Certifying Program

As an accredited holistic health and wellness coach, I work at the intersection of personal wellbeing and work and purpose. My work bridges health coaching with executive mentoring to invite reflection on the interconnection between health and career performance, personal satisfaction and self-worth. I am passionate about combatting burnout and supporting emerging leaders to cultivate sustainable and authentic ways of working that generate the most conscious and impactful outcomes for the community. I have coached and mentored extensively on perfectionism and professional integrity – holding space for inquiry on how individuals can strive for excellence without tying their sense of personal value to the quality of their outputs; call on ethical principles to guide them in goal-setting and decision-making; and identify and navigate complex overlays of stakeholder interests, personal and professional values and risks in driving projects. Outside of coaching, my professional background is in the Australian Public Service (APS) where I have worked since 2015 in a variety of areas including royal commissions, redress for victims of institutional child sexual abuse, family safety, anti-corruption and national security; driving legislative reform, policy development and inter-jurisdictional and international negotiations. Prior to joining the APS, I worked in private legal practice and risk management consulting, and also had an 8-year career in the health and fitness industry as a multi-disciplinary group fitness instructor, manager and small business owner.
