I started working at a very young age at a family friends Fish & Chip shop. It was my decision to start working at 11, although my mum was quite hesitant. There were things I wanted that she couldn’t afford to buy and I didn’t see why I couldn’t work to get them for myself. Until I was 22 I worked in a few different retail positions including the Layby Department at Kmart and Just Jeans.
Once I had my Information Technology degree, I was excited to join the corporate world so that I could start working as a Business Analyst and design computer applications. Over the 20 years since I have spent a lot of time in contract positions and had the opportunity to work in England, New Zealand and the USA. I was very fortunate to fill many roles in the software development life cycle, including programmer, report writer, tester, QA Analyst and Sr QA/Business Analyst.
As parents my husband and I have decided that we would like to be the ones to take our children to after school activities, that we’d like to be home to eat dinner with them at night and to tuck them in at night. Most corporate positions don’t allow for this level of flexibility. This lead me to investigate the possibility of turning my 20 year hobby of researching nutritional and alternative health options into a business. I have chosen to represent certain companies as a Distributor or Affiliate based on a genuine belief in their products or services.
