What matters
to us

We started Ardea because we wanted to pursue work aligned with our values. We feel passionate about helping others to sustain a life they feel excited about, using our own skills to support small businesses to fulfill their potential. Work with us >

Balancing work and wellbeing

We know it’s not easy working for yourself, we’re doing it too! We value open communication and efficient organisation to work at a pace that suits your professional and personal goals. We also love to share our own tips and tools for a balanced way to work, live & play.

Creating a thriving world

We choose to work with projects striving for positive change. We’re passionate about holistic health, sustainability, mind & body wellbeing and creative expression. Are you a social enterprise or charity? Get in touch to hear about our reduced rates.

Challenging existing power structures

We understand the privileges we have as two white women and are committed to doing what we can to always adapt and learn within our business to make sure our work is accessible, inclusive, anti-racist and informed by Intersectional Feminism.

Collaboration over competition

We want to encourage a culture of lifting each other up, delighting in each other’s unique skills and promoting collaborative projects. Cultivating community lights us up and is central to what we do and our way of thinking.

Who we are

Jasmine Sara

Jasmine is our creative writer. She’s also a yoga teacher, world traveller and wellbeing workshop facilitator. Using her degree in English Literature, Media Studies and Creative Writing, she has worked with meaningful projects that exist to create change in the world.
Writing has been her “thing” since she wrote a poem about pigs in wigs aged 6 (but don’t worry, her style has definitely advanced since then!) She loves to carefully craft written art from the stories of others, as well as her own. Her wide range of experience with writing and passion for communication are integral to the work we do at ARDEA.
Jasmine is passionate about social impact, environmental impact and human rights advocacy. In her free time you’ll find her singing to wildlife, walking in the forest or dancing.

Olivia Dias

Olivia is our visual designer and marketing strategist, experienced in working with a variety of small businesses in the world of fashion, tech and wellbeing. She loves working closely with clients to visually communicate their business or project to the right audience.
Starting out her career in Fashion with her design degree, Olivia is determined to influence change in the industry. Her background in marketing combined with her keen eye for design, as well as her social and environmental values, lay strong foundations for the work we do at ARDEA.
On days off you can find her weaving or drawing, bopping along to an electronic music mix or jumping into the ocean. Olivia lives to connect and share creativity with the world.
