The Wellness Poet

Krissy Regan is The Wellness Poet, an Author, Poet, Speaker and Wellness Warrior! She creates stories and poems that in-spire and connect people to themselves and the world around them. Krissy studied Exercise Science and Sports Management and has worked on the international stage for the past 20 years after she stepped onto the world's biggest stage as a Performer in the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympics.

After decades of traveling and working around the world Krissy moved home to Australia and decided it was time to STOP, REVIEW AND RESET and she created her own formula for an Unbreakable Mind, Body and Spirit and is now fitter, healthier and happier than she was as a 20yr old athlete. She wrote Broken to Unbreakable - 12 Steps to and Unbreakable Mind, Body and Spirit to help others do the same.

Krissy's second book; The Koala who Lost his Heart, is a story about self-love, self-acceptance, finding friendship and animal conservation. The book is aimed at 5-12-years.

Krissy believes that Health and Wellness can spread like a virus and is dedicated to spreading a message of health and wellness around the world. Krissy is the Founder of Mindful Mums Queensland and on the Management Committee of Queensland Youth Services. "My passion is to encourage, inspire and sup-port as many people as I can to nurture their Mind, Body and Spirit. When these three pillars are in alignment you will lead a healthy, happy and successful life."
