Bio

Hi, my name is Megan and I am the founder and inspiration behind Heal.ed Tribe and Sumone. I am the mother of two incredible and independent young people. I am a psychology graduate, a teacher, a kinesiology instructor and a kinesiology and reiki practitioner. I was lucky enough to be a part of Impact Academy in 2018 and during 2019 I was a merit awardee in the Gold Coast Women in Business Awards, Creating Change along with being Westfield Helensvale’s Local Hero. It is true to say that I am blessed in every area of my life and I am surrounded by an incredible community of support.

For many years I have been passionate about supporting our community and our youth. I began my journey as a primary school teacher after completing a double degree in English and Psychology and a Diploma of Education at University of Wollongong. Throughout my twelve years of teaching, I saw many young students struggling with their learning and as a result opened a tutoring agency specialising in individualised programs of support. I also spent many years teaching personal development through drama and physical education programs to youth of all ages.

Looking for ways to provide further support, I retrained in the modality of kinesiology and have now been working within the health and wellness industry for the past fifteen years, running a successful practice and spending much of my time supporting those in need. As a qualified instructor of Neuro Linguistic Kinesiology, I have also successfully trained many practitioners in this field. I love taking any opportunity that I can to surround myself in community and to help those around me to thrive.

After supporting many people, across a broad spectrum of ages and in the field of mental health, particularly mood and anxiety disorders and disordered eating,I am passionate about improving the understanding mental health within the community, reducing the stigma and and improving skills in supporting those with mental health problems.

I will be honoured to present MHFA courses to both the general community and within workplace and corporate settings and I am happy to travel within Australia, including to rural, regional and remote areas.
