With twenty five years’ experience in HR, Recruitment and Talent, and within Executive Search as a head-hunter of HR Leaders, I founded my business in 2016 to support both organisations and individuals.

About me

I started my career in HR, Resourcing and Talent roles within the Retail industry. I then worked as a head hunter specialising in HR leadership roles. I am now a Coach, helping leaders land their perfect role and being brilliant in it, by playing to their strengths.

I have studied at both Durham and Oxford University. I am a Barefoot trained Coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation at Associate Certified Coach (ACC) level. I am an accredited Strengths Profile Practitioner. I am a LinkedIn Top Voice for Job Search and Careers and a ‘Digital Mums’ qualified Social Media Manager and I help my clients use social media more effectively to network and raise their profile.

I strongly believe in taking opportunities that come your way and stepping out of your comfort zone, and I have lived and worked outside of the UK in Germany, Chile and Singapore.

I believe in giving back and paying it forward and do a range of pro bono work as a Mentor for Protégé, and an Ambassador for KidsOut.

Alongside my work, which is a passion, I am a mum to an energetic nine-year-old. I am a book lover, a festival goer, a builders’ tea drinker and a house plant nurturer. I enjoy art and photography.
