How did Wild Precious Lives Come About?
Gin and Trin are two friends that have known each other since university. They first met whilst doing a Bachelor of Physical Education at Rusden University, now Deakin University. Health and physical activity has always been an important part of both their lives. Now at the beautiful age of 45, they are both Mums with kids and often catch up whilst having a walk out in nature, often followed by a cuppa and (sometimes vegan) lunch. During these hikes, they inevitably discuss what’s happening in their lives – the highs, the lows and the in betweens.
One night Trin had a dream that they were doing radio together. She told Gin the next day and a seed was sewn. Several months later the Wild Precious Lives podcast emerged. They are now literally “living the dream”.
Trin’s Wild Journey
After university Trin travelled overseas with Gin and then came back to Australia and taught Special Education. She worked with many children that had various learning difficulties and challenges in the education system. After doing this for several years she became a mum and now has three teenagers of her own. Trin is currently working full time in the Aquatic and Leisure Industry as she wanted a career with less pressure and a job she could thrive in and enjoy without taking work home with her. She desperately tries to find a balance in life whilst acknowledging it is extremely difficult. Trin loves being outdoors and being in nature, she also loves the beach, to write, to cook, to meditate and a good wine.
Gin’s Wild Journey
After university Gin, a handstand guru, travelled overseas with Trin. She then went and lived in Ireland with now hubby Leigh where she started working with refugees. When Gin returned to Australia she started working with the Centre of Multi-Cultural Youth helping refugees integrate into Australia through sport. She then moved to Queensland and started doing websites and digital marketing. She is a mum of two teenagers and loves hard core adventure sports like surfing. Gin also works full time but is passionate about green living, zero waste, low-tox living and getting out in nature.
