I have had a varied career working in the creative arts, in the fitness industry, in education and now in coaching and consulting. During this time I have worked as a sole trader, a contractor, as well as an employee. For the last 10 years I have been in leadership, leading in large organisations with complex needs. My final role was as a Primary School Headteacher in a deprived area. This has given me a varied and extensive skill set, particularly in relation to communication, resilience and business. I am now Founder and Director of my own company.
All of my roles have involved working with people to help them to achieve their best, whilst supporting them on their journey. This is what I am most passionate about, it is what drives me and gets me out of bed in the mornings. Whilst in leadership, I discovered coaching and it transformed my life! I immediately set out to get the best training available in the UK and I have been fortunate in working with some of the best coaches from all over the world. Because I strongly believe in the power of coaching, I still work with my own coach twice a month, as I continue to get incredible results with my own personal journey.
Coaching has shown me what is possible, what can be achieved, and it has allowed me to lead with a strong sense of moral purpose, considering the wellbeing and development of all. I have a strong life purpose, valuing each individual on their journey of transformation, so that they can see what is possible and have the tools to create their own future. This is paramount and so rewarding.
I am happiest when I am living a life that is truly in line with my values, when I feel strong, purposeful and can share lots of laughter with others. Happiness and a sense of purpose are contagious – and so they should be!
