In 1979 I commenced my working life as a Fitness instructor in Canada, a career I enjoyed for over 15 years.
During that time I developed Aerobic Instructor Training courses, training over 400 aerobics instructors; hosted Canada’s first Cable TV fitness show; and facilitated the world’s largest indoor aerobic class 2,000 participants (Edmonton Canada 1982).
After returning to Australia with my husband, I developed seminars and keynote presentations on The Art of Losing Weight Permanently and Surviving Stress.
In 1997 my then 12 year old son David, was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. The subsequent challenges and difficulties required a change in direction for me, and my family.
In 2000, I commenced a new career as the Director of Community Relations for a Queensland Independent school, a position I held for ten years. During that time, I served as the Vice President of ADAPE Queensland (Association of Development Professionals in Education) from 2004 till 2008 and presented at three ADAPE International Conferences on the topics of Educational Marketing.
In April 2010 I released my first book: David’s Gift, the inspirational true story about how I changed from wishing to make my son ‘normal’, to recognising his unique difference and personality and in doing so enabled him to take his first steps towards a less fearful, more connected life.
Today, my son David is 30 years old and lives and works in Montreal.
The story offers hope, inspiration and insight into how to overcome the challenges of Aspergers and Autism for those living with the diagnosis.
More recently, I was introduced to the power of Emotional Freedom Technique – Tapping – often called Emotional Acupuncture; Tapping is a scientifically proven method of helping to reduce the impact of emotional stress and trauma.
In recognising that many women struggle with their weight in particular when creating or starting a business I have developed the Tapping to Reclaim You program to assist business women to recognise and release the blocks that hold them back living their best lives
