About Me

VERSION 1

 

Hi!  I’m Bernadette.

I am an Australian natural health enthusiast and educator, living in Houston, Texas.   I’m also a wife and Mumma to a spirited toddler.

I started my journey into health care by studying a Bachelor of Nursing.   I have been a registered nurse for 8 years, working for the majority of my career in emergency medicine.

In my early years working as a nurse, I experienced some personal health which were greatly helped by natural medicine interventions.  It was through researching my conditions, working with natural health practitioners and experiencing my own healing journey that I developed a passion for naturopathy.

The more I learnt about holistic health, the more I thought, “Why doesn’t everyone get to learn this stuff?  What if everyone had access to this information!”.  I made it my mission to get educated in functional natural medicine.  I now strive help people feel VITAL, not just ensure their vital signs were within an “normal” range.

I completed a Bachelor of Health Science (naturopathy) in 2015 and have had the honor of consulting individual clients as well as speaking at workshops, health events and online summits.

While I was studying naturopathy, also I trained as a yoga teacher.  I love what yoga practice does for my body, mind and spirit, and I love to share that with others.  Whilst pregnant, I completed prenatal yoga teacher training.  See my current yoga teaching schedule here.
