Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
I am the founder of Blossom & Berry, a global teacher training organisation helping to empower women to set up their own businesses to teach the importance of love and nurturing care for parents and babies. I have a global network of over 1,000 teachers across the world and five international business partners. I am also a co-founder of the charity Love Support Unite in Malawi, providing sustainable development programs to empower communities in poverty. We fundraise through our amazing Love Specs, which sell at festivals and events around the world. I now also offer elite coaching to women looking to scale their income and impact globally.
What’s the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
Follow the excitement.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your work?
Empowering others to elevate their happiness and success in life. I am an advocate for the power and importance of love in society. Through my work I have seen how love, connection and community can be game changers and help us reach our full potential as humans.
Why do you think it’s important to support other women?
Community is everything. We are born to connect. Acting together and as a collective has greater impact and rewards for everyone.
Which living person do you most admire?
Alice Pulford, the original founder of my charity, Love Support Unite. She went to Malawi at 18 and saw the opportunity to empower communities, and dedicated her time and energy to changing things for the better. She saw the problem but did not walk away. I admire her courage and dedication to her values.
Who inspires you?

What is your motto?
Love creates love. Love yourself and you have created a capacity to bring more love into the world.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Growing my business to reach thousands of parents and babies every year, and, as a result, being able to support more vulnerable mothers and babies in poverty.
What is your favourite thing about being a member of the AllBright?
What does sisterhood mean to you, and who’s in yours?
