Hi I'm Josephina

My name is Josephina McDonald, in the process of building a wellness retreat from scratch. I love people and their stories, yet adore my 13 chooks and 3 Border collies equally.

I am a proud mum, wife and entrepreneur. I live the ups and downs of life, with passion and compassion and coffee!

My home is where my heart is, my heart is in the Grampians.
