Up until I was 50 I thought I had it all.
I was married to a great man, had two beautiful daughters, and a home and a creative career that I loved.
I felt I had slain my dragons.
I had survived a near-death serious illness in my mid-20s, three miscarriages, and then two difficult pregnancies.
I had navigated learning how to raise and support a daughter on the autism spectrum and another with anxiety and survived one of the cruellest blows the sudden loss of my dearest friend.
We had moved into the home of my dreams and I was looking forward to a new time in my life with my hubby.
And then without even a wobble, the wheels fell off!
I had always nailed my applications and my interviews, but for the first time in my life, it became difficult to get a job. Something that had always been so easy, was now out of my reach.
Ever the optimist and always one to bounce back after being knocked down, I kept trying but to be honest for the first time in my life I didn’t know what to do.
I decided that I had to reinvent myself.
It was time to dig deep and think about what it was that I really wanted to do. What was it that would make my soul sing? Now was my chance, one door may have closed but another one was waiting to be opened.
Over the years the roles I had worked in and my training had given me skills in working with people from all walks of life.
Supporting our daughters grow into beautiful young women who embraced their differences gave me the gift of learning to walk alongside someone, helping them to achieve their goals.
And so, I pursued a lifelong dream of becoming someone who gave possibility and hope to others.
My passion is working with women
to make a difference
My dream is to give every woman a
Licence to Create a life she loves
