Hi I’m Michele. I’m 33, mum of two and wife to Dave. I was born in Zimbabwe, lived there till I was 8 years old and then we moved to Perth, Western Australia.
I have spent my entire working life teaching children; swimming, lifesaving, in child care centres and schools. I studied Sports Science at ECU followed by a Diploma of Education (Primary). After this I got a job with Bluearth as a ‘Physical Education Coach’ which was an awesome job. I got to work outdoors with students and teachers in schools, teaching them a holistic, engaging and challenging approach to Physical Education. Unfortunately the job required a lot of driving around to schools and after 4 years in it I still felt like I didn’t ‘belong’ anywhere. From this I managed to land a classroom teaching job in one of the schools I was doing Bluearth. I enjoyed the change and being settled, but it was only a couple of years before I fell pregnant.
When my son was born, he had some digestive issues which opened up a whole new world of ‘health’ to me. I had previously thought being healthy was being active and I was learning how vital gut health is. I spent 2 years learning about and following various diets for my son and also myself as I was uncovering and dealing with my own digestive health issues. Wanting to share my learning, I started this blog while I was pregnant with number 2. Around the same time I was introduced to DoTerra oils which has added another dimension of wellbeing that I like to share with others.
On the path of whole body wellbeing I then discovered Educational Kinesiology – ‘Brain Gym’. Brain Gym uses movements to create new pathways in the brain. It was the perfect addition to my qualifications as it combined everything from my past studies and combines my passion for movement and wellbeing. The blog took a back seat while I spent a year studying units to become a qualified Brain Gym Consultant. It blows my mind what can be achieved with Brain Gym and being able to make positive changes for myself and others is very rewarding. For more information on Brain Gym head to my welcome page.
