How I can help you
You are at a cross road. You are tired of the rut, of the known. You know that you are capable of so much more than you are currently living. You want to be the change the world needs and use your unique gifts, skills, experience and leadership to make a lasting difference. You may have had your fair share of success - but your soul aches for significance. You want purpose and fulfilment. You want a safe space to explore and plan what your next season will look like.

Based on your unique values, I help you be intentional in the changes you want to make. I challenge you to cut through the clutter of distraction and overwhelm that can lead to excuses, confusion and inertia and help you honour this season of transition you are in to gain clarity and decisiveness once again and lay the right foundation for your next season of unprecedented leadership, significance and growth.
Your sessions are designed to leave you known for who you are, challenged to ask the right questions, with a new sense of clarity, energy and excitement. Appreciating yourself and the story you are writing.

A bit about me...
Ever since I was a little girl...
...I have had the deep rooted passion to make the world a better place and help people live their unique purpose.
Born & raised in Vienna, Austria I grew up in a family who loved God, helped people and valued the arts. I learnt that leadership means serving people and that with any privilege in life comes responsibility. I studied business, wrote my Master Thesis on Management of Expatriates in Canada, and my Doctorate on Corporate Social Responsibility and the Strategic role of Cross Sector Partnerships in Australia. My research, rolled out by the Chamber of Commerce, pioneered change around corporate citizenship and provided strategic directions to many corporates in Australia.
As an executive and consultant to executives I honed my skills in strategy, leading organisational change and cross sector partnerships. For two years I worked alleviating poverty with UNDP in Africa, where I also designed and led a country wide cross sector campaign against Female Genital Mutilation.
Other accomplishments include repositioning a membership organisation, leading the turn around of large teams, raising substantive financial support through establishing significant partnerships for organisations such as The Salvation Army, Mission Australia, Opportunity International Australia.
As Chief Philanthropy Officer and Development Director I have worked with many of the leading philanthropists and change agents in the country and have been a passionate advocate for social justice.
As Writer and Actress I gained great understanding in what drives and motivates people to pursue their goals and what works against them. As Theatre Director I have learnt to cast a vision, to unlock creative potential and direct a room of players and creatives towards a shared goal. As a writer, actress, director, and visual artist, I believe in the power of the arts to touch humanity at a deep level.
My entrepreneurial Canadian husband Paul and I have been married and lived in Sydney Australia for over 20 years and together we are parents kept on our toes by our four dynamic teenagers and our lab Bailey.
I have known the blessings of success, but have also gone through seasons of challenge, loss and grief, of transitions which have refined my character, search for meaning and faith, and have given me spiritual insights into the anatomy of pain and purpose and what it takes to rise up, forgive, harness honest reflection for greater wisdom, vulnerability for greater resilience and strength.
It would be my privilege to work with you.
