She has had the seeds of compassion planted in her heart by the Dalai Lama, walked over fire, meditated for six days and screamed primordially from the top of a mountain after ten days in the wilderness to renew mind, body and spirit.
She has written many blogs, writes scripts for and presents training videos and sidelines as a Guest Hair Expert on the Shopping Channel. She is currently studying with The Speakers Institute. She lives between Sydney and the Gold Coast.
