1. What made you become a health care practitioner?
My journey into learning about health and disease prevention started in 2006 after I was diagnosed with mouth cancer. I started researching and learning primarily for my open health but then I began to realise that there were so many people out there that are confused about health and what they should be doing to make sure they stay in peak condition. I know this feeling because I used to be one of those people. I also wanted to help as many people avoid diseases instead of trying to get themselves better after the horse had bolted, trust me its much easier to prevent than cure.
2. When did you start?
I have been helping people for many years but officially started my business, Flourish Wellbeing 3 years ago.
3. What is the best thing for you about your work?
The satisfaction of knowing that I have made a positive impact on someone’s health and life. Nothing gives me more pleasure that to see and hear the change in people for the better.
4. What is the biggest challenge you face being a health care practitioner?
Trying to get people to unlearn some of the things they have been taught. When for decades they have been told something is the best way for their health and then I having to try and get them to understand the latest scientific research which says the opposite.
5. What advice would you give to people who are passionate about doing something similar to you and to following their own dreams?
Believe in yourself, have a strong vision and feel the fear and do it anyway! You only get one go at life, so follow your dreams so that you can look back in your old age and have no regrets.
