About Healthy Steps
Over the last 20 years I have learned how small, gradual changes can have a huge impact on health and wellbeing. I now share my knowledge and experience with individuals and corporates through a unique combination of online education, mindful movement and outdoor activities. I work with organisations and individuals throughout Warwickshire and beyond.
To inspire and enable you to feel as well as you can possibly feel.
In 2000, I was a career driven IT Executive, thriving in the corporate environment, and prospering in a challenge driven industry. Plus, I absolutely loved my job!
Then an unexpected health situation encouraged a change of direction, almost a choice between ‘health or wealth’.
I was diagnosed with a form of rheumatoid arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) and told that my spine was fusing. At the time, most of my day was spent sitting down (either at a desk or in the car). I was told to consider a career where my days could be more flexible.
I decided to take control of my wellbeing and took the opportunity to retrain and begin a whole new career path in the floristry industry.
More health challenges presented in 2017 when I was told that I needed a full knee replacement.
I knew that I would not be able to continue with the business that I had built and the need for another change of direction was called for.
Adapting to new challenges, retraining, and helping people in a similar situation to the one I found myself in are powerful skills to have, and a joy to share.
My health is now better than I could ever have imagined.
In 2019, I even took part in two ‘Super Sprint Triathlons’ and I am looking forward to many more!
