An inspired life


I hold over 13 years experience in Financial Services, Digital, Coaching and Facilitation in corporate and wilderness settings.

I have totally recovered from 5 mental health breakdowns across 6 years, where doctors once told me I would be homeless.


I joyfully work at one of the largest banks in Australia, and have previously received a CEO Award at CommBank for my leadership skills.

I went from being $45K in debt, to creating a business venture that led to a six figure salary and I went onto purchase my own home in Sydney, Australia.

Similing Team

I facilitate from joy, and the experience is natural, effortless and genius, where previous participants said those days were "the best days of my career".
