Amena Lee Schlaikjer is a global citizen, uprooted every 2 years since birth as a diplomat brat under the guise of an American passport from her Amero-Danish-Dutch father, but strongly grounded in the humbled village roots of her aboriginal Taiwanese mother. “Lifestyle” and “Life Choices” of people have always been her passion and manifested in an early career in fashion and cosmetics, later evolving into the world of marketing and innovation. Tired of manipulative messaging and after battling a long bout of insomnia, followed by a year of yoga and wellness research, Amena decided to concentrate on products and services with authentic intentions and therefore launched ‘The Wellness Works’. TWW is a creative network of practitioners passionate about bringing mindful stories, responsible brands and healthy events to market through company workshops and ideas. She also sits as acting Shanghai Manager for Asia-Pacific LOHAS, a wider community of LOHASians (or people who aspire towards Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability).

Much of this is due to lifestyle factors andthe prevalence of non-communicable diseases (the four main types of “NCDs” being cardiovascular disease, cancer,chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes) being largely preventable by lifestyle choices that tackle shared risk factors,namely: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol.
