“Learning is an experience. Everything else is just information.”
- Albert Einstein

I’ve worked in various digital marketing and business development roles for regional airlines, hotels and cruise liners. I managed a hot air balloon business, Global Ballooning Australia which took me around the world as I helped launch the experience to the international market.  I penned what I learned in a self-published book, Adventures of a Balloon Girl.

In 2014 I followed my calling to teach and became a certified trainer and assessor launching my own training and mentoring practice. Since launching I have developed over 30 online and group training programs specialising in digital, social media marketing, and tourism. Creating and delivering these programs to empower business owners and marketing professionals to be their own media and step up their marketing greatness fills me up.

What gets me out of bed in the morning?

Igniting excellence in people! I love spending time with my family and using all the digital tools available to help business and careers grow. What really gets me out of bed most mornings though is my 4.30am alarm. I love to start the day with a morning run or strength training to keep me fit and energised.

bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”

I’ve had diverse roles from direct customer service, visitor information, public programs development and interpretive centres, advertising, promotion, graphic design, workshop facilitation, strategic planning and submission writing, product and destination management. This breadth of experience has helped me to gather knowledge of integrated campaign development and creative production across all touch points from concept right through to final result, including print, digital and multi-platform outputs.

I embrace imagination, innovation and creativity., and to seek out ways to think outside the box.
