I graduated with a Bsc (Hons) in Environmental Science from Hertfordshire University and proceeded to work in politics and local government administration.
I then trained as an aromatherapist in London and so was able to work part time within the environmental field and part time complementary therapist. It was a very healthy time for me as I was able to pursue both my passions in life.
On my travels, I met a woman who ended up becoming a trusted friend and was a key player in getting my job as a complementary therapist with a cancer charity. Working with people with cancer was a very humbling experience and one which I will never forget. Ironically at this time, my family entered an extremely difficult phase. We lost our mother to cancer and then our father struggled for five years after with Parkinson’s till he passed away.
So what changed it all for me? My children. In 2007 I had my first child, Dylan and in 2010 I had my baby girl Alice. I was a full time mum for a few years but then it was at the point of separation from their dad in 2011 that hemp clothing came into my life.
I discovered the Nomads website through a search for massage clothing and faced issues trying to purchase the clothing online, so I thought why not import it myself? I loved the whole catalogue and the idea of selling organic and fair trade clothing and so BohoHemp was born. I do feel like I have had another child, I am completely obsessed and I never stop talking about it, you could say I have fallen head over heels in love with hemp!
The business has been growing organically over the past three years and we are learning all the time! My vision is to bring affordable ethical fashion to the people and promote hemp clothing into the mainstream fashion industry. Eventually, there will not be a need to be labelled ethical as all clothing will be.
