INSPIRING MY EVERYDAY | Meet Casey-Lee

Welcome to the next instalment of interviews with some of the people in my life who inspire my everyday. See the first interview here.

I am grateful to have these amazing individuals in my life who are always encouraging and inspiring me to be the best version of me.

Meet Casey-Lee. My acupuncturist, naturopath, nutritionist, life coach, friend, inspiration and conscience. 




Casey-Lee is awesome. She is beautiful inside and out.  With Casey-Lee’s guidance, my health recovery is miraculous and a little surreal to be honest.

Casey-Lee inspires me with her kind heart, her gentleness in life, and her commitment to honouring herself and her wellbeing. 

So let’s find out a little bit more about this amazing woman.

1. Tell us a little about yourself in a few sentences.
I am an everyday woman living a simple life. I am also a natural health practitioner (Naturopath and Nutritionist) with a passion to inspire others to live their best self. My life is as busy as it has ever been with the launch of my new business and a baby on the way and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love life and love all things healthy.
2.     What is your favourite childhood memory that makes you smile?
Many of my favourite childhood memories seem to be in the kitchen! One of my favourites is helping my Gran bake fun treats, especially her ‘rock cakes.’ Looking back they really did taste like rocks but it didn’t matter because their was so much love in making them!


3.     What did you do before you trained to be a health practitioner, and what attracted you to this career?
I have always had an interest in health and was brought up with it being part of our family’s life but before I trained as a health practitioner I explored nursing, event management and fitness.
4.     You have recently launched Live Love Nourish. Can you tell us a little about it, and the driving force in creating Live Love Nourish?
Live Love Nourish is a health and wellness website that specialises in nutritionally designed recipes and programs. As our philosophy shares, LLN inspires you to “live the real you, love truly and deeply and nourish from the inside out.” 
The concept behind the business is that to live a truly healthy and fulfilling life is to live your real, whole and genuine self; to love yourself truly and love others deeply and to nourish all of you from the inside out.
LLN particularly specialises in recipes that are free from processed ingredients with a focus on recipes that are gluten free, dairy free and sugar free.
I created Live Love Nourish as I wanted to share my passion for truly looking after your body with a wider community. Being online gives me a platform to essentially ‘share the love’ and offer inspiration to others that I hope supports them in living life to its fullest potential; filled with joy, harmony and health.

5.     Who is someone who inspires you and why?
Of course who else but mum! She is balanced, keeps me grounded and her love is endless. She lives true to herself, loves unconditionally and is the most genuine person I know. These qualities in mum inspire me to stay true to myself always.
6.     I know that you eat very well. Do you ever go crazy and have something that you know you shouldnt eat, and what food would that be?
I love this question! To be honest, I tend to not eat foods that don’t leave me feeling good in my body as I’ve learnt its not worth it to feel my vitality being compromised. That said, I do love to go crazy with all things avocado! And I sure have gone nuts on nuts ;)


7.     What has been the most challenging thing in your life and what positive lessons have come from it?
One of the most challenging things in my life would definitely have to be the creation the Live Love Nourish website. When I first started the site I had a vision of what I wanted to do but had no idea how or what I needed to make it happen.  Every step was a challenge and a constant learning along the way. Whilst it was challenging it has also been incredibly empowering and rewarding. 

Some of the greatest lessons that have come from it have been to trust, patience, to stay true to yourself and to never letting anything stop you from achieving your goals.
8.     On my own healing journey, the turning point was when I realised the key was in self love and self honour. What was the catalyst that lead you to bring more self love into your life?
It is music to my ears to hear you speak the words self-love and self-honour Sue!
It didn’t take me long to realise that you can only do so much at the expense of the body before self-love has to be the basis of all that you do. When self-love and self-honour become your foundations, trust me, you can do so much more with much more energy!

9.     You do your own public relations, photography, food styling, recipe development and testing, blogging, and you are a respected health practitioner. Is there something else you would love to learn how to do?
Gee, thanks Sue, that’s very kind of you! I am constantly learning and love to learn so I will always be ready to learn whatever is needed as the chapters unfold.
I would love to learn how to translate ideas into reality instantly ;)
10.  You and your partner are expecting your first baby any day now. I am over the moon for you both! What are you most excited about, and what are you most nervous about being a mum? 
Thank you Sue! We are very excited to be expecting our first baby very soon. I am most excited to share all of life’s blessings with our little one and to watch her grow into her own unique self. I must say it is the ‘unknown’ of not knowing what to expect that can make me a little nervous but at the same time that is also exciting.


11.  Although you are taking a break from consultations whilst you focus on enjoying motherhood, what we can expect from Live Love Nourish in the future?
There is still so much more to come from Live Love Nourish and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!  On the cards next is our first e-book filled with delicious and healthy recipes.
Thanks so much Casey-Lee for sharing a little bit about yourself and LLN. Wishing you much love and best wishes for the safe arrival of your little one and I can't wait to meet her!
