Having over 20 years experience leading teams through change in Government, Not for Profit and Private sector I love bringing the best out of people. I bring unique skills of finance, leadership, mindset and wellbeing to challenge traditional approaches and bring practical tools to inspire action, connection, and positive change.

Enjoying 13 years in the disability sector I have experienced first hand the toll of constantly giving can have on the body and mind. Hence I am passionate about creating healthy workplaces where people can make a positive impact while also preserving their wellbeing and preventing burnout.

Our Leaders have the potential to create the biggest changes in our communities but often they are high achievers, working twice as hard due to mindset challenges like perfectionism, imposter syndrome and self-doubt. That is why I created the Leaders Circles to support business owners and leaders to make a difference without the inner critic and burnout. Connection, wellbeing, and achieving results are top values for me and this is the foundations of the Leaders Circles.

Having started my career as an accountant my fascination with human behaviour and wanting to help people reach there potential saw me go on to become a Master NLP Coach, Hypnotherapist, and last year becoming an NLP trainer.

I provide engaging, inclusive and insightful leaders circles, workshops and coaching programs to support leaders, teams and organisations achieve their outcomes through the power of neuroscience, leadership and wellbeing.
