Born and raised in Germany, I knew from a young age that I would travel far from the seriousness of German culture, where I could live a creative and exciting life. It came as no surprise to my family when, at the age of 19, I announced I was moving to Australia – and the rest, as they say, is history!
My professional journey took me on many different adventures – working as a remedial massage therapist, spa manager, apprentice chef and caterer, Pilates teacher, owner of a fermented foods business, wellness advocate for dōTERRA Essential Oils, and, ultimately, a successful entrepreneur combining my diverse skills and passions. Now I’m sharing this passion with anyone who wants to be inspired and transformed.
My personal health journey began when I contracted a stomach bug while travelling in Indonesia in my early 20s; my gut and overall health began a downward spiral. I had lost count of all the practitioners I saw, all the tests I took, all the supplements I tried, and all the money I spent! But nothing helped. Bad digestive problems, chronic infections, low immunity, depression, and anxiety made my life a living hell.
It’s hard to stay positive when the negative aspects of your health prevent you from fully participating in life. It’s easy to feel isolated and lonely. I had many dark days while struggling with my symptoms.
Through education (and a lot of trial and error), I was able to turn my life around. I cleaned out my food choices for good – not as a diet but as a life-long commitment – and introduced mindfulness and meditation practices. I was able to accept my body’s needs and then accept myself for who I am; today I feel more healthy, vibrant, inspired, and the most authentic version of myself that I have ever been in my life.
