Growing healthier & wiser in the city of Bangkok
Joëlle | Founder
My name is Joëlle, and I moved to Bangkok in 2016. Born and raised in Paris, I am very French but at times you get to see the Japanese in me! I am in love & married, and I am a mom. A mama bear, some would say.
I have started My Healthy Bangkok from a personal interest to explore the city, as a freshly arrived expat interested in all things health & wellness. At that time, I couldn’t find one website that would curate the info I was hoping to find, so I thought: why not working on it? And now, I have the great honor of including a dear friend of mine in this adventure! I am a true believer that “together we can achieve greater things” plus, it is a lot more fun to have a friend to explore the city with. Read about Frey here below in her bio!
Besides, I work as an independent consultant through my agency Bow Consulting. And as I developed a passion for scents and especially natural scents from aromatic plants, I have studied French Aromatherapy at the Faculté Libre de Médecines Naturelles et d’Ethnomédecine (FLMNE), which led me to Aromachology and now I am learning about energetic healing, thinking that we all have the power in our hands to elevate ourselves to wellness.
On a completely different note, I love a cool drink on Bangkok’s rooftops, I think that scene never gets old!
Frey | Content Creator
I am Frederiek, but as it seems to be a bit of a difficult name to pronounce in this part of the world, everyone calls me Frey. In 2007 I moved to Singapore with my then boyfriend / now husband, and have been in Southeast Asia ever since. I am born and raised in Holland, married to the love of my life and mom to two little babes that are the world to me!
One of the first friends I made in Singapore was Joëlle, as we worked in the same hotel. Add 10 years, loads of different countries, and kids to the mix and here we are both in Bangkok! When she asked me if I would be interested to join her here on My Healthy Bangkok, I was stoked. Exploring the healthy side of Bangkok while doing so with a friend is a win-win situation in my book!
Besides taking care of my two kids, I work as a content creator and rediscovered my love of photography for which I am currently following a course. Together with Joëlle I am looking forward to bringing you loads of interesting content and visuals for My Healthy Bangkok!
Whether you have an interest in contacting us for collaboration or just to have a chat on healthy living and more, we hope to read from you sometime.
From Bangkok, with love ♡ J&F xx
