Life, Loss, Love with Liv.
Liv is a stunner. Not just because she has the longest legs, beautiful blue eyes and unique features . . . . but because she is one of the most gorgeous, radiant people to be around. She’s a stunner inside and out (so corny but it’s true!).
We talk the ups and downs of life, the way food, quality of air and lifestyle can affect things like your hair and skin and why working from the inside out is always the best way.
If you didn’t know Liv you could be mistaken by thinking she has been blessed in all areas of life and has never gone through many hardships. She’s obviously beautiful she has style, she’s happy, she owns a house in Fairlight, she has her own business, she’s a pilates teacher. She’s had a blessed life. And of course anyone that lives in Australia is blessed in many ways but Liv is happy and radiant despite going through many hardships and this is what makes her so beautifully unique.
Thing is, Liv lost both her parents to cancer within 18 months and at around the same time her husband had a heart transplant.
During this time, my husband was diagnosed with degenerative disease that lead to hypertrophic cardio myopathy, his only option was heart transplant – his health was on the edge while waiting for a transplant.
Penelope: What sparked your interest to study nutrition?
I used to be a fashion brand manager and while I did enjoy elements of the career path, I always had a deep urge to be in a career where I was helping people. After losing both my parents to cancer within 18 months I became even more determined to fulfil this desire. I first started a nursing degree however quickly realised this role didn’t suit my passions and desired lifestyle. When you grieve, what is a positive is the clarify of life that is to be optimally enjoyed, I have always been passionate about wholesome eating and fitness, the choice was under my nose my entire life!
