ABOUT

Welcome! My name is Kathy and I'm passionate about kindness, health and well being.

Wishing you well was born from love of creating special care packages with natural and therapeutic products for friends and family facing challenges, illness and also in times of celebration. From personal experience of caring for my mum during her battle with cancer and the loss of my brother years after I knew how special it was when someone reached out. Also knowing the uplifting feeling that can be felt when receiving a gift that was put together with thought and care.

This idea developed into an online store that offers alternative gifting solutions to uplift, inspire and support, as well as growing a community of like-minded people sharing similar experiences through our blog, newsletter and social media. Through Wishing you well we are now also able to support local charities and organisations that are doing amazing work in our community by raising awareness and funding solutions and support for people living with long term and terminal illnesses.

I believe that the power of positive intention, kindness and that the act of gifting can have an inspiring and uplifting impact and we hope that our packages can achieve that for you and your loved ones. Join our community, share your wisdom and become part of the Wishing you well journey.

Get to know me!

1. What are you most passionate about professionally?
Making a positive difference to people’s lives.
2.  Current favourite product/gift box on the site?
That’s a difficult one as I selected the products I would personally love to receive so I love them all! If I had to choose a current favourite it would be the 'Virtual hug' as its so much comfort in one box.
3. Where do you want to travel and why?
Noosa. This is where I married the love of my life and I have so many happy memories there. There is such an amazing energy in Noosa and I always feel rejuvenated when I go there.
I love to travel and have been lucky to have toured around Australia and internationally (pre-COVID) including UK, Europe, California, New Zealand and Fiji. If had to choose one place to go next it would be Canada to see Niagara Falls.
When I was 12 years old my family and I took a year off and travelled around Australia together. I have many fond memories of this trip and would love to do this with my husband and kids one day!
4. What makes you smile?
When my boys laugh, giggle, dance, give cuddles and are generally happy.
5. Describe yourself in one word.
Resilient.
6. Where can we find you on a Sunday afternoon?
Exploring with my husband and boys or catching up on housework! We live in Newcastle so love spending time outdoors at the park, bike riding or at the beach.
7. What would be impossible for you to give up?
Family and friends. I would also find it very difficult to give up my morning coffee!
