I aim to inspire, provoke and build community, ultimately touching the heart with the projects and activities I get involved with igniting transformation for the greater good and wellbeing.
Wise & Beautiful Lulu
Lulu, serendipitously came into my life, and became another of my therapy dogs, bringing her wisdom, guidance and beautiful soul to my life, client sessions, and who touched many lives. When I first saw Lulu, words with her picture said ‘All dogs want is to love us and us to love them right back’. Thank you for all your love. July 2021.
