When I was 10 my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer, during her chemo I witnessed the underestimated impact of how food, products and our lifestyles affect our health and started questioning whether there were better alternatives within the industry.
I had ongoing digestive complications and at the start of 2013, I was diagnosed gluten and lactose intolerant, not long after I was also diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue due to intense and prolonged stress. It left me feeling completely exhausted, down and anxious. Balancing yoga and meditation with a healthy lifestyle and treatment meant I was able to bounce back.
From my experiences, I wanted to educate and support people by offering avenues to improve individuals’ health and wellness. Drawing on my corporate background in Event Management with 7 years experience working for the world's largest exhibition company, I knew I had the ability to turn this passion into a business that I would be empowered to work for everyday and that could really benefit others.
The ‘ah ha’ moment or ‘epiphany’ came after my Aunty was diagnosed with breast cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy. She expressed her sadness at the fact that her get-well flowers she received would die quickly; which isn’t something you want to be thinking about while being treated for cancer. I saw there was a clear gap in the market to provide gifts that lasted, yet would still provide happiness and wellness. This lead to the creation of my Cancer Wellness hampers that includes products that let them know they have the support of others, with $5 of each hamper sold being donated to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation - a dedication to my mum & Aunty.
Living Organic Co. is based on a philosophy of achieving wellness in mind, body and spirit, which is something I am adamant about in my own life and encourage those around me to prioritise.
