Creative Partner & Creative Director
As an artist, I love all things ‘beauty’. As a health-conscious yogini, I know the power of health and its effect on us both inside and out. As an avid traveller soul-surfer, I know that no matter where we are, we all have the same vibrant soul within us. As a creative director, I know I have the experience and vision to create brands which make a positive impact on how women feel. As a citizen of the world, I want to use what I have learned to make a difference. Meeting Andrew 2 years ago in Rome, I knew in an instant that all of my experiences led me to that moment. I leapt to volunteer. Having the opportunity to create a sustainable life-changing impact for millions of households in rural Africa is deeply motivating to me. They say all roads lead to Rome. I say all roads lead to Aduna.
