After completing my PhD in biomedical sciences, I started my career as a research scientist working in regenerative medicine, before embarking on 14 years in corporate healthcare communications. 

I served clients from the NHS, pharmaceutical companies, and health charities by offering strategic, commercial and scientific support, and eventually, coaching and mentoring. 
 
My career in healthcare communications has enabled me to work in-house at a number of agencies, and also in a freelance consultancy capacity. I have also led an independent not-for-profit health policy consultancy. There, I worked on award-winning healthcare initiatives in areas of unmet need to reduce health inequalities, drive behaviour change, and shape health policy across the globe. 

Many of the strategic insights, skills and creative tools that I bring to my coaching clients come directly from my experiences working in corporate communications agencies.

Agency life is a notoriously high-stress, high-reward environment, and over the years I saw my colleagues and clients encounter challenging and stressful situations that often resulted in burnout. Many chose to re-evaluate and make changes to improve their lives. 
At one point, I also found myself in this situation and consulted a life coach. I came away from each session having learnt so much about myself. To this day I still feel amazed at how powerful coaching was for me, and how it opened my eyes and encouraged me to make some big changes to my life. I want others to experience this, which is why I chose to study for my diploma in Transformative Coaching. This is accredited by the world’s leading coaching bodies: the International Coaching Federation, the European Mentoring & Coaching Council, and the Association for Coaching. I am now an EMCC Accredited Coach and have been coaching professionally since 2019. 
 
My path to coaching is also a spiritual one. I have always been guided by a strong intuitive sense and a knowing that there is so much more to life than what we can see in front of us. This had led me to explore various spiritual practices, mindfulness and personal development from a young age.

While I focus on executive and leadership coaching and training, I believe that what happens in other areas of our lives impacts our careers, and vice versa.

Therefore, working with me is multi-faceted and leads to clients experiencing change in all areas of their lives. 
 
I am keen to support my local community and I sponsor an Oxford-based networking group, Oxford Business Buzz, which brings local business people together to meet, chat and do business. 
 
I also volunteer as a Yes Futures Coach. I work with young people to empower them to make ambitious choices and realise their potential by developing their confidence, resilience, and skills, leading to success both in and out of the classroom. 
 
I live in Oxfordshire with my husband Stephen, my daughter Lucy, and our cat Cleo. I love nature and spending time outdoors, and I’m passionate about exercise, energy healing modalities and anything to do with personal development.
