Born an identical twin into a large family, Gillie grew up in a wonderful farm- house with a menagerie of animals. She has always had a passion to build people up, to see them flourish and to help them understand what ‘happy’ and ’success’ mean. She has forever had a love for property but even more for people. She is a property entrepreneur and a visionary. When she was 21 she flew out to the Kalahari desert where she lived for a while, working with a safari company. It is during this time that Gillie whilst stretching herself massively out of her comfort zone saw the beginning formation of the person she is today.
This is where she had a dream, which led her to purchasing her first property 2 years later with none of her own money. The ski chalet in France became part of Sophia Holidays and is where many disabled children ventured through her charity Sophia’s Alpine Disabled Adventures. In 1996 Gillie won the Childline award for Great Britain and in 2011 she won a year- long property Mastermind program. Having done 7 years volunteering in prisons, Gillie set up an organisation to help house vulnerable people.
She now coaches, mentors and speaks travelling the country inspiring people with her journey and teaching various property investment strategies. She has pioneered several programs including a mastermind course for youth and young adults and is passionate about helping the younger generation create early in their lives and to understand now what she only learnt in recent years.
She has written 2 books, both of which are in the process of being published and she looks forward in 2020 to helping many more create homes.
Gillie sees each day as a gift.
