From a young age, I have always wanted to help people and make a positive difference in their life. Over the years I have helped many friends, family and work colleagues through different life obstacles and never imagined I could be doing this as a job!

I graduated from Auckland University with a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Psychology and went on to work as an Operations Manager for a pharmaceutical company. I loved having an exciting career but when it came time to become a Mum everything changed. I wanted the best of both worlds, how to be a Mum to my son but also how to have a flexible career that I enjoyed without going back to work full time.

A number of people over the years had mentioned to me that I would make a good life coach, but I had always laughed at the suggestion. It wasn’t until I was on maternity leave and the idea of becoming a Life Coach and having my own business became more appealing.

The course at NZIBS has been amazing and exceeded my expectations. I loved being able to complete the course in my own time and at home with the support of my tutor and other students. It’s provided me with a solid foundation to launch my Life Coaching business and to have confidence in my ability.

I am now a Professional Life Coach working with a range of different people to help them live their best life and I absolutely love what I do!
