My primary motivation is to connect with others with genuine warmth and care and to serve my community with enthusiasm, friendliness, respect and integrity. I am organised and punctual (sometimes a bit of a perfectionist…I am working on it!) and committed to a life of growth and contribution. I smile.
I give myself a hard time, I fall down….but I stand back up more quickly and dust myself off with much more kindness.
I became a Physiotherapist in 2003 and had my first job as the sole Physio at a special needs school in Rockingham. Eek!. I fell down…a lot! I then worked for the Disability Services Commission, The Cerebral Palsy Alliance and in several roles in the National Health Service in the UK. I developed many skills and met many incredibly inspiring people AND I burnt out! Since then, it has been my life’s vision to understand WHY I burnt out, how to build myself back up, and to not go to that place again. This is what I want to share in The Self-Kindness Project.
