At just 19 I opened my own beauty therapy business. You see … way back in 1983 I became a skin and beauty therapist. Eventually owning three beauty businesses which gave me access to insider information … but I didn’t like what I saw.
I started to question the manufacturers about the ingredients in the products I was recommending and selling. In the late eighties I discovered aromatherapy (when people didn’t even know what the word meant!). While studying to become a clinical aromatherapist in London I began to see how natural ingredients were more effective AND less damaging to the skin. Using my skin as a laboratory I investigated how nutrition and natural therapies can make a positive difference to the health of your skin. As a result I became VERY disillusioned with the beauty industry. I could not live a lie any longer and in 1997 we sold-up and left the beauty industry behind. In 2001 I started a marketing company called Great Look Email Marketing and also began sharing my ‘skin secrets’ with my friends who wanted their skin to look like mine. So a book was written about what I had learned about the beauty industry rip-offs. My book “If You Want Great Skin, Throw Away Your Cosmetics” was published in 2004 but seems people were not yet ready to hear this information. They just loved their fancy jars of stuff too much – seriously. So I went on with life…
My husband (and childhood sweetheart) ‘thought’ we could not have children but at the age of 40 I gave birth to a beautiful boy. Being a parent has you see how trivial some things are, things that we ‘thought’ were important really aren’t at all. Being ‘older’ parents we thought we’d do some travelling while still young which had us travelleing for two and half years around Australia. Want to get closer to your family?

You know those moments in time that change your life? We had a MAJOR one in November 2010 when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. Luckily I was extremely healthy BEFORE I began the chemotherapy which made it easier for me to heal, possibly the reason I survived – I only had a 10% chance! (I’ll write a book about ‘that’ journey one day.)
In the meantime … here I am, living in georgeous Cairns Australia, writing books about how to look after yourself naturally. It’s my way of giving back.
