Are you a heart-centred, introverted service provider, coach or creative ready to grow your business? Welcome!
I'm on a mission: to empower more women with service businesses to share their expertise with the world.
Every day, I connect with incredible business owners just like you. They are passionate about their work but feel that their introverted nature is a hindrance to promoting it.
They want to help more people but conflicting advice about "getting more visible" leaves them confused, drained and ready to hide under the covers.
Sound familiar? If you're nodding along, then it's time for us to talk.
Blending my extensive background as a marketer with the insights gained from embracing my introverted self - I've developed strategy and systems that make marketing more sustainable for introverts.
I help my clients expand their reach, attract more clients and amplify their impact, without completely draining their energy.
Are you ready to do the same? Then you've come to the right place.
WHAT'S YOUR 'WHY'?
What gets you out of the bed in the morning? When business is tough, what fuels you to keep moving forward?
These are just a few of the questions I ask my clients, so
I didn't always have a burning desire to become an entrepreneur. In fact, I wanted to climb the corporate ladder and have a career that took me on adventures around the world.
As fate would have it, while studying at the University of Auckland I worked part-time for an online start-up. I admired the determination of the founders and the team fuelled by copious amounts of caffeine grew quickly. They provided my first foray into marketing, sparking a flame that would shape my career aspirations.
The following decade saw me immersed in marketing roles across various sectors—retail, government agencies, and event companies. From New Zealand to overseas, each experience added layers to my professional journey.

But my view of the corporate ladder changed. I wanted to become a Māmā but encountered hurdles —burnout from work and health challenges. So I stepped off the ladder and into freelancing. This shift introduced me to the liberating world of self-employment. Eventually, blessed with little ones, the flexibility of this lifestyle became a natural fit.
During a career break to focus on family, I ventured into volunteer work with a non-profit in Indonesia. Managing their marketing for a few years, I cherished the opportunity to apply my skills for broader community impact.
The pandemic prompted my return to New Zealand, marking the genesis of my coaching business. Here, I've blended my marketing expertise with a passion for helping others, while maximsing family time.
