~ Bloom Founder ~
Emma is the creator of Bloom Inspiring Wellness. Having created and run pink ribbon fundraising events since 2008, Emma realised that no matter how much money is raised, no matter how many pink cupcakes are sold, chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer will not go away until we start taking responsibility of our own health. Emma not happy supporting the status quo decided to step out and spread the message of prevention through founding the Bloom event. Bloom started as a tiny bud in 2012 and has gradually unfolded petal by petal into a ‘blooming’ wellness day.

Jackie has been Emma’s loyal rock and sidekick since the very beginning of the pink ribbon high tea days back in 2008. Whilst Emma is off creating more ideas, Jackie ensures they are realistic and practical. Managing systems and operations, Jackie ensures all the boxes are ticked. Outside of Bloom Jackie facilitates healing and transformation with seriously stressed out ladies who want to bring happiness & vitality back into their life. This is achieved holistically through counselling and coaching techniques, stress management, meditation and energy healing. We all need a Jackie!

Shannon has been an enthusiastic supporter of Bloom since its inception in 2012. Being a hairdresser Shannon is a natural when it comes to communication, and has build up a wonderful following of Bloom advocates over the years. A health crisis in her early 20’s led Shannon on a chemical free journey when she was told to give up hairdressing or go chemical free. Shannon operates a purposely built private hair salon offering the best chemical free organic colour range in the world.
