscious-driven work that contributes to the well being of people and planet.
FROM has since evolved into a CONSCIOUS RAISING PLATFORM, sharing stories, inspiring people, and businesses, to take action on things they care about. Empowering them to believe, however small, their mindful choices matter, are significant, and DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Now, a few decades on, I realise it wasn't about winning the race or getting top marks in class, it was much simpler than that.
'It was about belonging, being valued and feeling worthy...'
It was about having a sense of self regardless of external appraisal, from an innate desire for my life to have meaning and purpose. Something I think we can all resonate with and look to seek.
So, on a personal exploration, I want to understand how we can live a more authentic life, free of self-judgement and limiting beliefs, compassionate to ourselves and others, savouring moments, cultivating what matters to us most.
'My focus is simple, to expand whats possible, to inspire you to do positive, good things, that in turn inspires others to do positive, good things. To better ourselves, others and to live life from the fullness of the experience and the now moment.'
I love sharing stories, so if you are looking for a speaker, or want to run a workshop or event, and think we maybe a good fit, lets chat. Please get in touch with me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
