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

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 Droga5, Google, Anomaly, The Participation Agency, Calvin Klein, Delivery Hero, Narcity Media, Joan, Matter Unlimited, Wednesday Agency, 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.
