My Story

born-in-australia.jpg

Born and raised in Australia.

I moved to the United States with my husband, 3 children, cat and dog in 2012.

In my career as a Registered Nurse I worked in a variety of settings.

My favorite was my time in Neo-natal Intensive Care. I loved looking after premature babies.

I am a big believer in the medicinal and healing properties of food.

A healthy outside starts from the inside. Cooking and making people happy by feeding them delicious and nutritious food is something that gives me great joy. Back in 2009 a friend suggested I sell my food, and so began my personal catering business.... 'Passionfood.... Cooking With love.'

Gluten free cooking.

Four members of my family have Celiac Disease so I am your go-to-girl for anything to do with Gluten Free....we have been eating that way for the past 10 years.


What's important in my life:

 

In life we should all make the most of something called our 'Free Square.' 

Your 'Free Square' is a quality that comes naturally and effortlessly to you. For me I would say that is relating to people, truly empathizing with their situation and enabling them to feel comfortable to share their story with me. I believe this ability enhances my skills as a Health Coach to dig deeper and bring out the best in others.
