I am a Certified Leadership Coach who helps professionals, entrepreneurs and executives develop their emotional intelligence and authenticity to become leaders of their professional and personal lives.

I have always been driven by the desire to help others and the world we live in. I started my career as an environmental consultant, working with multinational corporations and local communities in Australia, Europe, South America and East Africa. In 2011 I co-founded the ‘creatives without borders’ social business, Komai, where I worked in Southeast Africa developing music education initiatives in collaboration with The New School in New York.

After six years of working in environmental and creative community development internationally, I was recruited by Refinery29 in NYC to help them understand and connect with the female millennial audience. I became the Director of Product Marketing and User Research and a leader within Refinery29. When I was selected to receive formal leadership coaching, I experienced first-hand the life-changing benefits of coaching and fell in love with the philosophy.

With the support of Refinery29, I went on to receive my certification in coaching (ACC) from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and founded my own coaching practice. I have been a coach for executives, professionals and entrepreneurs in advertising, branding, design, publishing/media, real estate and fashion. My clients have come from companies including Droga5, Google, Anomaly, The Participation Agency, Calvin Klein, Delivery Hero, Narcity Media, Joan, Matter Unlimited, Sotheby’s, Wednesday Agency, Skillshare, Newmark Knight Frank, Saban Brands and Barings.

I am based in New York and coach professionals and entrepreneurs globally. I have a double degree in Anthropology and Biology and a Masters Degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Sydney, Australia. I am also a certified EQ assessor (EQAC) with Six Seconds, The Emotional Intelligence Network.
