"Things happen for you, not to you."

I talk for a living. On air, on camera and in front of a mic. I also live with 3 autoimmune illnesses (and counting!) and have started sharing stories about managing things when life doesn't turn out the way you'd planned.

genuine, determined, warm

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

Because each and every time I've met with the BC community here in Perth I've been encouraged, supported and inspired. I'm hoping to grow my BC connections and contribute a little more to the community in 2020.

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

Being handed a statuette for an industry award by Dame Edna Everidge!

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I remind myself that its how you perform during the worst times that matter the most. Then, I dive in head first and look for the opportunities. If that doesn't work, I go looking for ways to make my soul happy again - a genuine "fear-buster".

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

From change comes opportunity, don't fear it.

Which women inspire you and why?

Women who've defined the things that make them happiest in their day to day lives and found a way to integrate those with a successful business plan. Shout out to my lovely friend, Kathryn Preston!

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

Serious illness and a near death experience - yep, for real. Its helped me to assess the value of the way I spend my time, to prioritise the right things and know my worth. I choose now to only work on the projects that are worthy of my precious time with family, and on earth.

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.)

Setting the energetic tone. Be it for a radio show, television production or event. I bring an inviting sense of warmth, professionalism and engagement to the projects I work on, that make people desperate to join in!

What makes you happy?

Any time spent in good, salty sea-water! Sunsets over the ocean. And my puppy.

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

Being able to spend time each and every day doing something that makes my soul happy, while also paying the mortgage! A seaside resort style home would do the trick. This is why I need BC ;)
