About

Hello there, I’m Lesh.

I’m a Melbourne-based writer and digital content specialist. This is my cyber home, a safe space where I cultivate my craft and share personal stories that mean something to me.

While I’ve worn a few different career hats, one thing has remained consistent throughout: harnessing words to process life.

Right now, I’m working as a Digital Content Specialist for a fantastic company that provides wellness programs and services to workplaces.

Before that, I worked as an Assistant Editor and a Wellness Writer for an online magazine, and have over 8 years’ experience working as a freelance Health and Medical Writer. Way before that, I practiced as a pharmacist and instructed aerobics in the years before Les Mills was a thing.

I’ve also contributed to well-known sites such as MindBodyGreen, Tiny Buddha, and Kris Carr. And once upon a time, I founded and ran a blog called The Mindful Foodie, where I posted mostly vegetarian wholefood recipes and published a recipe and healthy-eating ebook. I have kept these recipes on this site, for some of them have fans.

If you’re curious about my credentials, you can check out my LinkedIn profile.

On more of the personal side, I’m a Piscean, a mama two two gorgeous fur babies and married to a spunky Sri Lankan. I was born in Fiji, but have called Melbourne home for more than 30 years. Zumba, reading a book while basking in the sun, dark chocolate (70%+), enjoying a coffee (almond milk magic!) and a meal at my favourite cafe, and being in the company of whole-hearted people floats this introverts boat.

Thank you for visiting my little online abode. It is a place where I sculpt and explore myself through words. I hope whatever you discover here adds more deliciousness to your life.
