🌱 Holistic Health Practitioner at ScentSprout
Hello there!I am Jeannie, a wife, a mother, a lover of all things holistic, and a proud individual who carries the dual diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD). Each role I inhabit and every experience I face have contributed to the woman I am today – resilient, compassionate, and determined to make a positive difference in the world.My journey of motherhood introduced me to two amazing souls; a daughter born 1996 and a son born 2015. My son was diagnosed with autism in 2017. This experience has been both challenging and enlightening. It has opened my eyes to the incredible beauty of neurodiversity and deepened my commitment to championing inclusivity and understanding.I am also a certified Holistic Health Practitioner. My training has illuminated my path towards self-discovery, healing, and growth. With a special affinity for aromatherapy, I find it fascinating how certain scents can influence our mental and emotional states. My passion also extends to various holistic modalities, as I believe in the power of a balanced mind, body, and spirit to achieve optimum health and wellbeing.Living with ASD and AvPD, I understand that my mind works differently, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. However, I've also learned to see these as unique strengths that provide me with a distinctive perspective of the world around me. I take each day as it comes, continually learning to manage and navigate the complexities of life with these conditions.Welcome to my world, where chaos meets calm, where challenges meet growth, and where uniqueness is celebrated.
