A surprising new adventure..

I’ve been a city girl all my life – born and raised in Sydney with a stint in London a few years ago. But I’m now in the pretty amazing position of laying down roots in country NSW. Our new home is in the Southern Highlands, backing onto a bush reserve.

When we first saw the property I was overwhelmed with emotion – I literally cried as we walked around and keeping a straight face in front of the agent was not an option!

The previous owners built it all, starting with a bush block in the 1980s and over time creating a beautiful timber house and a garden based on permaculture principles, abundant with food.

So I guess I’m a country girl now.

You will still find me in clinic (West Street Wellbeing in North Sydney) on Wednesdays and Thursdays, talking hormones and playing detective to help you better understand your health concerns.

But life has changed a lot! The slower pace is a lovely contrast to the energy of Sydney and I’m learning new lessons about work-life balance, the rhythms of commuting and the therapeutic effect of getting my hands in the dirt.

So if I seem a little more relaxed than usual when you see me in clinic – this is why :)
