When Donald Trump touted the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a prevention or even cure for Covid-19 earlier this year, many shook their head in disbelieve.
The Founder of Gisa Ellis Consulting
Good to see you and I am delighted that you are visiting! Here is a little bit about me:
Originally from Germany, I lived and worked in the UK and South Africa for a long time before I moved to New Zealand in 2019. It is a bit hard to put me in a single professional box, but my original background is in business management, finance and IT (more about me here).
I am entrepreneurial, innovative, love a challenge, and enjoy finding and implementing innovative solutions. Generally considered as easy going, positive and a good mentor and coach, I can also be impatient and stubborn when I encounter someone who is big headed or unfair. My integrity and my values are of utmost importance to me and I enjoy seeing people succeed. As I find it is too miserable being miserable, I love to see the funny side in things and have a laugh.
So how did I get to do what I do now?
Shortly after I had moved from South Africa to New Zealand in 2019, I was confronted with a serious cancer diagnosis. Hence, I found myself on a journey I never anticipated, especially as I have always been nutrition and fitness conscious. I took on the challenge and started to research, question, evaluate and create a path through the initial dark. While going through the process including various surgeries and chemotherapy, I realized that I was collecting valuable experience, knowledge and strength, I can now share with people diagnosed with similar conditions or faced with other challenging life circumstances.
In 2020 I went from idea to plan to implementation.
Now, with my consulting services, online courses and collaborations, my aim is to support people on their unique journey to wellbeing.
I look forward to connecting with you!
