When it comes to health and business, I've just about seen it all!

In Business

My journey as an entrepreneur and business woman started in the late 1970s.

After 7 years running our successful kitchen business, I spent 12 years within corporate employment in the City of London, starting as an administrator for consultancy firm within an accountancy practice, then progressing through several roles and firms to become CEO of a law firm and COO of a business consultancy with over 220 members, as well as running many projects as an interim to empower teams to achieve higher results.

In 1997 I graduated with an MBA in Legal Practice from Nottingham Law School. I've since become a multiple #1 best-selling author.

I host my own podcast and have mentored hundreds of individuals and businesses to become more effective, productive, efficient and healthier.

In Health

I have often been referred to as a high achiever and I definitely blurred the lines between work and a balanced life in the past. In 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and again in 2011.

In 2015 I was given one year to live with stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and I've since dealt with skin cancer on my face. I was also born with a rare kidney disease that I reversed when I was around 44 years old.

Over the years I've studied and put many health strategies in place for myself, alongside running various enterprises and raising a family.

I've never been ill as such - merely inconvenienced. I am blessed with a positive outlook and an extremely resilient personality. Taking responsibility for our own health and well being is very important to me to explain and demonstrate to others.

I made a solemn promise to my late Mother that I would share my knowledge, training and experience to teach others how to live a balanced life, reverse serious health and be proactive to avoid a nasty diagnosis.

The Perfect Health HUB was launched in April 5th 2022, exactly 46 years after my father’s untimely death from cancer, aged 46 years old.
