About Me

I have always been a dreamer and a creative type. I remember painting the walls of my bedroom with clouds and designing my dream home when I was about 10.

I started to wander the world at 19 looking for adventure and something that made sense to me but in my late 20’s I found myself settling into a corporate career spanning another 20 years. This suited me well at the time as it allowed me to learn and develop team, leadership and development skills whilst in the evenings I was covered in paint, renovating houses!

In July 2016 I quit corporate. After working in a large organisation for about 20 years I hadn’t realised the amount of personal stress and conflict I was accumulating despite watching many people come and go – occasionally one would leave to “follow their dreams”.

It took TWO severe health scares for me to commit to finally making a change – an all-encompassing change, looking at my lifestyle, purpose and thoughts. I had chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety and I didn’t even realise it – this had quite frankly just become my norm over time.


It was time for a change.

I took the time to design my life. I surrounded myself with supportive mentors and coaches and decided to follow my Interior Design passion (finally) but still this was not enough. I needed more substance to it. Feng Shui found me…. using energy to enhance our environments came naturally and a natural progression from there was to use these tools to support people and their own dreams.

Not an odd mix at all as I believe that we all deserve to be the best versions of ourselves in supporting, beautiful, healthy environments. This is how I created my portfolio as an Interior Designer, Feng Shui Practitioner and Change Coach.

No matter how large or small, my purpose is now to help others plan and affect change in their own lives through a suite of tools, training and services to suit your individual needs.

I live in Brisbane, Qld and have studied with the Australian Institute of Creative Design, Joey Yap Feng Shui Academy and am a certified PROSCI Change Coach.
