Born-and-raised in a small town in the North of New Zealand, I had no direction or idea about what my life would be. I’m proud of where it is today having to have created a life where I have the privilege of empowering others to live their best lives, even through adversity.

Through my bestselling books, online courses and one on one mentoring I am committed to helping you to find your purpose, dream big and take the action steps required to make it happen.

One of the things I’m often asked is “How on earth do you fit all of the things you do into your life?

 I love business, healthy living and helping people to achieve their full potential. It is the love of what I do and my purpose that energises me to fit so much into my day.

I am multi passionate about a range of things that are seemingly unrelated: cooking, writing, entrepreneurship, creativity, business, relationships, sailing, travel and local cuisine just to name a few. I have a burning desire to create and share and this little corner of the internet is where I do that.

When I left school at sixteen years old with no purpose or direction, I slipped from one thing to another, unable to find my purpose. I started my first business at 20 years old and have had quite a few since then. Some very successful and quite a few that were not.

I had children young and supported my then husband’s business, which is what a lot of women do. When I went through divorce at only 27 years old, my world came crashing down and I was left dis-empowered and shell shocked. I had to start again, but how?!

At thirty years old, I went to university to become a lawyer with the goal of empowering other’s through their separation and divorces. It was time for me to bring my whole self to the table so that I could thrive in the world and not only create a life that I had dreamed of but also help thousands of people do the same.

Since then I have created my own law practice where we specialise in assisting people through the transition of separation and divorce and I tapped into my creative side and passion for cooking creating Real Food Pledge, as well as authoring two bestselling cook books. Today my life looks completely different to the young girl who had no purpose.

I believe that we can all tap into what is meant for our lives and no matter what your challenges, passions or dreams are, that you have the power to change your life and create the life that you have always wanted.

That brings me to you...
