CEO/Life Essence Founder:

Kelleigh Wooderson-Hudson

ABOUT ME:  I grew up in South London and was raised in a family that devoted their lives to Jesus. I attended church from a very young age with my grandparents (my grandfather was the senior Pastor).

I have encountered many life struggles, including coming from a broken home and experiencing toxic and emotionally abusive relationships before and after becoming a teen mum.  I have been broken, and depleted but have recovered, healed and survived all that was supposed to kill me.

These experiences led me into the world of support work where I worked with children, families and vulnerable adults for over 20 years. Through a clear leading by God and my many life experiences, I have been led to pursue my passion for people by building healthy and safe environments through Life Essence Housing and Support, and also various other activities that cater for the needs of women who need a ‘safe space’ to heal. 

“I LOVE PEOPLE, I LOVE TO SUPPORT, EMPOWER AND ENCOURAGE THE PEOPLE I MEET TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS. GETTING TO KNOW THE REAL YOU EXCITES ME, AND SUPPORTING YOU TO BE YOUR TRUE SELF IS MAGICAL!”

Life Essence Housing/ Housing Manager:

Blu Vasquez

ABOUT ME:  I joined Life Essence around September 2020 on a volunteer basis and just loved the good that the team were doingSince coming to know God more than 8 years ago, my heart has been to help others and to come alongside them in their trauma. When Kelleigh invited me to be part of the team, I really just felt that’s where God was leading me next in my journey. Since then, I have been so blessed to be able to both support and build relationships with many different women.  These women have trusted me in sharing their trauma stories and allowed me the opportunity to work alongside some wonderful women of God…. with such a heart for Jesus too!

Having suffered a lot of trauma from a very young age, I can empathize with others from similar backgrounds. As a young girl growing up I was subjected to a lot of abuse and domestic violence within my family home. I  then left home at the age of 14yrs and was then  groomed by an older man which caused me extreme amounts of suffering.   All the damage and the pain I experienced led me to then spiral further into  unhealthy relationships, further abuse, distrust of people leading to self-isolation, unhealthy behaviors,  addiction and the list goes on.  Then I met God… and He turned my life around! 

God has shown me a love I’d never experienced before.  He has brought some good people into my life and walked me through a LOT of healing. Bit by bit my life has changed for the better. 
I now want God to use me to help others, and Life Essence is a place where I’m able to do just that!
