The passion: What inspired you to set up your business?
Achieving balance in life has always been the key to happiness for me and something I continuously work hard at. When diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30, the balance in my life was seriously challenged, but I was determined not to let the diagnosis and treatment take over. My biggest fear was losing my fertility. I desperately wanted to have children with my fiancé.
Turning to my education in nutrition and health, I discovered I could manage the immense emotional stress I was feeling and support my energy levels to continue enjoying aspects of life such as planning my wedding! With 2 rounds of fertility preserving IVF, a mastectomy and 1 round of chemo under my belt, I pulled a wig firmly on my head and walked down the aisle to start the rest of my life.
Two years and nine months later, we welcomed our first child into the world and the balance was shifted again. Tiredness set in, but once again I noticed the profound results on my physical and emotional health when I applied my knowledge of nutrition and took care of my nervous system. I felt so grateful to have the tools to support myself and was absolutely bursting to share my knowledge to help other women cope with the demands of parenting. I said goodbye to the corporate world and set up the Zesty Fox Nutrition practice.

The challenge: What health issues do you help your clients with?
My clients typically want to increase energy levels and feel more emotionally balanced, so they have the capacity to enjoy parenting in a mindful and nurturing way. It is common to see women who even years after giving birth, still suffer from post-natal nutrition depletion and weight gain that they no longer feel comfortable with. These amazing mothers are just too busy and tired to change their eating and lifestyle habits. Some common health issues I help my clients manage are fatigue, changes in mood, digestive problems, skin issues, hormonal symptoms, emotional eating and weight gain.
