A scientist by training and nature, I love the concept of a coach as a human catalyst for positive change. I love that my work creates a link between my passions for science, human behavior, and performance. I feel really fortunate to have found a place where my interests combine and, whether it be building a productive coaching relationship or curating the most impactful team retreat, strategy, or ideation session, I am able to draw on both my understanding of product design and the science behind what drives performance, connection and a resourceful mindset.
I began my career as a scientist working for multinational leading teams in product development and innovation.
In 2008 I completed my first coach training after becoming obsessed with the impact it had on me personally. The director I worked for at the time had donated some of his time with his exec coach to me and it was a revelation! Since this time I transitioned my career into the coaching and people development space.
In 2010 I transitioned my career away from leading product innovation teams; towards the coaching and people development space; making the leap from a role leading teams dreaming up new chocolate bars to a small management consultancy in London where I could learn the coaching trade. I become a practitioner and subsequently a master practitioner of NLP in 2010, and over the last ten years, I have applied and developed my coaching practice working with executives in business, from first-line managers to C-Suite leaders and their teams.
I have continued my education into the field of human performance, becoming accredited in a wide range of psychometric tools including those focussed on understanding self and others, and those that are predictive of workplace performance. I have also partnered, designed, and delivered development programmes with some fantastic thinkers in the area of human performance, including The Energy Project, Covey, Harvards, and Ron Heifetz.
