He mihi nui kia koe
Ko Angela ahau. I am originally from Te Tihi-o-Maru/Timaru, but now reside in Taranaki, and have been an Occupational Therapist since 2001.
I offer both A Celebration Day for Girls and Fathers Celebrating Girls workshops throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand, and will travel to where you would like to hold the workshop.
I am also the co-founder of Chalice Foundation New Zealand, a charitable organisation with the mission of creating positive menstrual culture throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand through quality education for all menstruators and their surrounding communities.
To facilitate A Celebration Day for Girls is a great honour. I am passionate about respectfully celebrating a girl’s journey, preparing her for the next life stage and positively shaping her attitudes and beliefs about herself and her sense of connection to the world around her. I believe this ultimately may lead her to healthier relationships and making positive life choices in her teenage years.
As a Mother of four children I appreciate the demands on our time as Mums. It gives me all the more appreciation for those who are willing to pause and connect with their daughters at the significant life transition time of menarche.
Outside of work I enjoy walking on the beach, reading a book, and being in the company of good friends, fine coffee and much laughter.
I look forward to connecting with you in order to empower the young women of our future together.
Hei kona mai me ngā mihi.

Kia ora tātou! My name is Bec, and I am from Tāmaki Makaurau/ Auckland. I am a school teacher, Reiki Master / Teacher and the founder of Rebel Starseeds, an organisation that works with girls and young women to help them find empowerment, self-love, connection to nature and intelligent rebellion! I love working with girls, and I am particularly passionate about helping them to develop positivity and pride in themselves as they move through the beautiful and important rite of passage that is menarche!
I am honoured to be offering this work to girls and their families. One of the many things I adore about Celebration Day for Girls is that it aligns so perfectly with my work in the world and my beliefs around relationship to self. CDG is a nourishing first step towards period positivity, body positivity, self-love and care, and solidifying important relationships with key female individuals in a girl’s life.
I am also proud to offer the Fathers Celebrating Daughters workshop to support fathers wanting to stay close and relevant to their daughters.
I live with my beloved husband, and our beautiful dog, Maggie Mae, near the sea in Devonport, Auckland. When I’m not working with children, you’ll find me at the beach, in the garden, with my family or somewhere with a book! I love surfing, snowboarding, the outdoors, and travelling, so please feel free to get in touch to see if I can offer a Celebration Day for Girls in your area!

I find young people interesting, authentic and fun, so have chosen to work with them often. Since having a daughter I’ve become more interested in the many pressures placed on girls and women in our society. I’m very passionate about Celebration Day for Girls Workshops because they tackle these pressures in such a simple and beautiful way. The process empowers the girls to embrace puberty and their monthly cycles and uncovers, creates or heightens their good feelings around being female. If girls are prepared for the wonder of their entrance into womanhood (menarche) and have the words required, the ability to form the questions that they need answered and the women around them to ask these questions, I believe that they are given a great start towards an empowered life.
My daughter and I live in Pāpāmoa, Aotearoa/NZ. I love my friends and family, keeping active in nature, the sea, garden and reading. After studying Science, with a PG Diploma in Marine Science, I became a Primary School Teacher (ten years NZ and abroad), led Seminars, was a Home Educator of young children, and currently work as a Tutor alongside Life Learning with my daughter.

I am passionate about bringing more ceremony into our busy contemporary lives. As my own girls approached puberty I was very keen to find something that would dignify this time and celebrate it, so when I found Celebration Day for Girls I was elated!
I have lived and worked in many countries and have always found power and support in women coming together especially in the forum of health and self betterment.
When looking into the history of how women have shared this time of transition I feel a responsibility and excitement to reinstate or normalise this wisdom being passed on, I believe it would so benefit our girls today.
My husband, three children and I live in Opawa, Christchurch. I love this area for its close proximity to the beach, city and Port hills. It has a tight community, farmers market and lots of mature trees. I work within the hospitality industry and care for the elderly. I enjoy walks, yoga, satsang and boxing. One of my favourite things to do is cook at my bench with my music on and no deadlines or recipe.
I look forward to celebrating your girls with you.
