I’ve lived a very colourful life, both personally and professionally.
In my 20s, I lived under the stars and caught wild donkeys in Australia’s harsh Outback; was Australia’s first female oil company representative; and set-up and ran a couple of small businesses.
From my early 30s, I spent 14 years working in the media, primarily as a talk-back radio broadcaster, before beginning my academic journey which resulted in the completion of five university degrees including a PhD.
My multi-disciplinary doctoral dissertation/thesis was titled: Heart-Centred Virtue Ethics: Raising Ecological Consciousness in Organisations. I then taught ethics, leadership, and change management for the MBA programs at a couple of leading universities in Australia and their off-shore campuses in Hong Kong and Singapore. During that time, I also spent a couple of years delivering an Ecotourism Interpretation workshop that I designed for the Singapore National Parks Board.
Woven throughout all of my media work and university studies, were extensive academic and independent studies in areas such as spirituality, religious studies, quantum theory, new science, positive psychology, coaching psychology, neuroscience, and behavioural science including Practitioner and Master Practitioner levels of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming); together with a range of different work activities as a leadership coach, corporate trainer, speaker, and sessional mediator/conciliator for the Department of Justice in both Victoria and Queensland.
My greatest passion has always been to elicit the magic in others that enables them to manifest boundaryless possibilities.
