Insight and Foresight
Thought Leader and Entrepreneur
Over the breadth of my 30-year career I have launched initiatitves, developed product ranges, pioneered new industry sectors. When I felt what was needed at the core of my being I knew something needed to change and believed that if I could see it then I could build it or work with others to create new possibilties. In the mid 80’s from a small investment of just $65,000, I co-founded and launched In Essence Aromatherapy. It was more than a brand, we created a new lifestyle for women, we lived and breathed our values and our message from the employee experience to customer engagement. People needed to learn this healing art and so we created an International College, authoring 6 books along the way, selling 500,000 copies globally.
When the company was sold in 1999, I had not anticpated the loss I would feel and in the grieving process of losing my tribe and my community, I knew others all over the world have experienced loss and questioned ‘where do we go when our hearts are broken?’. And so I wrote my next book ‘Sacred Spaces’
