About Me

About Me

My name is Audrey Finch-Robertson, and it's time for me to bridge the gap between my career journey and the vibrant world of Tartan Vitalis. Let me take you on a journey that intertwines experience, passion, and a dash of diversity.  Picture of Audrey Finch-Robertson

Professional Pathway With a career spanning senior roles within the Scottish Government and its agencies and stints in the private and charity sectors, I've had the privilege of navigating the complex landscapes of leadership and management. Armed with an accounting qualification, I brought extensive practical experience to the table, nurturing solutions and fostering forward-thinking approaches in Accountancy, ICT, Estates and Security. My journey saw me operate in boardrooms and senior management teams.

I'm proud of my track record in building capacity and cultivating high-performing, multidisciplinary teams, pushing the boundaries of success. Within the teams, I was honoured to coach and mentor talented people, supporting them through growth and development.

My forte? Aside from coaching and mentoring, it has to be corporate governance and risk management, where I've contributed to shaping processes at senior levels, steering organisations through transformative change, and empowering individuals to be catalysts of creativity.

My Other Life But there's more to me than spreadsheets and board meetings. I have always been passionate and committed to Holistic Health and Well-being. This love affair started around 1992, and  I created BetterLife4u. It was my first step into creating and managing a website and trying to get the message out to a broader audience. You could say it was a baby Tartan Vitalis. Sadly, with working a full-time job and other priorities,  I couldn't commit the time needed to take BetterLife4u further, so I had to let it go. But the commitment and passion has never been far away.

I am a qualified Life Coach, Reiki Level 2 practitioner, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner. I am qualified in holistic therapies such as Hypnotherapy, Time Line Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT).

I was a dedicated gym bunny, running, lifting weights and attending yoga classes. And I competed in too many to count, 10k and 5k events. Sadly, age has caught up with me, but although my training is not as frequent or intense, I still look after my own Holistic Health and Well-being.

My love for the written word also led me to self-publish a fiction book and contribute as an Ezine Expert Author on a range of Holistic Health and Wellbeing topics,  all under the pen name Audrey Finch.

The Story of Tartan Vitalis So, why Tartan Vitalis, and why now? Tartan Vitalis is an amalgamation of my experiences and passions and a testament to my journey towards inclusivity and personal development. It's a platform where professionalism meets personal growth, where strategy blends with holistic well-being. It's about celebrating diversity and embracing the colourful tartan of life.

Kinross, Scotland is where I call home, along with my wife, Monica, who is African American, and our two rescue dogs, Jorge and Rosie. As a mixed-race, same-sex couple, diversity is not just a passion but an integral part of our lives. Together, we strive to create a world that respects differences and celebrates individuality.

I've received many inquiries about what Tartan Vitalis is all about – are we a coaching platform, a source of mentoring, a hub for videos and eBooks, or a store offering a wide array of products? The unique aspect of Tartan Vitalis is that we encompass all of these dimensions. My goal is to adapt and grow to your needs and aspirations.

Tartan Vitalis is dedicated to the holistic you, addressing your inner and outer self. Our digital offerings primarily cater to nurturing the inner you – focusing on Physical Health and Well-being, Mind and Spirit Fusion, and Personal and Professional Growth and Development. Simultaneously, our Print on Demand and other physical goods are designed to support the outer you. These products are carefully curated to enhance various aspects of your life, including Home and Environment, Relationships and Communications, and Hobbies and Creative Expression. And, hopefully, to make you smile.

Of course, life is rarely as simple as separating it into inner and outer dimensions, but this framework helps convey our commitment to your overall well-being. We're here to provide you with a comprehensive range of resources and products that empower you to lead a fulfilling life. 

So, thank you for joining me on this adventure. As I navigate this exciting blend of my professional and personal worlds, I'm driven by a commitment to empower individuals to unlock their full potential and pursue their unique dreams. It's not just about breaking down barriers; it's about creating pathways to possibilities. Together, let's embark on a journey of growth, self-discovery, and the realisation of aspirations.

I invite you to join Team Tartan Vitalis and become part of a community where empowerment knows no bounds and where your dreams find a safe, nurturing space to thrive.

I hope you enjoy the site and I look forward to getting to know you.

All the best!
