My drive and passion for exploring human potential started at a young age while playing competitive soccer. Growing up as an athlete was behind my ambitious desire to push boundaries, both physically and mentally. I went on to play university soccer and compete in several national competitions while studying a degree in human movement science.
After a transformative process of transition and self-discovery, I started to question blind determination and began prioritising purpose-driven action. I’ve since become an advocate for the importance of holistic approaches to self-development alongside healthy, life-enhancing ambition.
I went on to complete a masters degree in Psychology of Coaching at the University of Sydney, Co-active Coach training through the Coaches Training Institute, advanced trainings in the mindfulness-based coaching approach ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and various yoga teacher trainings.
Integrating mind and body, my coaching approach focusses on helping people strengthen their connection with self and develop transformative practices to live a purpose-driven life they love. I believe that the self-exploration is a vehicle for transformation and that by developing self-awareness, we create opportunities for shifts towards more empowered living and leading.
I now work as a coach and facilitator, both nationally and internationally. My experience extends to working with international facilitation teams on globally recognised personal development and leadership programs including an Australian Business Awards® winner and an EFDM Excellence in Practice Gold Medal winner. I've worked on coaching programs and retreats as a facilitator in the USA, Canada, Asia, Australia and Central America. In 2015, I co-founded KEY Education Project, a non-profit organisation supporting young leaders in Nicaragua.
