After closing their factory doors Priscilla returned to university for her post-graduate education to deep dive into the science of human nutrition.
After struggling to lose weight post-pregnancies and having severe diastasis recti due to requiring C-section births for both of her babies, her brain and body felt disconnected for years after. Her diet in the past has been vegan, raw vegan, pescatarian, and is currently omnivore eating for balanced blood sugar.
“I thought I knew how to take care of myself, but I was deficient, depleted and, always sick.”
On December 30th, 2019 just before New Year’s Eve in Sydney Australia, Priscilla was involved in an accident where she sustained several facial fractures.
“My surgeon and the medical staff during my check-ins were highly curious as to how I was able to expedite my healing with such a quick decrease in inflammation and an increase in tissue and skin regeneration. My accident recovery given the severity (I opted out of surgery) proved as anecdotal evidence that my THRIVE lifestyle is indeed efficacious – even on levels I was unaware of.”

“I want women to feel empowered about their choices, their health, and to THRIVE. I give my clients the tools to successfully navigate nutrition and lifestyle which today can be so confusing. I love watching my clients’ hit their goals while bringing their brains and body back into alignment. You will learn what works best for you (not someone else) and to trust your choices. Choosing progress over perfection is the first step to THRIVE.”
Priscilla is from Sydney Australia and arrived to Hong Kong in 2005. She met her (Canadian) husband here and later had their children here and the rest (as they say) is history.
When she’s not with her kids; or seeing clients, Priscilla loves recipe developing in her kitchen. She’s also researching, and reviewing the latest studies in PubMed. Filling her brain with exciting new findings in the field of nutrition and fitness is her jam!
