What inspires me…
I cherish being a hands on mum and playing the busy juggling game that is motherhood - I wouldn't change it for the world.
I believe in being a quality person who makes time for people. I believe in paying it forward -it always feels better to give than receive.
I believe in animals and truly believe we underestimate them in every way. We need to be their voice, to nurture and protect them. For this reason, Smartbite Nutrition donates monthly to Animals Australia and makes regular donations to other animal charities including Humane Society International, and RSPCA.
