Stephanie is a curious soul with a strong passion for health in all areas of life and an inner calling to connect people to themselves and the world around them.

She has a background in Food Technology working in product development, quality assurance and food safety but her interests expand to all health-related topics, such as nutrition, mental health, emotional intelligence and personal development.

She immigrated from Argentina to New Zealand in 2019, following her dream to live in a place with easy outdoor access. Nature and exercise are two of her pillars of well-being, especially when they are combined. In her free time, you’ll find her hiking, trail running, open water swimming or doing yoga in a park.

After experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety in workplaces, she deepened her practice in mindfulness and mental health and now facilitates workshops and programs for businesses to create psychologically safe working environments, combining personal and professional development, team building, stress management and effective communication.
