Professional life
Toyin started her career in chemical sciences but somehow knew it was not for her. She joined the information technology world hoping to feel fulfilled because of the creativity. That didn’t last long because she began family life and the hours expected to excel in the field would not suit her young children. At this point she decided to pick up herself child hood passion which was supporting vulnerable people in the community. This set something ablaze in her and she decided to join a health care organisation as an untrained worker while she returned to university to get the qualification she needed. Today she is a recognised leader in her field. However her passion grew and she wanted to do more. She then trained to become a health and life coach
