I'm a Brazilian-born, Arabian Gulf-raised, Brit-wed, higher-ed executive, and twin mum with a plan: to ignite joy, purpose, and empowerment. Just as it did for me, I hope Ponderlily will inspire you to pursue a life of fullness, not busyness.
I created the first Ponderlily planner for myself. (It’s not selfish if it helped everyone else in my life, right?). As an overtired, overworked, overwhelmed mum of newborns, I’d internalized the message that making time for myself was less important than my to-do list. But I wanted space to grow, learn, laugh, and to be honest, sleep, too! I knew deep down that life is only as meaningful as our moments and experiences.
Pulling from that realization, and fuelled by my experience as a business analyst specializing in efficiency and my lifelong love for stationery, the first Ponderlily planner was created. From then to now, we have helped thousands of people make space for empowered and meaningful decisions about how they make their mark in the world.
