I owned and cooked in my Internationally acclaimed restaurant in Launceston, Tasmania, for 20 years from 1989-2009. I learnt a tonne of info about cooking during that time! I was Branch Manager for Thermomix in Australia in Tasmania from 2007 –2016 working with up to 147 amazing people at the height of the branch's success. I still think Thermomix is hands-down the best kitchen/cooking appliance I’ve ever come across and I cook with it every day as it helps me create nutrient-dense food while saving me buckets of time. I co-wrote ‘A Devil of a Cookbook’ with Thermomix in Australia - the book raised $260,000.00 to help save the Tasmanian Devils in their hour of need. I work part-time with an Internationally successful motivational speaker, Robin Banks, and I practice his teachings on how we can use our mind to create the life we want and deserve – on a daily basis. I am an adventurer and an enjoyer-of-life. I housesit, reflect, study, listen, exercise, have fun, enjoy life, oh, and I’m still cooking great food! I love to research and ask questions and understand WHY things are as they are – get to the cause of the problem and fix that rather than band-aid things. I am a self-confessed personal-growth junkie! But … my biggest passion is health. Taking care of myself. Leading a happy, healthy balanced lifestyle. My mission in life is to inspire and lead others to do the same for THEIR wonderful, exciting, sometimes challenging, but always awesomely miraculous life!
