“I am a simple soul, with a love of adventures who always likes to see the opportunities and situations around us as invitations to go deeper, and live the life that we were always mean to live. In my day to day life I am a Nutritional Psychology Coach certified with The Institute for the Psychology of Eating in Boulder, Colorado and author of ‘The Girl in the Patchwork Dress’  – a story about my life growing up in a big family and a small farming community in Zimbabwe.   Each forest walk, each horse I rode and each waterfall I sat beneath speaks to me of our ability as humans to receive the absolute wonder of life in a gracious and accepting way.  How I have appreciated my childhood as I have ‘grown up’, and I use the qualities found then in daily pursuit of  my real passion – a life less ordinary.

I am no stranger to radio talk shows, being interviewed by conscious groups, workshop speaking, community development, wild harvesting botanicals and bringing people together, as well as my favorite – just being.   I rarely have too many expectations and love to use the excuse of holding space for what is meant to be – to get me out of chaotic situations!”

Q&A

1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?

“Although it petrified me at the time, and I felt very vulnerable and ‘on show’  the achievement of Amazon Best Seller status for my book was certainly a milestone in my existence that I can’t overlook.  At the same time I hold dear the many, many times I have had to show strength and courage to overcome so many of the obstacles that life and death has in store for us during our earthly lives, and I rely greatly on the power of connection and community and deeply felt relationships to bolster me through these moments.  Shout out at this point to my absolute beloved soul family.

2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?

“I have always feared ‘Eternity’  As a child I would lie in my bed at night looking at the stars from my pillow and wonder where my reality ended.  The enormity of Infinity was enough to make me suffer copious anxiety attacks !  But eventually, during my life I have realized that eternity is and can only be LOVE.  And love is the basis of our existence.  I feel like my piece of the puzzle, my soul, my strength and my value lies in my ability to stand back and see perspective in every situation, therefore allowing that love (that was always so scary to me) to remain the mainstay of my relationships with self, others and situations. Sounds too good to be true, and it usually is.  But it’s okay I can still poke fun at myself too.”

3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?

“I have a strong sense of duty and responsibility to understand and co-create with Mother Earth.  I will always reframe every situation to reflect that relationship, look for ways to harness natural resources – and encourage others to do the same.  We are enormously powerful when we work together, in community and within the cycles of life on our precious planet.  We just have to listen and fit seamlessly into the network when the time arrives.”

Thank you for being you!
