I’m a career coach for millennial women, a lawyer, a podcaster, dog mamma and a big dreamer.
I pursued law with a passion for wanting to make a difference in this world, I got my dream job in a big commercial law firm and thought I’d made it, until I felt like something was missing.
I had a huge light bulb moment of… “shit! I don’t want to just be a cog in a big wheel and I sure as hell don’t want to spend my life climbing the corporate ladder”.
After this big realisation the niggling thought of “this is not the environment for you” kept creeping in, until one day I decided to quit my first job as a lawyer. This was scary, but this was the first step to me saying YES to myself and my dreams and was the beginning of me getting back into the driver’s seat of my life.
I quit my job with nothing else lined up (more on this on my podcast) and so the soul searching began.
I had 4 months to myself and that time was a blessing. I started my podcast, The Raw Pod with the intention to share my journey navigating my life and career as a young lawyer and I also signed up for my dream life coaching course at the Beautiful You life Coaching Academy.
Oh but I didn’t quit the law all together, I got really clear and intentional about how I wanted my next role to look like and I attracted exactly what I wanted. I now work as a lawyer for a small developer company and it fits into my life and business so well.
MY LIFE’S PURPOSE IS TO UPLIFT, CHALLENGE, HELP, SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE WOMEN TO STEP UP AND SHINE THEIR LIGHT SO BRIGHTLY THAT OTHERS CAN’T IGNORE IT
Fast forward a year later… I get to coach amazing millennial women and help them attract their dream career just the way I did and also be working in a role as a lawyer that empowers and inspires me. How truly blessed are we to be living in an era where we can design our life on our own terms.
What lights me up the most is empowering women to stop playing small and to truly recognise their gifts. I believe that every woman deserves to have a career that she loves because a woman that is in love with her career shows up as her best self in all other areas of her life.
Other than being a super driven type A woman and dreaming and creating big, I love nothing more than car trips with my boyfriend, singing at the top of our lungs and completely butchering the lyrics, snuggling up with Cardi (my adorable staffy pup) and walking to my parents house for an afternoon coffee and catch up. I’m really a simple gal living in a big city and I’m happiest when I’m around the ones I love the most.
