Over 25 years in the game means I bring a strong mix of proven business acumen and ironclad credentials to the table. But that’s only part of the story. A firm believer that real-world experience is just as crucial as corporate cred, a lifetime of applying strategy on the run and continuously adapting to change has equipped me with invaluable street smarts, razor-sharp insights and a deep understanding of how to survive and thrive – in business and in life.
From humble beginnings on the streets of Sydney’s West, I certainly wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Part fight for survival, part white-knuckle rollercoaster ride, my life has certainly shaped the person I’ve become. Someone who used every hard knock, setback and tough drawcard to fuel her rather than hold her back; who flipped the script, learnt to apply strategy on the run, face challenges head on and rise up against all odds.
I made a conscious choice to do whatever it took to actively create the future and strategically carve a trajectory of success. Through adversity, I developed tremendous resilience and true grit. Some of the worst streets of Sydney proved to be the best teachers. They propelled me into becoming agile, adaptable and ready for whatever was coming around the next corner. They equipped me with invaluable street smarts, unbreakable resilience and an innate ability to anticipate change, readily adapt and survive.
I’ve got a no BS approach and a low tolerance for excuses. I’m straight up and down-to-earth. As committed to denim as I am addicted to coffee. Deeply authentic and innately curious. And my passion lies in helping individuals, businesses and organisations lift their game so they can be more, do more and have more.
Working with me, you’ll benefit from a rare combination of specialist skills in strategy, sales, marketing, operations, leadership and change; all delivered with a pragmatic punch, a tailored approach, and a cross-hair focus on delivering tangible results.
I don’t believe in following the rules, but I do believe in rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in if you want to achieve truly stand-out results. So if you’re willing to ‘go all in’ with someone who’s fully invested in your success (and knows how to get you there) – let’s talk!
