Kia ora I'm a naturopath and craniosacral therapist living on a beautiful rural bush property in Golden Bay, snuggled between two national parks in the north-west corner of the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. Yes - I live in paradise! I love to travel to distant destinations and always love coming home to our nurturing natural landscapes and friendly community. When I'm not working with clients in my home clinic our beaches and bush walks are my playground, and paddling around our beautiful bays with my waka ama crew is always a delight. I enjoy stories so watching movies at our Village Theatre, meeting friends at one of our great local cafes or relaxing at home with a good book are regular pleasures. The nearby Mussel Inn Bush Cafe is our friendly local meeting place. I sing with our world music choir Zing, and I'm learning to speak Aotearoa's other official language, te reo Maori. There's lots to explore and experience in our beautiful corner of the world.
