I'm a Jazz Singer, Singing Teacher &  Mindset Coach as well as the founder of Fearless Singer - a blog dedicated to helping people manage their fear and find their voice. 

I am also a passionate essential oils educator. In fact this website is a big mushy love fest for dōTERRA's essential oils. I use them daily for my personal well-being, vocal health and in my teaching studio. They have had a profound impact on my life, as well as on the lives of my friends and family. 

My mission is to get these oils into the lives of singers, musicians, teachers, performers, mothers, creative souls and big dreamers.

Why? Because I know without a doubt they will be an incredible support for your creative practice, business and  health. 

My Oils Story: 
I started using essential oils mid-2017. They came to me during a particularly stressful period of my life caused by overcommitting myself, left, right and centre. To give you a snapshot, I was running my singing studio along with a side hustle, gigging all over Queensland, trying to have some resemblance of a social life while completing post-graduate studies. To sum it up, I was a HOT MESS! I was exhausted, experiencing anxious feelings and as a result would suffer from serious lows. When I think back, I just feel so sorry for my poor Mum who would receive the teary (hysterical!) phone calls. 

Enter the Oils:  
Most people experience the oils through classes or Wellness Advocates giving them samples. I hadn't even smelt one of doTERRA's oils before buying my kit. I actually discovered them through a friend on Facebook.

It was the case of Facebook's algorithms changing and I began to see more posts in my newsfeed from a woman I had met a year or so previously at a networking event. 

It was a combination of fate as well as her courage and generosity to consistently show up on social media to share her story, that brought these oils into my life when I needed them the most. 

Not only was she describing her own personal story with the oils, she would post snippets of herself teaching at large events, traveling and spending time with her family, collaborating with other wellness entrepreneurs and essentially living an incredibly inspiring life. She was (and still is) the embodiment of service and abundance. I wanted in! So I got in touch and bought my kit.

I let my nose be the judge: 
Honestly, it was love at first sniff. I had dabbled in essential oils before but I had never experienced the therapeutic benefits that doTERRA's oils afford us. I had also never smelt such a high quality essential oils product before.  One thing I know for sure about me - my nose is a good judge of character. 

Fast forward to now: 
My life is still pretty busy, I'm not going to lie. But I am managing things so much better. I have eliminated some negative behaviours and stories from my life. I'm way less impulsive and far more productive than I have ever been while still making time for my self-care. I feel like a much better singer, teacher and performer - just from managing my stress levels better with the help of these beautiful oils. 

My Family: 
The most humbling and rewarding thing for me about discovering the oils is the positive effect they are having on my family. My mother is sleeping for the first time after years of insomnia, which was possibly caused by constant worrying about her children. My Grandmother was sick on the day of her 80th birthday and the oils helped her pull through. You can read about that here. One of my gorgeous Aunties is also loving doTERRA's Lifelong Vitality Pack and believes they are supporting her with an ongoing health issue. 

Lifelong friendships
One of the best aspects of the oils journey so far is being a part of the doTERRA family and meeting other passionate, generous Wellness Advocates. Some of these  I know, without a doubt, will be my lifelong friends.
