Tell us about your family?
I have been married to Mark for three years and we have been together for five. Together we have two boys, Bodhi who is 2.5 and our next baby boy due at the end of this year. Mark also has a son Isaac who is 8.
What has changes most since having children?
In my opinion my days are just so much richer – being Bodhi’s mummy is my favourite job in the world! Life feels so much more adventurous and enjoyable.
What was the best and worst advice you received before your baby was born?
When working, do you take your kid to set?
Yes always! Bodhi is with me every day at work! That’s the luxury of doing what we do – there is a real acceptance and celebration in bringing our children to work with us. As actors on a film set there is so much waiting around and downtime that you get to spend such quality time with them each day even whilst working.
What is the most challenging part of juggling a career and motherhood?
For us it’s balancing Marks career with mine, we don’t have a nanny so Mark travels with us. When I was working so much of Bodhi’s first 2 years, Mark just travelled on the road with us so we wouldn’t need a nanny. Now I’ve been traveling with him for his work and it’s been really well balanced. Carving out time for just him and I has probably been our greatest challenge.

What makes you tick?
Living our highest selves, embracing mindfulness and conscious living. Working on myself spirituality and getting closer to who I am. When I am coming from that state of mind I am parenting the way I dream to and having interactions with my friends and co-workers the way I desire.
What does family mealtime look like? Any favourite dishes?
Because we were traveling it was a lot of eating out for the past two years as we have hardly been home, but we have eaten at some really special places! Now that we are more settled here, I love to cook Eggplant Parmigiana with baked cinnamon sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli with garlic and lemon.
What are your go-to toddler snacks?
Rice cakes and almond butter, baby tomatoes, organic gluten free crackers, sea salt popcorn
What do you do for “me-time”?
What are your hopes and dreams for your children?
Just that they grow up to be happy, self realised men who have a good concept of the world and are inspired to live in a conscious manner. I hope they really learn to cultivate self love, acceptance and celebration and that with that they go out in to the world projecting that kind of wholeness to those around them.
Hands down funniest mama moment you’ve encountered?
I don’t think I have one in particular, I find that every day Bodhi does such funny things to crack me up. I always used to find epic poo explosions hilarious and right now he does this funny bum dance that always makes me laugh!
