Short Story: I’m 30-something writer from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia, but I’m currently slow-travelling around Canada with my husband and podcast co-host, Ben, and our two kids. I love books (Stephen King forever), comedy, naps and campfires.

Longer Story: After being diagnosed with severe post natal depression in 2011, I embarked on a one-woman mission to cut out the excess in my life and reconnect with what was really important.

I learnt about minimalism and simplicity, immersed myself in the Slow Living philosophy and discovered the beautiful benefits of living with less.

Over 2 years I decluttered more than 25,000 items, created a Slow Home and rediscovered my health, my passion, my energy, my spark.


Since coming to understand the huge benefits of living a slower, simpler life, it’s become my mission to help others define and achieve their slow living goals. I’ve written at Slow Your Home for seven years and have been hosting The Slow Home Podcast since April 2015, in which time we’ve connected with millions of people, introducing them to the ideas behind slow living, and helping them find space for slow – even on the busiest days.

I’ve also written two books, Destination Simple and SLOW, which have been published in over 10 different languages.

Every Friday we also send out The Slow Post – a lovely little letter straight to your inbox, where we share slow living inspiration, podcast updates and some behind the scenes shenanigans on occasion. You can sign up to get The Slow Post here.
