Meet Dr. Jeanne Retief
There are no secrets to happiness. Life always happens. This is my mantra and what I choose to live by, even though I often fail to remember this. But hey, the constant mental reminders we give ourselves is part of the journey, right?
When I turned 35, I experienced great change, contemplation, confusion, frustration, and joy. I had invested so much of my energy in becoming an expert in my field, but I realized that the career I had built with a single-minded focus no longer fulfilled or inspired me. It was a confusing and frightening realization. I wasn’t sure why I felt this way or what I wanted to do instead.
I integrated my human rights background into FIGGI which allowed me to seek serenity and still experience the adrenaline rush of creating something new. FIGGI represents the journey of seeking and finding value in my inner peace and serenity.
Surrounding myself with elements, people, and work that reflects this mantra. To see and believe in my beauty, whatever that may look like. Let go of insecurities all young women tend to carry with them, and not only become comfortable in my own skin but celebrate it.
FIGGI is for every woman like me who has struggled, achieved, and still seeks professional and personal purpose. I offer community, truth, a shoulder to cry on and products to help you elevate your selfcare experience.
This is what FIGGI is to me! It is my Best Life – It is my FIGGI Life.
