The voice behind Balance. I’m also a transformation coach, international speaker, budding psychologist and trauma therapist, published author and psychology researcher on a mission to teach 10 million women how to flourish on their terms by 2025.
I’ve created Letters from Balance off the back of 150+ in-depth interviews with busy, exhausted professional women. I am deeply concerned with the level of unconscious burnout and the longing for balance that felt elusive and continuously presented during these conversations. I feel called to create a simple solution that empowers working women (and mums) to create the space to unlock balance on their terms without burning out. You see, I’ve been there, and I’ve come out the other side into what I can only describe as harmony.
After 20 years in corporate change, I found myself burnt out and unfulfilled. I knew the life I was living was not in alignment with the things that truly mattered to me, and I rarely felt present for my then 3-year-old son. The shift I longed for felt huge and overwhelming, so I made excuses to stay in the familiarity of operating in overdrive. Until one day I looked in the mirror and I didn’t like who I’d become, let alone recognise her.
So, I leaned into my fear of uncertainty and turned my whole life upside down in pursuit of happiness. Within a seven-month period, I left a 16-year career as an executive, relocated my family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship and started my own purpose-driven company.
Whilst the path forward was unclear, and I didn’t feel ready, stepping into fear delivered opportunities I never imagined possible. Book & TV deals, TED Talks, International speaking gigs, and writing for the Harvard Business Review were by-products of learning to trust my intuition.
Most importantly, I created the freedom to flourish and live each day in alignment with what makes me feel alive.
I now spend my days empowering busy women to feel safe enough to reignite their spark💫 without guilt.
