I’ve put myself in plenty of real mucky situations; taken a lot of decisions in my life that made sense logically, but were short-lived and definitely not fulfilling.
I ignored both my intuition and didn’t follow my heart, all-along learning these are two very important anchors needed to guide my life ship. I’ve spent a lot of unnecessary time holding on, believing other’s opinions or ideas were more important than my own, and jumping from employer to employer, and even jobs within an organization. My fear of what may happen or what someone may think of my decisions was completely stopping me.
When I finally listened to and honoured my inner-voice and slowed down to take the time to reflect, I recognized the importance of both prioritizing and communicating my needs both professionally and personal. Following my heart has allowed me to step into courageous and impactful actions.
Having walked away from my marriage, and having made the tough choice around my family
I also made the difficult choice to leave a good-paying, yet emotionally dead-end corporate job because it was not feeding my soul.
Not everyone in my life understood my choices, approved of me, or even supported me, but it was in these choices and journey, where I discovered the empowerment and strength for myself in choosing to make my happiness a priority. I knew without ensuring my own happiness I would be useless to other people in supporting and serving others.
It is the difficult and life altering choices we make as women in the face of uncertainty that defines who we are in the world.

In choosing ME, I am now able to support YOU in making professional happiness a priority.
Half of the employed population globally are unhappy or hate their job! I was one unhappy woman and odds are... you may be too.
My job left me “Working For The Weekend” to quote my favourite Loverboy song. My personal "witching hour" was Sundays at 5pm. The 200 km commute was killing me. I felt that I had no control over my life and time. This began to affect my relationships. My demeanour was changing and I was becoming someone I didn’t like or want to hang out with. This left me searching for a meaningful profession. Giving myself permission to be me and be free allowed me to take the big leap and leave my corporate career.
My business has taken flight. It’s a complete representation of me and it's completely on my terms. I now support other women to create a profession and take flight.
My business has me speaking and providing training on methodology that supported my successful transformation and transition journey; and most of all, make a meaningful difference on women’s lives.
My wish is for you to have the same as me. I want to support and teach you and witness your beautiful metamorphous journey.
Let's connect, I want to hear your story!
