Lily grew up in the far north of Australia. Her fondest memories are running through the bush and swimming in the rivers and muddy creeks of Cairns. She was a “wild child” and her heart was at one with the “pulse of the land”. Lily’s ability to intuitively connect with life and her passion for writing and listening to stories were fueled by her days roaming the bush with her aboriginal friends. As she grew, Lily's Italian grandparents taught her the love of plants and the joy of herbs and garden-fresh vegetables. It was in her Nona’s garden where she learned to create natural beauty concoctions for hair and body.
Ultimately, Lily’s intuitive gifts took on a life of their own and she was called to full time work as an Energy Healer. Through this work, her life has been enriched by the many amazing people she has met and cultures she has experienced around the world.Wholly Natural Magazine was born from these experiences. Lily's passion for writing, photography, travel, all things natural, and sharing her joy with others has been the driving force in drawing people into her life to collaborate on the magazine. As one friend and colleague put it, "Lily does not find people, people find her”!
