Wine, Women & Wow! 2014 presents SPOTLIGHT ON VENDORS

SallyLove spotlightWWW: Sally, your accent tells me you’re not native to Hood River – where are you from and what brought you here?

SL: I‘m British and very new to this magnificent valley, only moved here a year ago.  My journey to Hood River was beautiful serendipity.  For many years I intuitively felt that Italy would play an important role in my life at some point. Then one day, soon after graduating from nutrition college, I flicked on a light switch and made the decision in that split second to move to Italy!  Three months later, I took a leap of faith and moved to Florence.  I left behind a successful well-being practice in London and regular appearances on a TV show to move to somewhere I had never been before.  I had moved out of my comfort zone and stepped into what I hoped would be an exciting new beginning.  It was.  This stunningly beautiful city was my home for 2 years.  I loved every second of it and thought I was going to remain in Italy for the rest of my life – but fate took me down another new path.  A lovely American man was on holiday in Florence.  We met, fell in love, got married.  We bought a beautiful home that sits half-way up a mountain, nestled among 25 acres of breathtaking landscape.  

WWW: London to Florence to Hood River, wow! Have you always worked as a health professional?

SL: Throughout my early life I have been very drawn to the healing and caring professions.  I worked as a theatre nurse, an au-pair, a medical secretary and I enjoyed many successful years working in diabetes health care for a global medical device company.  Since then I have studied healing, meditation, life & wellness coaching and of course natural nutrition (to name a few!) Another dream of mine is now coming to fruition as I and my husband grow our own organic produce and I prepare to open my CrapFREE retreat space.

WWW: I’m loving the name! What do you mean by “CrapFREE”?

SL: CrapFREE is a synergy of nearly 30 years of work, travel and study. Living CrapFREE means a life free from the crappy things that destroy our health, vitality and happiness.  Whether that is physical, emotional, mental or spiritual – I love supporting people to make significant changes in their lives. CrapFREE is more than a business – it is my philosophy on life.  It is how I live.  I am passionate about sharing my knowledge, to help people live CrapFREE.
