About me

I have worked in the environment and outdoor recreation sector in a range of roles for around 30 years, with over 20 years as a manager.

Along the way, I’ve discovered that I really love helping people to achieve more than they believed they possibly could. I've found coaching to be a wonderfully effective way to do this, helping people gain positive outcomes in personal development and wellness, career and performance. Working with people to make positive changes in their lives through coaching brings me lots of joy. I find people endlessly intriguing and inspiring. 

I’ve coached individuals and teams both face to face and remotely as part of my role throughout my time as a manager, and formalised this in 2022 with an ICF accredited ACSTH diploma. Since then I’ve been coaching in my own time, as well as through my substantive role.

I'm currently on a 2 year career break from my substantive role, to concentrate on my twin passions of coaching and travelling.
