As a life coach I have a special interest in women’s empowerment. I can help you when negotiating life changes such as divorce, confidence building, career change, self esteem and relationship challenges. Before training to become a coach in 2014, I owned 2 successful hospitality businesses, earned a degree in management & entrepreneurship and raised two sons. Nine years ago I went through a series of major bumps in my life including divorce and bereavement. As well as grieving, I had a whole identity crisis too, as my work, social circle and support network dissolved overnight. Life coaching helped me turn things around in such a fast and profound way that I trained to be a coach myself and have helped many other women through their own transitions, and back on the path to success. My interests include art, women’s issues, personal development and the great outdoors. For 6 years I was committee and board member of NZ Sculpture On Shore, a major charity art event which, to date, has raised over NZ$1.5m for Women’s Refuges. I love to meet new people and am passionate about empowering others to be their best.
