My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I joined Business Chicks to meet interesting business women who I can network with and learn from. Perhaps I may even may a new friend.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

It is happening every day as my company grows as I have grown a top team of clinical social workers, psychologists and support staff who respond to workplace wellbeing issues.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I am kind and caring and compassionate to myself as a flawed and imperfect human being. I own my failures, reflect on my practice and keep moving forward.

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

A mind that does not know itself is crazy, cruel, dangerous and self destructive.

Which women inspire you and why?

My mum and my daughters. They are self aware, know their values and are all kicking goals in their individual lives.

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

My marriage ending taught me to be kind to myself and that I never know when a wave or tsunami is going to wash over me... AND I CAN COPE. I am proud of the way I have continued to grow and learn how to be the best mum, ex wife, businesswoman, partner, friend and daughter.

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

I easily engage with people and I have a gift of helping others discover their unique traits. I am intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. My gift is figuring out how people who are different can work together productively.

What makes you happy?

Me! - as I am living a full, rich and meaningful life.

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

I am successful now. I know who I am and protect my values every day.
