  • Description

    Description

    I am a very social, hard working, focused, happy and determined person, who loves all elements of outdoor life, passionate about nature and great holistic food. I practice eating vegan and vegetarian food and operate a business doing just that.
    I have lived in the UK all my life and have travelled many places in the world. I now live in Jamaica on the North Coast where there are miles of golden sand beaches, which are approximately 10 minutes walk or 2 minute drive.
    My mother and myself have a small cottage that we rent to holiday makers and travellers throughout the year. We now plan to redevelop our hidden paradise into a relaxing, tranquil Health Sanctuary/ Retreat with yoga. Our mission is to create a more Eco-Friendly,eclectic, artist, holistic and self sufficient environment on the property grounds. We think outside the box and anything is possible in this life. It is our ethos to turn all our dreams and creations into reality, regardless of the challenges, and hurdles. That;s the making of success and happiness. The aim is to create a mystical happening with the resources we have.
