  • Description

    I’m a neurological physiotherapist by background and have a true passion for working with people from all ages and walks of life. My outstanding communication and inter-personal skills have been continuously praised in both my professional and personal life. Prior to my academic training, i worked in hospitality for over 10 years, which has been invaluable in my ability to communicate with most people, even under the most stressful circumstances. Having had to work under extreme time pressures (hospitality) or understaffed and emotional situations (public hospitals) has helped me developed excellent organisational, creative thinking and problem solving skills. I also speak 4 languages and love learning new things.
    I have a true passion for neurological rehabilitation and am a firm believer that activity and movement are key to a healthy life, so I aim to spread this message to as many people as possible.

    I love and practice yoga regularly! I have completed a multi-style 200h teacher training course in India as well as a course in Iyengar yoga , the ultimate dream is that i find a way to combine it my neurological rehab passion. I also practice Vipasssana meditation regularly, believing that a healthy mind is as important as a healthy body, and a key for our happiness within this world.

    Mountains are our element and trekking is another thing we do with all our hearts. With my love for the outdoors, comes also my love for ecology in order to help save our planet I try to pass this message to as many people as possible, and will seek the opportunity to be involved in some eco projects around Asia.
    As much as i love big mountains, I also love the sea, and would love the opportunity to dive and discover the amazing underwater world, and learning to surf/kitesurf is on my life list of skills i must learn soon.

    I’m an abseiler by background, for me is more than a job, it’s a passion.
    Prior to this I was a chef for 10 years, and can cook the most amazing dishes from different corners of the world.
    On my spare time, i’m also a DJ and have played in many festivals around the globe; and i’ve recently taken up drawing, which people say i’m very good at. I have a very creative mind, and i continuously look for ways to express it.
    I’m very passionate about creating either music, drawing or anything i bring to life through my hands, and would be very happy to share it with the world somehow through my experiences.
    I also love mountains and can trek forever; i'm very ecologically focused, and would like to participate in some eco projects around Asia.
    I’m very laid back, yet when needed i'm fully activated :) becoming very active and strong, and believe that i could be most helpful projects that include building and creating.
    I’ve also practiced judo for 15years, and would be very happy to share some of these skills.
    I am a certified open water PADI and would love the opportunity to deepen my skills, as well as perhaps learn to catch some waves.
