Writer and Life Coach in Sydney, Australia

Read my blog

I am a Writer and Life Coach living in Sydney, Australia. I’m interested in wholehearted self-leadership and certified in personality type assessment via the Majors Personality Type Inventory™ based on Jung/Myers-Briggs theory. My focus is on how we create our story by gathering the threads of our uniqueness so we can shine.

As a writer and blogger at Quiet Writing, I explore personal narratives for creative living. As a Life Coach, I support women to develop more wholehearted careers and creative lives.

As a leader in the vocational education sector in Australia, I've had a special focus on how leadership impacts on innovation. I've been a ministerial adviser and Director of Strategic Policy for TAFE NSW and have headed up some of the largest and most dynamic training organisations in the country.

I have a background in adult literacy teaching with qualifications to Masters’ level in Language, Literacy and Literature. I’m a published poet and my work in the adult education fields of leadership impact, innovation and policy has received national and international attention.

Personality wise, I am an INTJ and champion of people understanding their introvert strengths and how to work them. I believe all people can benefit from more fully understanding their personality story and preferences, and also appreciating the differences of others.

My interests include a deep love of reading, swimming in the sea, walking by the beach and in the bush, and the intuitive art of tarot.
