I am a wife, mother and music lover. I have two children (aged 12 and 14) and live in South East London. Originally from the Isle of Man where I grew up and started my professional career, but moved to London 20 years ago.
I currently spend my time busy with family and friends and work coaching corporate individuals to find success and happiness in the work they do. I love being able to use my knowledge, experience and qualifications to help people find solutions to manage their careers and maximise their potential. I want everyone to have fulfilling jobs without sacrificng their life outside of work.
I spent over 20 years in the Investment Management Industry in various Senior Management roles including Product Development, Project Management, Client Relationship Management, Investment Operations and Operational Risk. I have a wealth of experience in managing business change and responsibility for teams of staff.
I have worked full time, taken maternity leave (twice) and worked part time so understand some of the challenges around making a corporate career work with a family and transitioning into new roles.
After leaving the corporate world I created and managed my own small business. I designed, manufactured and distributed indoor mini trampolines for children. The product was sold on-line and won awards, featured at festivals, in national press, gift guides and was supplied to hospitals and specialist schools.
I have worked from my kitchen table, run a business on my own, built a business to scale and experienced life as an entreprenuer.
My professional qualifications include a Management Diploma from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) which had a coaching element and I have a Professional Coach Diploma. I am an accredited coach (ACC) with International Coaching Federation (ICF) and you will find me on The Coach Directory too. I am also a certified Online Business Consultant.
I mainly focus on 1:1 sessions for Career Fulfilment.
I was very fortunate to have coaching in both my previous corporate world and when running my own business. I know the amazing value that having a coach can add in a variety of ways and I am now passionate about offering that to as many other people as possible.
