Personal Profile

Having had the experience of working in both fantastic and toxic workplaces I have developed a passion to improve leadership, teamwork and workplace culture. I utilise my experience of Relationship Coaching and business to help companies develop their workplace culture, to ensure that they create an environment that values each employee and their contribution to the organisation. This, in turn, increases the productivity and bottom line of the business!

I have played a significant role in establishing positive team cultures and practices to ensure that the very best was achieved by highly effective teams, often in challenging circumstances. I have worked with companies with multiple offices and remote employees, and understand the challenges of engagement and culture in this structure.

Before moving to full-time coaching, my background includes over 15 years in Educational leadership. I have extensive experience of working with students from diverse backgrounds in the use of Mindfulness, positive self-talk and working on building resilience.

As well as post-grad studies in Education, I have completed a course in Coaching at Monash University, the highly acclaimed 'Critical Conversations' Training, Tony Robbins Business Coaching Graduate, an NLP Practitioner and learned Life Coaching at RMT. I am a passionate life-long learner and am often enrolled in a short course at most times.

  • How I can help Fresh members:

    I love to listen and connect people. I believe in the philosophy of giving and hope to orchestrate opportunities for more business connections for as many people as I can. Obviously, I am a resource in itself for Fresh Members should they feel they need clarity and direction on their own workplace relationship issues. Beyond this, Strengths Assessment can be used to see where Freshies should put their energy and where they should be looking to outsource some facet of their business. 

  • The main business categories in my network are:

    My past and present roles have allowed me to connect with people from all businesses. I have worked with CEOs and Chairmen of sporting clubs, catering and event/venue companies, advertising agencies as well as SMEs. 

  • My target market is:

    I mostly work with SME's that know they have a problem with their staff, but perhaps don't know what it is or how to handle it. I work with new leaders or management who have little experience of managing teams. I'd love to connect with proactive companies that want to ensure they are getting the best from their employees in productivity and talent retention by reviewing and assessing their culture, values and workplace relationships.
