Who am I?
I’m the eldest of 3 kids and had my biggest life lesson when I was only 10 years old when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and given only 6 month to live.
I lived with fear of loss for my mother for many years as my mother continued to live until she eventually lost her life to cancer.
A year after my mothers death, my father committed suicide. A few years after this my teenage sons life was taken tragically.
Through these traumatic losses, I learned how to heal my self to be a survivor not a victim of circumstances after loss. I share these 5 valuable attitudes that has helped me in all areas of my life.
- Lesson 1: Adopt resilience – life is a constant challenge.
- Lesson 2: Adapt to Change – the only constant is change.
- Lesson 3: Attitude of gratitude – live, love life.
- Lesson 4: Appreciation of life – respect that people come and go.
- Lesson 5: Authenticity. live your highest values.
Life is to be enjoyed! Make honesty, integrity and respect your driving force. Foster family ties to live and love, to spend your days filled with laughter and music as often as possible.
I’ve had a very successful professional life both in the corporate world and in my own businesses as entrepreneur. Now I have a successful Coaching practice, my purpose is to inspire ever woman in the world tp see transformation, who like me can be a survivor and not a victim so she can live, love life and find healing after loss.
My advice is to be kind, to laugh more, live more and be more. To believe in your genius ability to impact the lives of others around you in a positive and abundant way, so you can build the life of your dreams that you so much deserve.

HOW LOSS CREATED A JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY
I had everything, I was on top of the world. Life was great. Then I was divorced, left destitute and penniless from having been a 7 figure entrepreneur….Lost my business income, my home and lifestyle.
It felt it was scandalous, I was shattered and wanted to scream but I had to figure out my way to support my kids and myself.
I understand that experiencing life as a single mum raising 3 teenagers, no home, and no partner to lean on is very difficult but I had to conquer my fear and build a happy home.
It turned out to be a blessing in the disguise for me because the hardship I went through with my children brought us very close together. We had a deep bond.
I learned a new respect for myself and my children.
As Deepak Chopra quoted, “All great changes are preceded by chaos.”
Now I have two grownup beautiful and loving daughters, who have made me very proud of their achievements in their personal and professional lives.
I’m grateful for those times together because I’ve now have happy memories of my son who was unexpectedly and tragically killed.
This is the reason why I help other women move through their journey to find peace and live a meaningful life after loss.
Whatever loss means to you, it’s important to create happy memories with confidence on a love journey of self discovery, building a new purpose and strength.
