“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women working together”
Michelle Obama

I previously owned an events and marketing company for over 12 years called ‘Alpheus Leisure’ working in the travel and tourism sector. My specialist location was focused primarily in the Caribbean island of Barbados. Previous work experience includes the coordination of a variety of projects ranging from planning weddings to consulting for event management teams working on sports, health and fitness programmes.  The ‘One Life Live it Well’ retreats arranged in Barbados by a professional group of yoga teachers and spiritual practitioners were well attended by visitors from the UK.

I have also worked as a Consultant on several key major sports events of which a highlight was the Cricket World Cup held in Barbados. My experience and knowledge of the Caribbean has seen me coordinate numerous weddings at highly prestigious venues where in some cases over 100 guests have attended.

After a health scare, I sold my company ‘Alpheus Leisure’ and opted to return to the UK on a more permanent basis. A new chapter developed in the Health and Wellbeing Sector as my passion for Yoga took over. I used this as a support not only to aid my own health but also the integral importance it has for many others. I trained as a Children’s Yoga teacher and set up classesworking at local Schools together with private sessions involving children with disabilities.

I met Vee a few years ago and found her Yoga teachings exceptional and so it was a natural progression based on our backgrounds that our ‘spirits’ would intertwine.  Having an entrepreneurial outlook on life, I very much look forward to combining my business skillset in working with Vee on the Eudaimonia Retreat and other potential future projects.
