Hello, my name is Lise-marie, Lise-marie Fourie, if you like full names. This is where I share my life with you, my journey which lead me to create this platform.  I hope that I will be able to inspire you to LIVE, LOVE and LEAD a better, healthy life.

Here is my story:

After so many years of struggling and suffering with poor health, Lise-marie decided to take charge of her life and health. She  knew there are so many people just like her and she first started out and founded  Thepurebody, which focus on health, skin and nutrition.

Lise-marie developed a hearing impairment at the age of 15 and founded Happy Ears in 2010, a project to raise funds and create awareness for people living with hearing loss.   A creative passion of her is photography, her family calls her the ‘serial snapper’. Lise-marie is based in Cape Town, it was always a dream of this little farm girl, to live in this beautiful, diverse city.

“I’m so grateful for all God has given me, I hope to inspire people around the world, to realise theirs and to live, love and lead a life to their fullest.”

“But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the loving kindness of God forever and ever” – Psalm 52:8

My training and experience:

Lise-marie pursued her passion for health and fitness and found a job at the best Health Club in town.  During the same year, whilst working at the health club, she enrolled at the  Reebok International Institute for a diploma in Personal Training, Aerobics and Aqua aerobics.  Because of her passion for business she enrolled at the University of the Free State the following year and completed a bachelors degree in commerce: B.com (Sports Management) and graduated.  She went on to complete an Honours degree in commerce:  B.com (Hons).  During this time she worked at various health clubs, teaching aerobics to support herself financially. In 2014, she obtained a Digital Marketing diploma from the University of Stellenbosch Business School

In 2016 she completed her photography diploma at The Photography Institute, and 2019 she completed the Advance Marketing Programme from Neil Patel.

Before she founded Happy Ears, she studied with a professional jewellery designer to learn how to create earrings with sterling silver and freshwater pearls. It was during the same year she started her research in the natural and organic skincare market.  Through her research she found a  natural and organic skincare brand, which literally changed her focus and approach to beauty products and lead her to create Skin Girl with the 4-Easy-Steps Regime.  In 2017 she qualified as a natural and organic skincare formulator through a leading online organic skincare education platform, Formula Botanica.

She has worked for a number of years in the pharmaceutical industry as medical sales representative and sales manager with different portfolios, namely Dermatology, Diabetes, Oncology, Vitamin & Mineral supplements.
