As a career and executive coach, I specialise in helping women change careers, transition back into work and position themselves for promotion. My clients tell me I help them feel fully prepared and confident to perform to their potential and kick their career goals.

When we work together, I can help you:

  • Build your self-belief and confidence, and help you recognise what you're capable of achieving in your career
  • Rediscover the very best of who you are and what you have to offer. Your strengths, skills and career goals are your “personal brand”. I help you develop and articulate this succinctly and authentically to increase your confidence or position yourself in your future career
  • Prepare for interviews and other critical conversations to stand out and be the obvious choice!
  • Design a killer plan for your 2-5 year career horizon

I’m an experienced executive, having had a longstanding corporate career leading and coaching teams across a range of organisations and industries. I have a Masters degree in Coaching Psychology (the science and practice of human performance and flourishing). This means that all of my frameworks and tools are proven to be effective in scientific studies.I'm accredited in a broad range of evidence-based career coaching and leadership tools. I'm a professional member of various relevant professional bodies, including the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA).

I'm grateful to be able to do this inspiring work helping other women do work they love and fulfil their career dreams. Outside work I'm a mum, wife, friend and devoted yogi. I can’t wait to meet you!
