Get to know me

If I had to give myself a job title I’d claim “Wellness Warrior for all things Woman” – but that doesn’t roll of the tongue well, let alone fit on a business card!

Actually I am a lover/partner/girlfriend (whatever romantic attachment you’re comfortable with) and Mummy first and then most of the rest of the time I’m busy doing my ‘day-job’.  But to me working with women, coaching and guiding women to optimum wellness isn’t a job at all…it’s my life’s work.

And I love it.

Transformational Wellness Coach

I am a Coach first and Trainer second.

I want to reach women wherever they are on the their rollercoaster journey with their body, to help them find themselves and fulfil their unrealised potential.

I want to be able to take each woman by the hand and show her the way to a healthier, more evenly balanced life, where an arbitrary number isn’t the ultimate goal. I strive to help women figure out what their deepest needs and wants are, and then walk beside them as they make the little (or big) steps they need to take to get there.

I am an educator and a guide.

In my career before kids (BK) I worked in Corporate HR where leadership and career coaching was very much part of world.  I operated in a world where the creation and management of culture change was my bread and butter.  I help organisations and people create and sustain change.

And then I had children!

Personal Trainer

I have “enjoyed” a rocky-road to wellness throughout my life. It wasn’t until I had my two children that my perspective shifted and my passion for health and wellness became the essence of who I am.

I have obsessively trained twice a day every day to complete a triathlon. I have spent months eating for two and over-indulging on Cadbury’s Dairy Milk whilst coming to terms with motherhood, sleepless nights and cracked nipples. I have dragged myself to the gym and skipped to the swimming pool. I have run to keep sane, to think and to escape my crazy, out of balance life.

I have broken my foot. I have held a Victorian State Record for 800m freestyle and won the same event at Nationals. I have had bilateral hip surgery (three times!) and I am in the process of making a comeback.

My life challenges me on a daily basis.  I have two beautiful children of my own body, three step-children and a wonderful man who I do messy, fun, ‘Brady Bunch’ life with.  I have an ex-husband and a dead husband.  I know emotional abuse, feelings of being trapped, loss and grief.  I know joy, peace and true love.  I get that life doesn’t always go according to plan.

I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, moved to England at the age of 10 and then to Australia at 34.

I have a grand vision to reach out and heal women.  I have deep-rooted stretch goals and I promise to support and challenge you in equal measure.

Together, we will get you fit and strong for the rest of your life not for “12-weeks” or a bikini holiday.  My aim is to walk the path to wellness with you, and ensure you become the very best version of you.

I specialise in training women other Trainers don’t want to train – women who have been let down by their body, or their lives, often both.  I know what that feels like.

I believe in…

I believe in strong women, who thrive when uplifted and supported by other likeminded women, truly connected to their feminine rhythm and intuition.

♥ I believe in asking questions, developing knowledge and above all wisdom.

♥ I believe in the power of gratitude, love, passion, kindness and mostly just honouring the good in everyone.

♥ I believe the glass is always half full, even when it doesn’t feel like it.  Sometimes we just need to step back, be guided and see our situation through a different lens.  We were all put on this earth uniquely imperfect to ride out whatever waves are sent our way.  It’s not always easy, but with a transformed perspective it’s possible to see the silver-lining in even the stormiest skies.

♥ I believe that a proper cup of tea, the right circle and a whole lot of sharing and laughing, can solve most problems.

And, I believe in you.

 

Now you know a bit more about me and why I do what I do, I would love to connect with you.
