From country girl to global citizen. From burnt-out lawyer to impassioned thought leader.
Born in country Australia, I grew up on a farm among eucalyptus, warbling magpies and Barossa Valley vineyards. At 16, I spent a year in the Netherlands as an exchange student and experienced the transformative power of travel – and living overseas – for the first time. I was hooked.
After university in Adelaide, I eventually ended up working as a finance lawyer at one of Europe's top firms. Then I went through a debilitating burnout. Burnout helped me get clear on what matters to me (spoiler: it’s not finance law). It prompted me to start living authentically. I haven't looked back.
Since then, I've run a successful copywriting and translation business, taught yoga and meditation on 5 continents, and coached people on issues like career, burnout and finding meaning.
Today, I'm a published author and global expert on wellbeing and burnout prevention. Creating cultures that prevent burnout, and educating on how we can embed wellbeing at work and put an end to burnout, is my mission.
My corporate background, passion for academic research, knack for storytelling and serious dose of spirituality means I bring a unique palate of skills, talents and experience to corporate and individual clients.
As for my own wellbeing, I love to surf, hike, travel, feed my curiosity, meet new friends, and connect with dear ones. Conversations that help me understand myself, the other person and the world in which we live make my heart shine. I am grateful for great friends, nature, yoga, meditation - and a good glass of Barossa shiraz.
