Together we will elevate our South Australian women of today and our women of the future.

Since 2017, SA Woman has been here to create impact and shine a light on the contributions of women in South Australia and on the future, our girls.

We believe that all South Australian women and girls deserve the opportunities to forge their own path, in a business or in a career. We believe that connection is key to a sense of belonging, encouragement and empowerment. We believe that “we can’t be, what we can’t see”, and sharing the stories and paths of the women who walk beside us, is key to elevating the status of our women and girls and empowering us all to unleash our potential. .

Connect Her

We create opportunities for connection, belonging and support through our membership community, our varied events and our storytelling.
Community and Connection are key to a State where we truly see women supporting women.

Elevate Her

We elevate the profile of women and girls in businesses and careers, through our social media, blog, magazine, awards and advocacy.
We bust through ceilings, break down barriers and show what is truly possible, from right here in South Australia .

Empower Her

Through connection, community and elevating the achievements and contribution of the collective of women and girls across SA, we encourage her to grow and feel self-empowered to forge her own path. Nothing is impossible when we believe in ourselves.

“We can’t be, what we can’t see. SA Woman is here to show all women and girls what is possible.”

Meet an SA Woman.

Our members are the beating heart of all we do and believe in our vision of an empowered and equal future for our women and girls.

Alexandra Sim – Alexandra Sim Coaching

I’ve been coaching women for 12+ years and now specialise specifically in leadership development and in implementing efficiency systems within their businesses. We usually do a combination of mindset coaching and strategic coaching, with the main focus on supporting you to streamline your role so that you can do more of what you love and less of the things that are leading to overwhelm and burn out! I have 2 businesses myself (coaching + a brick & mortar service-based business) and live in the Adelaide Hills. I’m a mum to 3, and family is the main reason I’ve streamlined my businesses and help others to do the same (I want to say a big, confident YES to attending sports days, having hot dates with my husband, going on adventures and generally enjoying life together!)

I’ve been an SA Woman member for 6 years (inc. being an SA Woman award winner!) and am proudly a 2024 Woman to Watch. I am a qualified Human Design consultant, am a Clockwork Certified Partner (efficiency coach recognition – the only one in Australia!), have a Bachelor in Health Science (Neuroscience because I love the way the brain works!) and am currently studying a Masters in Business (leadership & entrepreneur focus).

Jaynie D Morris – TransformingNOWTogether

I am a passionate woman over 50 who discovered many years ago that, once having reached that age the very real aspect of ‘being invisible’ on many levels was in play! This discovery fuelled my already ‘life passion’ to make a difference wherever I could and drives who and what I do today.

I am an Wholistic Life Coach, Author, Entrepreneur, Media Commentator and Transformational Speaker/Trainer.

Along with being Mother to 2 Adult sons and ecstatically in love Grandmorther of 2, I am protective of my inner circle of girlfriends who contribute to life adventures.

I love all things health, wellbeing and fitness and am qualified in the areas of Classical Yoga Instructor, Naturopath and am a Master NLP & TimeLine Therapist.

Travel is in my blood and I grab any opportunity to do so.

I am both a health survivor (having been given only 2 months to live in 2012) and a domestic violence survivor (having fled in 2021)

Helen Edwards – Helen Edwards Writes

I’m an Adelaide-based children’s author who weaves diverse stories of nature, magic and history. My debut middle-grade novel, The Rebels of Mount Buffalo was published in October 2023, by the award-winning Riveted Press, distributed by Simon and Schuster. It’s a captivating time-slip tale in which a girl lost to grief meets a daring rebel on a misty mountain who guides her to rediscover her courage and find her way home. The Rebels of Mount Buffalo was longlisted in the inaugural DANZ Children’s Book Award for books which feature diversity in all forms.

I have a PhD in Psychology and a long background working in mental health. I write stories that reduce stereotypes and increase understanding of diversity, including characters who live with chronic illness, mental illness, and/or who are neurodivergent. I write stories that reflect our Australian environment, culture, and history. I have been blogging since 2001, after founding an award-winning online counselling service for people with diabetes, which I ran for 16 years. Over 100,000 people follow me across social media, where my platforms share book reviews and inspire action for people and planet, with kindness and hope, focusing on our children’s future.

I have won a number of awards, including being a South Australian State Finalist for Australian of the Year for my work in diabetes. As well as The Rebels of Mount Buffalo being longlisted in the DANZ, I was winner of the ZestFest writing competition, a special mention in the inaugural Deep Creek Fellowship, and short-listed in the inaugural SA Literary Fellowship.

I am an experienced speaker and have presented talks and workshops locally and internationally across a wide range of topics. I am a member of Writers’ Vic, Writers’ SA, Qld Writers Centre, Women’s Society of Writers Victoria, ASA, CBCA and SCBWI. I am part of the Author Pen Pals initiative and an Ambassador for Australia Reads and a Role Model with Books in Homes. I am passionate about inspiring action for our beautiful, fragile planet and nature features in all of my books. I find history fascinating and uncover stories that may have been forgotten, or hidden, and bring them into the light. My second novel, Legend of the Lighthouse Moon, will be published in October 2024 and my third in April 2025.

If you’re looking for a children’s author who speaks from the heart, who laughs loud and loves deep, who is passionate about people and planet, and who understands we come in a glorious rainbow of human beings, I’m your person.

Hi, I am Hayley Towers and I run my own micro law firm, Towers Legal.

I am a business lawyer, operating virtually for clients all over Australia. I have 18 + years of legal experience and I do all things contract, risk and compliance, employment, and even disputes.

My clients are usually “bigger” or regulated small business owners who need that extra bit of legal help on an on-going basis. I love to form ongoing relationships with business owners, so that we can work together holistically, often in step with your business accountant.

I live in the Adelaide Hills with my husband and two boys.
