Mermaid at heart

Hi, I am Kerry. Welcome to my website and blog. I am a Cape Town based entrepreneur, life and business coach and writer who loves travel and outdoor adventure.

Through story-telling on my blog I hope to inspire everyday adventures and connect with those who would like to work with me.
