I was recognised as a high performer throughout my career in tax (working in a Big 4 accountancy firm and FTSE 100 businesses), where I experienced the thrills and spills of corporate life. I was responsible for leading numerous international restructuring, reorganisation, refinancing, transfer pricing and merger projects internationally (including in the US, UK, Australia, Singapore and across the EU) before leaving to focus on my calling.
My mission is to bring aliveness and awareness to the journeys of high-performing leaders, who are looking to live even more extraordinary lives, by inspiring them to realise their own incredible missions and potential. My intention is to help my clients to step into their own special flavour of aliveness in a way that is aligned with who they are and who they want to be, and create a commitment to living in courageous aliveness. Life is the most incredible adventure – my clients create their own and level-up their adventures of heart, mind and soul.
To support my own mission in the world, I trained with the Co-Active Training Institute and I’m a licensed as both a Careershifters & Firework Advanced Certified Coach (Career Change) and as a One of Many™ Certified Women’s Coach. I was also selected for the pioneer cohort of Rich Litvin’s exclusive coach training programme for extraordinary leaders and coaches, Transition Excellence (all coach training above recognised by the International Coach Federation)
I’ve been lucky enough to work with, be coached by, and learn from, some of the most powerful and incredible high-performing coaches and leaders on the planet.
I also call on over 35 years of performance experience and use it to support and challenge my clients in unique ways. I’ve received training from Mountview, Academy of Creative Training and performed lead roles with various theatre companies in productions as diverse as Anything Goes, Kipps (the Half a Sixpence musical), Titanic – the musical, Kiss Me, Kate!, Sister Act, Jane Eyre, and Wyrd Sisters.
I’m also a Chartered Tax Advisor and Taxation Technician (as a member of both the Chartered Institute of Taxation and Association of Taxation Technicians) and hold a Law LLB (Hons) degree from the University of Sussex.
I work privately with clients and as a leader, facilitator and coach on Careershifters‘ online Career Change Launch Pad, the world’s longest-running group-based career change course. I also provide ongoing support to career changers through the Launch Pad Membership. I’m always looking for how things can be improved, then rolling up my sleeves and making it happen. I love working with others on inspiring and creative projects and initiatives.
Fun facts about me: I thrive if you give me a performance space to play in, new things to experiment with and books to read (as long as they’re fascinating, challenging or transformative). I’ve written odd musicals, comedy skits and random musings – and some of them have been performed in the most unlikely of places. Spiritual connection and aliveness is a must have. Don’t attempt small talk with me – I get bored very easily. I need to spend time in natural spaces regularly (preferably barefoot) or I turn into a goblin.
I love getting to know new people, so if you’re curious about me, my work or collaborating together, let’s set up a time and speak.
