Looking at health from a holistic and lifestyle perspective, she knows that healthy living isn’t about the vegetables you eat, the hobbies you enjoy, or the positive habits you maintain – it’s about all of those things, and a whole lot more.

Before you know it, the stress and pressure of your career can take its toll on your health.
