Starting as a buyer 20 years ago and then moving into presenting on home shopping networks - my passion for green beauty and fashion has grown to the point of obsession - a good obsession.
It All Started When...
In 2001 my career took a major shift. For 10 Years I had been a sales rep and account manager for home appliances brands like Fisher and Paykel, Chef and Dishlex. I could sell a fridge like no one else. (kidding but I did love it).
However my creative side was longing for a shift and when the position arose for buyer at TVSN for the electrical department I was ready, 18 months in I was buyer for the beauty category and not long after that, I resigned as a buyer and auditioned as a presenter. Scary stuff - leaving a full time salary for a freelance TV presenter gig but a decision I never regretted.
Presenting Live TV Shopping
In my time presenting on home shopping I have literally clocked up thousands of live hours researching, prepping, presenting and analysing beauty, wellness and fashion brands from around the world.
What has evolved over the last few years has been my passion for reducing toxins and harsh chemicals within my own personal care and beauty routine. Also my desire to minimise waste and to protect and nurture our planet through simple choices and actions.
The Greenhouse Retreats
In 2017 I launched The Greenhouse Retreats. Holiday accomodation with wellness inclusions - it's where women like me can get away with their besties or families and take care of themselves via connection, rest, laughter and movement. We offer just the accommodation with loads of beautiful wellness inclusions like organic beauty, tea and wellness products peppered throughout the house.
