I’m Sam Morrisey.

A mulit-passionate, homeschooling mama of 3. I'm also a success coach, a businesswoman, a student of complementary medicine, an essential oils educator and an all ‘round fun lovin’ girl.

I’m passionate about integrative health and lifestyle wellness because I believe that the lifestyle we lead, including how we nourish our bodies, manage our stress levels, develop and nurture our minds and the type of environment we expose ourselves too, is the key to our very best, most joyful, most impactful life.

But sometimes wine and chocolate and cheese can be keys to joy too. 😁

I’ve learned the stress of needing to be perfect - eat the perfect food 100% of the time, be the perfect wife, mother, business woman etc, is the most toxic and damaging thing that we can do to our bodies and our minds. 

So if your after one of those blogs that looks like it popped right out of a 'Mother and Baby' magazine your in the wrong place. I like to keep things real and more than likely you'll find me sitting at my paint covered kitchen table with a child around my neck or on my boob.😜

The Journey: Motherhood, Skate Parks,  Success Coaching and Many Missteps

Before the connected, fun, unschooling mamma, there was an uptight, highly strung, businesswoman completely conflicted about the kind of person and parent she wanted to be,

who gauged her worthiness, by her busy-ness. 

A dedicated people pleaser, overachiever and perfectionist who had no idea who she truly was, doing everything for the prestige, the praise or the pat on the back.

I was the picture of success on the outside, but on the inside, I was anxious and DESPERATE for approval.

The anxiety and pressure that traveled with me from childhood into my late twenties was a toxic cocktail. I had clinical depression and anxiety, I was exhausted, had constant headaches and though I didn't know this at the time, my fertility was waining.

While my crazy busy corporate and business days saw me Coaching leaders in the finance industry, building and running skate parks and coaching other women in business, I could never have been prepared for the life-changing impact of motherhood….…It’s funny how our children shine a light on all of our stuff……..well at least that's how my integrative health journey was rekindled. 

With multiple miscarriages most likely due to poor egg quality (my AMH levels were less than 1, meaning I was at the end of my egg supply and well, your body throws out all the good eggs first doesn’t it, and then your left with the dodgy's at the end apparently) and an IVF prognosis, I decided to take matters in to my own hands.  I knew I wanted to approach this naturally in a way that was kind to my body. 

I researched.  

I chose lowering the toxicity of my environment (my home and body products mostly), acupuncture, chiropractic, and food as medicine to conceive our 2nd, after our first apparently miracle baby. Though we went through heartbreak, we went on to have 3 beautiful and healthy children naturally.

Our lesson in stress management and lifestyle management came later, when the incredibly stressful and busy lifestyle and businesses we created took their toll on our physical and mental health as well as our family's wellbeing. It was pretty brutal and our marriage and our little family suffered with 2 strung out, exhausted and barely functioning parents to lead the way.

A culmination of events meant we lost almost everything and it was the biggest blessing we could have received. We had to start over.......and we choose to build something life-affirming, instead of life destroying.

So we started creating........ and we still are!

We committed to creating a lifestyle that supported our entire wellbeing, not just our physical health.  That meant we could give our children our very best and allow them to develop into their very best, that meant we could pursue our passions and make an impact, with them right beside us that meant we could live life together, joyfully, connected and well for as long as possible.

All of the non-negotiables that had kept us stuck in our old, sick lifestyle became negotiable. We looked around and we saw choice, where previously we felt trapped in our circumstances.  The possibilities became endless- and still are!

Is it perfect?  HELL NO!  But I've created this little space to share my journey and connect with other multi-passionate mammas, who are ready to create whole life wellness, pursue their passions and foster family values of love, worthiness, connection,  & compassion-  without the pressure to be 100% perfect.

  • I'm a certified transformational coach (kinda like a life coach)
  • I'm currently studying my bachelors in Complementary Medicine. 🍃

  • Getting out into the forest or to the beach is really important for my sanity.
  • I don't like labels.  I understand their necessity but I don't like having one. To much pressure to uphold it, I guess that's remanence of my old conditioning. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • I can't spell, I use autocorrect, but sometimes dodgy grammar or incorrectly spelled theres and they'res get through.  When I was in business, I would pay someone to check it, but for now, I'm ok with it, may you be too. ;-)
  • I swear sometimes.  Not a lot, but sometimes.  And not the c-word or anything, but you can expect shit, crap and the occasional F-Bomb when I'm getting really passionate.  If you are going to get all high and mighty about it, we can't be friends.
  • I'm not perfect and I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.  I'll be open and honest about that too.
  • I believe life is like a 'choose your own path' book (does anyone remember those?  Do they still have them?  they were fab!).  While this is my story and what works for me, I wouldn't expect that everything I do will work for you. Take some, leave some- whatever you like.  xx

In our family we:

  • Don't do school.
  • Love fun and adventure!
  • Believe in embracing and role modeling compassion, gratitude, SUPPORT (both giving and receiving) and the pursuit of happiness for EVERY INDIVIDUAL in our family.
  • Believe in embracing what works for us, NOT societal norms or even alternative paths.  We don't do 'boxes'.  We do what works for us.
  • Create the mindset shifts necessary to live happily, pursuing our passions and fostering connection, respect, and FUN in our family.
  • Believe in natural learning through living and fostering and facilitating learning through our own interests, this applies to our children too.
  • Know that our children deserve our respect and guidance, not shame and humiliation.  
  • Believe in Self-compassion and embracing our own imperfections, letting ourselves be seen and honoring our vulnerability.
  • And that all this can sometimes go out the door and that is completely OK, we get on with it, we get over it, nobody is perfect.
