My steps to success

Each of us in on a hero or heroine journey


My transformational journey started with a love of science, discovery, invention, and adventure. As a child I played with test tubes, microscopes, inventing new gadgets, designing new products and businesses, travelling to faraway places or having great adventures of my own design. My childhood dreams led me to become a researcher, studying the mindsets, and steps for career and business success.

I came to Australia on a soul’s journey, re-designing my life to reflect my values of freedom, adventure, and innovation.

Along the way, I learned to sail and take the helm of my life, career, and small business—all childhood dreams.

My experience with leaders, founders, and business builders and my research on career and business design, led me to create the coaching and professional development programs that I call Accelerate You!TM

Fun facts about me

I have designed my life around my core values



Finding courage by moving toward my fear makes me stronger.

Riding my motorcycle symbolises courage for me and is fuelled by my need for freedom.



Seizing the adventure that comes from challenging myself, mastering something new, and enjoying going where the wind blows and where my heart takes me, continuously reminds me of my strengths.

Sailing symbolizes adventure and enables me to claim my personal power for decision making and results.



Creating gives me time and space to feel, conceive, give birth, nurture, imagine, love, and experience abundance.

Making art is therapeutic and releases emotions, beliefs, and influences that no longer serve me and illuminates my transformational journey.
