Hey there! I’m Jess.
Most days you can find me with a cup of tea or a smoothie in hand, with my denim shorts and comfy vest top, slippers or bare feet and my hair tied up like a pineapple!
I am mostly known for my smiley face, my love of creating healthy edible eats in the kitchen and helping people in whatever way I can.
I am a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer and couldn't love my job more. I see it as a true gift to be able to help people with their health & fitness. The reward I feel when I know I've made a difference to someone's internal world is priceless. The restored confidence people have when they are wearing the clothes they feel comfortable in and they have tons of energy despite eating MORE than they did previously, with no 'dieting' or calorie counting in sight is truly life changing. Empowering people with the tools to fuel themselves deliciously and optimally...I love it.
The things that I am most passionate about are my family, my gorgeous husband Tom and my girlfriends. I love simple things; sitting on the rocks in the sunshine with a picnic, people watching in a cute cafe with a book in hand, or enjoying a bubble bath in a candle-lit room with essential oils.
I love travelling, enjoying meaningful conversations with people and I love exercising; at the moment I'm into Hatha yoga, hiking and HIIT, but I like to vary it up and do whatever makes my body feel great.
When I am not doing that, you'll catch me in my kitchen experimenting away making green juice lollies, various different kinds of hummus (my absolute favourite) or something chocolatey - I have a sweet tooth so anything with cacao or chocolate tasting is an instant winner!
My bucket list is huge! Top on my list is to own a dog! I'd love a Bernese Mountain dog and I know exactly what I'm going to call him, though I'll keep that a surprise incase one day my husband Tom caves in and finally gives me the green light to have one!! He doesn't like big or hairy dogs...a slight kink in the plan! Next up is going to Sanoviv Medical Institute in Mexico. I'd like to have a health MOT there and enjoy two weeks of yoga, meditation and cooking courses with some of my closest family members there as well. My third adventure I'd like to do is a trip to New Zealand with my hubby, exploring the incredible scenery in a camper van.
If that's not enough, & you'd like to know more, here are a 5 things that you might not know….
1. I worked in an orangutang sanctuary in Borneo for a month when I was 18. I looked after an orphaned orang called Gus who was just the sweetest little monkey.
2. I'm scared of spiders; I saw an NLP practitioner twice and my fear is a lot better, but I much prefer creatures with fewer legs!
3. My favourite colour is 'dusty pink'.
4. My favourite fruit is watermelon.
5. I'm obsessed with foot massages/squeezes, I even wove it into our wedding vows so my hubby could agree (infront of witnesses) to massage them every night! On the nights he does, I fall asleep and feel like I'm in heaven.
