Bio The path that led her to this point
I am passionate about storytelling, love that we all have our own lens on life; our own point of view even of the same experiences.
I've had quite a varied career usually following my nose and passion in storytelling via film, TV, theatre, marketing PR, and business ideas.
In 2005 I produced, wrote and acted in Absolution, which played a two-week sell-out season, then it was invited to the Melbourne Arts festival and I won 2005 Debut Producer of the Year at the Perth Theatre Blue Room awards.
In 2006 I won a coveted Film and TV Producing Cadetship funded by WA Department of the Culture and the Arts to work for 12 months with Sue Taylor of Taylor Media, Ross Hutchens of Mediaworld Pictures, and Ian Booth currently CEO of ScreenWest. It included a professional development trip to New York city to work with successful Independent producer Amy Hobby, producer of Hamlet with Bill Murray and Ethan Hawke, and Secretary with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
In 2006 I also produced Celebrating Every Woman, a photographic exhibition and calendar that sold out in one week. This was the seed of my current project, Celebrating Every Woman photographic and documentary.
Between 2007 and 2009 I studied and completed an MBA specializing in International marketing and corporate finance. To help me understand how to harness my instincts into new directions understanding the best ways to accomplish my ideas into realities.
Then in 2009 I began developing Salt Retreats, which combines my various passions of yoga, surfing, gourmet organic dining, world-class spa treatments, and gorgeous peaceful tropical surroundings all under one roof. My daughter's autism treatments at the time were a pivotal point of change from media producing full-time into wellbeing. Also before my corporate career I trained as a Iyengar Yoga teacher and my yoga practice has been a constant throughout my whole life, so Salt is the culmination of my passion for wellbeing, body care and loving life to the full!
