Hello, and thank you for looking further to find out a little more about me.
I am a professionally qualified teacher, with many years of experience in the education world. From primary and early childhood, to ski kindy and the outdoor world, I have enjoyed every minute. I love learning, and I am happiest working alongside anyone of any age in any environment when we are exploring, sharing, building and growing together as our journeys overlap.
I am inspired by Neuro Linguistic Programming and Timeline Therapy, and feel privileged that this is also something that I now offer, as I continue to seek to support teachers, parents and children. For me it is Soul Care, and the difference I see that it makes to people of any age is powerful.
You will find me weaving these techniques into my work every day alongside children and their parents and teachers. Well-being is important for everyone; it is hard to give what you do not have.
Because of this weave of parenting, teaching and well-being, I call myself Interwoven.
I enjoy being interwoven with the team at Your Life Live It, where we all aspire to make a difference in our own, respective fields.
I would love to help you, too.
If you have read this far, do please take one more step and get in touch, and allow me to learn a little more about you. That small beginning? You are on your way…
A little more about me:
I love life and making the most of every opportunity to explore it more. I love people and I enjoy conversation and stories, especially over coffee. I also value time spent by myself on occasions. I love to read, losing myself in other people’s places and lives, real or imagined, and I play the guitar and flute. I love places, languages and culture. I read and speak French and Spanish and have worked in both France and Spain. I have also begun to learn Te Reo Māori. I enjoy travelling and tramping, especially to places slightly off the beaten track. I also love being a part of the church world and finding those connections wherever I go.
I immigrated to New Zealand with my husband and son at the end of 2008 to fulfil our dream of a life that is less about competition and the fast lane, and more about what is important to us as a family. We chose Queenstown because of our love for the mountains and our favourite family activity of skiing. Time is a commodity we don’t always think about and yet its finiteness makes it of infinite value. Living my dream already, I will take plenty of time to enjoy it to the full.
