""Be yourself as everyone else is taken." Oscar Wilde"

I am often asked why I became an Image Consultant and why I followed my path. As a young girl I loved to draw elegant gowns in a myriad of beautiful colours. Then and now colour is an integral part of my life. I adore colour as it lifts your mood, changes your outlook and the right colour can make you look and feel a million dollars. And who doesn't want to feel amazing, on top of the world? This love of fashion and style continued throughout my life as I discovered if you look good, you feel good and it changes how you think and behave. I call it my Secret Weapon.

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

Business Chicks provides the opportunity to hear and meet people we would never have access to in our everyday lives. Where else can you get to go and hear the likes of such amazing women like Dr Jane Goodall, Dame Quentin Bryce and Magda Szubanski.

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

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

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

Which women inspire you and why?

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

My biggest challenge was as a single mother bringing up my two children for most of their life with no support from their father. When my marriage broke up I had no home, money or formal educational qualifications. My life was focused on ensuring a happy and fulfilling life for my children to make ends meet, so my career was not my priority. Through hard work over the years, I progressed in my career in the private and then public sectors with a strong background in strategic planning, change management, project management, marketing and publishing. I returned to study as a mature aged university student completing postgraduate studies and winning several awards for my work in the public sector. I always took a path in my career because it came along and I had to have food on the table. This focus changed as my children grew up and I discovered I wasnâ??t pursing a career I loved. I undertook training as an Image Consultant and founded my Image Consultancy, Defining Style in 2006
