I am on this grand adventure that is Motherhood with our three wonderful, energetic children and my husband of 12 years. Nothing can ever adequately prepare you for being a parent, and everything it encompasses. Despite the challenges and hardships, I couldn't imagine life without them. 

I am an Introvert Extrovert. I am friendly, welcoming, outgoing and love being around people. With that said, I am comfortable with silence and need to retreat every so often to be still to regroup and re-energise. I'm a 9 on the Enneagram Personality Test - bit of trivia for you. I'm amused by these kinds of personality assessments - they're usually so incredibly ... right!

Humour is my go-to. Life in general is funny, quirky and often down right weird. The saying "laughter is the shortest distance between two people" resonates with me because in my experience, it's so true. Spend a few minutes with me and we'll be laughing and chatting in a comfortable "I feel like I've known you forever" way.

Cats or dogs? Definitely a cat person. We have three. They were my fur babies before the human kind and have a very special place in my heart ... and bed.

My favourite TV programs at the moment are Bold and the Beautiful and more recently, 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!'.


I'm an avid reader with usually 2 or 3 books on the go at the same time.

I'm an observer by nature and have a deep curiosity about life, love and the human experience. From a young age, human behaviour has always intrigued me. What's the 'Why?' Before I even held a car license, psychology and developmental texts along with criminal profiling books adorned my book shelves. 

I've travelled to 4 different countries and there still is no place like home. 

So that's a bit about me, how about you?

Hello there!

Since you're considering us working together, I thought you might like to know a few things about me first ...
