We have a new mama here at at GFM HQ.
Hello, its so good to meet you. I’m Lisa. I feel so honoured to be taking over the reins at Green Foot Mama, so Olivia can spend more time on The Kindfulness Project.
I’m loving the process of getting to know this amazing community of kindred spirits who share in a desire for authentic, effective, harm-free products for a better world.
I was raised near the sea by my organic veggie-growing, whole-food loving, hippy astrologer, naturopath Mum. My childhood was free-range. We lived in several hippy communes where I learned the virtues of nutrient-dense organic foods, self-sufficiency, and natural wellness. I also observed the healing power of Mother Nature.
Several decades later, having forged a career in the fast-paced world of IT, spanning London, New York and San Francisco, I was ready to settle down and raise a family.
Or at least I thought I was ready.
I had trouble getting pregnant and, when I did conceive, I suffered painful miscarriages.
It took some soul-searching to realise my mind and body were not in balance. I needed to return to the natural living principles of my youth to heal myself. I turned my back on polluted city living and the long hours and poor food habits of my stressful IT career to emigrate to coastal Australia.
Now I embrace a more natural lifestyle – nourishing my body and mind with good food, yoga and meditation, and renewing my connection with Mother Nature on a daily basis.
I’m so glad I trusted my instincts.
My gorgeous daughter was born the day before my 43rd birthday… and actually that is how I first discovered Green Foot Mama – while looking for organic baby skin care products for my little one.
Thank you for taking a moment to get to know me and thank you for embracing Green Foot Mama. I look forward to getting to know you all.
