What did you do before your role at Noosa Confidential?
Having started my working life as a music teacher I opted for a change of direction and began cooking, initially in restaurants in Australia and London, moving on to many years spent chefing in the yachting industry in Europe & the Caribbean. This eventually led to the question “what would I like to do once it’s time to settle somewhere more permanent than life on the sea?”
Having had an interest in healthy eating from a young age I initially decided to study nutrition, and learn more about the “Why” behind food. Having delved into this exciting world I then discovered the power of natural healing which is available through plants, and so herbal medicine became a must, eventually ending in becoming a qualified naturopath.
Why do you choose to work at Noosa Confidential?
My journey with Noosa Confidential started a number of years ago with the Food Team, using my food background to set up the structure and dietary protocol which is now being used with residential and non-residential clients. This gave me the opportunity to see just how powerful the integrated approach to natural healing is and what a great team of people are involved at Noosa Confidential, and so I became more involved in a naturopathic capacity. There are often daily challenges in my work at Noosa Confidential, but I really don’t believe there is anything else I could have chosen to do which would give me the rewards I often experience with clients. My work has taught me so much, which I think is vital to my own self-development, which is then passed on to the clients I work with. Continuing to learn is one of my biggest drivers.
What does a general day look like in your work?
My work is a combination of face to face consultations with clients and phone contact with clients who are about to start their journey with Noosa Confidential or follow up with past clients. Some time is always spent researching and investigating new strategies and approaches to health issues.
Why are you most proud to do the work you do?
To be able to help people make life-changing decisions and put them in to place for the long term is the most rewarding thing I could ever imagine doing.
What is your favourite philosophy for life?
Mark Twain’s words about facing challenges:
“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.”
