I was born in New Zealand, Aotearoa - land of the long white cloud and an intrinsic Maori Culture.
First country in the world to give women the right to vote, endorsing 3 female Prime Ministers since.
I am a proud daughter of Ngati Kahungunu and Irish ancestry and I grew in the arms of courage and love. Although by many standards a humble beginning, when you sit at your whanau (family) table and know that you belong, your life is already rich beyond measure. My mother is the greatest champion of unconditional love that I will ever know.
Later when Australia became home, her warm spirited people and abundance of opportunity embraced me and grew my confidence outside of my family circle.
From a shy country girl, I became a dynamic Recruiter and lived my dream to travel the world. I married, had kids but later divorced. Through it all, I cherished most, my journey as a mother. As a working sole parent, like so many others, I faced tests of resilience, frustration and exhaustion, yet the love of my children always inspired me to keep looking up, to be more, to grow.
So when they left home, it was time to find new inspiration. I had to ask myself some big questions. I became super curious about this new season of my life. It was exciting to begin to explore again.
It quenched a thirst in me.
Every adventure starts with the first step.
Saying YES is powerful.
Meeting women who were fascinated by life gave me a profound
respect for the greatness within all of us. The comfort of sitting in
"safe" Circles amongst those who could share their experiences
with heartfelt generosity, unfolded more of me again.
The adventures I chose introduced me to unmet sides of myself. When you walk through the
African wilderness and sleep unprotected under the stars there is no choice but to meet yourself
deeply. Swimming alongside majestic Whalesharks over the Ningaloo Reef was humbling,
and being a "model" (pretending only!) in a photoshoot in romantic Venice was super cool fun and playtime!
I've held the hands of women walking ancient lands chanting precious songs of Native Indian grandmothers. I've ridden horses through Belizian forests and swum in jungle rivers. I have taken a "spiritual" bath in a sacred garden on a mountaintop and I've sat in the Australian desert under the stars listening to dreamtime stories, the iconic didgeridoo sinking rhythms into my soul.
Did I ever imagine I would do such things? No of course not lol! Not in a million years.
But when I began to say YES ... these experiences became some of the pages of my story. And I am grateful.
How will you choose to fill the pages of your story?
Love Your Journey has been inspired as a soft space to rest, nourish, relax and rejuvenate. Here you'll have time to
re-ignite your sense of curiosity, and bring that playfulness and joy back into focus. Whether the journey you choose is big or small, the important thing is to allow it for yourself.
I am forever grateful for those who have supported my journey, but especially to my mother, grandmother and aunties who taught me the treasure of belonging.
And so it is my pleasure to provide space for you to belong, and to find your own version of freedom.
Come Journey with us!
