Vivienne has always been a “taker” in life. Brought up by two loving parents that showed her the world, she learnt early on that there is always another opportunity to grasp - that she can trust her instincts and tackle the consequences of her decisions later. So Vivienne followed her heart from doing an exchange year in the US, getting a dog, to working abroad in Thailand.
Yet, her life didn’t come without some (self-imposed) restrictions and also her career choice to become a school teacher was not love at first sight. She always felt there is more to her and realized that the moments she felt full of life, that she was able to lift those restrictions centered around sports and a healthy lifestyle she started to adopt.
So maybe it came natural, but still was a big step for her to embrace her passion for sports and become a sports coach besides her teaching job. But for Vivienne it is more than “just” a job. She wants to support other women to feel strong and happy in their bodies, create a community where women support each other instead of comparing themselves. Fueled by her own story of lifting her own restrictions and to start living life to the fullest, she wants other women to lift their self-imposed limitations and experience how it can feel like to be “high on life”!
On the WOMEN’S HUB stage, Vivienne will share how her upbringing and life choices made her who she is today and how it gave her this strong sense of purpose following her heart to becoming who she needs to be.
