For a decade, I used my knack for words in corporate communications. Eventually, like many of us, I realised I was following someone else’s map. I needed to find my own way.
Helping them articulate their personal vision of service, and watching that process light up their self-belief and energy, is a genuine joy. The surprising part has been the deepening trust in my intuition and renewed intimacy with my own words.
Inseparable to this is my experience living with a chronic illness called Crohn’s. This has been a catalyst for inner exploration, and for learning what it means to be unapologetically me.
That is, not rejecting or denying anything about my self in order to conform to external models of success, and crafting a business and life in alignment with my natural rhythms and pace. It has also meant taking time to pause, to rest and simply be.
It's an ongoing and unfolding practice.
I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia, with my husband and two rescue cats.
