Hello! I’m Rebecca. This is my place for all things wellness, especially focusing on the mental health benefits of good wellbeing. I’m a passionate trainer and facilitator, experienced project manager and I’m committed to supporting the non-for-profit workforce through continuous learning, professional development and enhanced initiatives.
I’m also a self-taught baker and cook, a reforming sugar junkie and lover of time in the kitchen for stress relief. In working on my own journey towards greater health, I became increasingly aware of the relationships between food and mental wellbeing.
My years of working in the non-for-profit world has also shown me that this information about health and wellness is not always being provided to the clients we work for. Or that the message is, maybe it’s so out of reach for those we support, it isn’t worth trying.
But if you’re not asking the questions, who is?
Everyone deserves to have information and support to make the best choices they can, and make changes in a way that is achievable, realistic and sustainable. I’m passionate about making sure this message is delivered loud and clear, and that workers have the support to take this on, with clear, actionable strategies that can be easily implemented as a part of routine care.
I’m here to support you, smile and provide the occasional kick-in-the-pants to help you feel confident and motivated to take on this challenge. I love to tell a good story, but I promise there is always a point and something to learn from my rambles.
Up for a road trip? Promise I’ll let you pick some songs along the way…
