I got engaged!


On my birthday last month, my man of almost 12 years, asked me to marry him.

My birthday was everything I could have wished for…

A romantic drive through the misty mountains up to the Hydro Magestic for a wonderful lunch, dramatic vistas and wonderful conversation as we sat and enjoyed each other’s company, a brief shop in beautiful Leura for a spontaneous birthday gift, and then…

Later that evening, Paul sat me on the lounge and told me to close my eyes. When I opened them, there he was, on one knee, holding a magnificent ring and asking me, “Will you marry me?”.

Time stood still as my mind raced… OMGoodness, it’s happening to me!

I got so excited I forgot to say yes! Eventually I collected my wits enough to say “YES! Of course YES”! I could almost hear his sigh of relief.

Why do I care?

I am 54 and I was resigned about ever marrying. I had a story running in my life that I couldn’t have what I wanted (I’d seen this story throughout my life – from never achieving my ideal weight, to losing a pregnancy, to not succeeding financially) so of course I was secretly doubtful that it would ever happen to me.

The last 4 years, everything has changed. 4 years ago I had NO IDEA who I was and what I was capable of.

Now, my world has been rocked. God bless menopause!

What I’m excited to share is that it is just one of many things in my life finally starting to happen!


Stay with me kiddo if you’d like to know more. I would love to share it with you on our journey together.

Let me bring you in on a little secret. I don’t do naturopathy and menopause coaching so people get healthy! No, no, no, no, no! Far from it.

I do what I do because I have a talent for helping people turn their life around from sickness, cynicism, resentment, doubt and resignation to hope, belief, courage, vitality and action. And I can do it because I’m doing it for myself.

Ring posing!

If you’re feeling stuck and alone… floating around in a haze of “I feel like a failure” and you know you’re not taking care of yourself AND your health AND your precious dreams as much as you should – then reach out to me for a complimentary conversation. We’ll discover together what is the biggest problem you are facing right now. I’ll give you a resource that you can keep for life and we’ll discover if we’re a good fit to work with each other.
