A British entrepreneur with a track record of delivering exceptional accelerated growth. Her investment strategy in wellbeing products primarily is pinned to improving life’s journey.
I founded my first business, Pacific Direct, in 1991 at the age of just 23. Having arrived in the UK from Hong Kong with little or no hotel experience, and quickly grew Pacific Direct into a specialist global supplier and manufacturer of luxury high end brands licensed for five-star hotels
I invest in British brands including Scentered.com, the 100% natural, portable, Wellbeing Ritual aromatherapy brand; Gate8 luggage, lightweight, time-saving, functional, business luggage and accessories that reduce stress; KitBrix, a functional, robust, modular, sports kit bag and organiser system for active people, Yogi Bare, the best in class yoga and fitness mats and accessories and Global Amenities Direct a remarkable twist on my previous toiletries supply brand licensing company with a considerable focus on eco-conscious and sustainable waste reduction.
Only offering dispensed and refillable brand fit natural toiletries presented in planet friendly packaging that is still beautifully aligned to today’s guest and member expectations where the wellbeing mindful pillar of the wellness regime has in the past too often simply been in name alone. Scentered offers a bespoke full service and multiple touch point range where members benefit from a better all round wash experience
My passion for fragrance and functionality in natural aromatherapy products led me to develop, design and produce Scentered, an aromatherapy based Wellbeing Ritual which provides a scent-based solution for mindful transitions through our daily journeys. The Scentered mantra and ritual — Stop. Inhale. Reset – teaches the customer how to connect scents with desired mindsets, empowering them to direct their thoughts and emotions to live happier lives.
