I’m an ordinary suburban mum who has lived a life that arguably could be described as quite ‘out of the box’ and extraordinary. I am a freelance writer, blogger and editor who has been published in a number of celebrated U.S and Australian based publications. I am also a wellness advocate with an interest in mental health. I strive to create authentic content about everyday life that is real, raw and honest, that resonates with readers because it’s easy to relate to.
I have a lived experience of significant mental health challenges that have played a big part in my spartan like obstacle ridden ultra-marathon course that I call life. I started this website because I see the value and power in sharing experiences through story telling. I want others who have experienced challenges with mental health (including depression and anxiety) to know they’re not alone. I want to share my journey with stories, fun, laughs, good yarns and hopefully we all learn a bit along the way.
Let’s get together and talk all things lifestyle (including travel) and I will share my adventures on overcoming obesity and fighting mental health related stigma. I want to explore opportunities together from business to products I love and even opportunities personal development. There will be writing of course and even more running half marathons to raise some vital funds for suicide prevention along the way. I hope you take solace in my frank and honest approach. I always strive to keep it real. Join my tribe and enjoy life rather than endure it.
