About Me

As a Building Biologist, my job is to help you create a healthier home – a home that nurtures, that restores and inspires, that welcomes, that flows – a home that enhances your health and wellbeing.

Home Free Building Biology grew from a merging of my work and home life experiences.

Professionally, I’ve worn all sorts of hats as an Occupational Therapist, a Naturopath and in Health Promotion – all with one common thread – helping people to improve their health and wellbeing. Discovering and studying Building Biology was an ‘Aha’ moment for me – of course our homes, where we spend so much of our time, need to enhance our health if the people who live in them are to be healthy too.

I’ve led a nomadic life – 29 homes in 4 countries so far, from student share houses to family life, with lots of variations in between. Renovating and decorating many times has given me an insight into what transforms a house into a home, and what makes a home feel healthier – both for our body and our mind.

My Building Biology toolkit is filled with the theories and practices of my professional life, blended with my personal experiences, with the simple goal of helping you to create a healthier home.

I get such a buzz from working with people to help solve problems and make their home a healthier place to live in – why not get in touch to see how we can work together and create change in your home?


About Building Biology

Building Biology is a new and evolving profession in Australia, so if you’ve not heard of it, it’s no surprise. It’s a science that came from Germany in the 1960’s – it’s now well-regarded and commonly practiced in North America, Canada and parts of Europe. 

Building Biology is all about the relationship between people and buildings. It explores the way buildings are designed, the materials they’re made from, the quality of the building’s indoor air and water. It examines people’s exposure to well-researched hazards like electromagnetic fields, mould and biotoxins, allergens and the environmental chemicals in everything we put on, in and around us. 

Building Biologists are trained to identify the sources of potential health hazards in buildings, measure them to determine the level of risk, compare the findings to international health-based standards and provide recommendations on how to reduce exposure and create change. 

Working with a Building Biologist will give you the knowledge and information to
create a healthier home through your choices and actions.
