My Connection Statement
A speaker and leadership and performance coach, I draw on the science of positive psychology to help individuals and organisations uncover and connect to their purpose and build a life they’re proud of.
About Me - My Biography
A former theatre maker turned psychology super geek, I have dedicated my career to creating and sharing stories that matter. At 23, I founded MPOWER Youth, an independent theatre company that placed at-risk youth with professional artists, and came to uncover my purpose in the process: to help people build lives that felt meaningful. A serial collector of purpose-driven projects and people ever since, I have spent the last 15 years consulting to individuals and organisations seeking to bring more meaning into their personal and professional lives.
Whilst raising my two energetic children (now 13 and 10) alongside my husband, I completed my Masters in Clinical Psychology, swapped out the big smoke for a sea change in the coastal town of Port Macquarie, and built two successful purpose for profit businesses that share evidence-based strategies to help people thrive.
Through consulting and coaching, I help heart-centred leaders drive courageous and compassionate conversations in their teams, prioritise their wellbeing and increase their positive impact.
