SO.. WHAT IS Revitalize Lifestyle?

I created Revitalize Lifestyle to create sustainable positive change in the work place, facilitating a whole range of Corporate Wellness programs as well as working in my Wellness clinic seeing clients 1:1.  It then developed into including workshops and lifestyle wellness retreats.

HOW DID REVITALIZE LIFESTYLE COME ABOUT + to life?

I previously worked in the travel and tourism industry which I loved.  However, the travel industry was highly stressful, we usually worked 12-14 hour days, 6 days a week and travelled extensively around the world, it was a thriving industry, however after contracting Schistosomiasis in Africa I became very unwell and the disease lead to me having CFS and Fibromyalgia amongst other conditions.  In 1999 I had to resign from the travel industry and was bedridden for months until I took my health into my own hands and enrolled into a Naturopathy degree and a few years later Revitalize Lifestyle was born!

HOW LONG HAS REVITALIZE LIFESTYLE BEEN + RUNNING FOR?

I began Revitalize Lifestyle in Melbourne in 2002 before moving to the Surf Coast in 2006.

EVERYBODY HAS SOMETHING… what do YOU love about your job?

Meeting people from all walks of life and assisting them to achieve their health, wellness and life goals/vision.  My favorite part is witnessing the transformation in my clients, seeing them create a positive mindset that allows them to change all aspects in their life.  Being able to provide clients with strategies and techniques that they can use on a daily basis to allow them feel healthy, full of energy, motivated and focused.  It’s inspiring to watch and I love that I can be a part of their journey.

IS YOUR JOB EXCITING… or do you just get to sit back + with bunches of people at retreats all the time?

It’s always exciting, inspiring, fun and rewarding.  Every retreat and workshop is different as each group of people bring different experience, personalities and ideas with them and I tailor each workshop and retreat to what my clients need and want.

LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE… what’s planned for the future of Revitalize Lifestyle?

Some exciting workplace programs and retreats will be released this year and I am presenting at various national conferences which is always fun.  I am also very excited about a Wellness Adventure tour that will be released later in the year.  Keep your eyes peeled.
