My story

I’m proud to stand up as an example of how coaching can transform lives. Having spent 25 years working in Insights and Brand Strategy in a range of industries I chose to undertake advanced study to become a Post Graduate qualified Executive Coach. I know first-hand the difference that support through coaching can make, and I have experience of coaching, as well as developing others through Professional Coach Skills Training, across a range of organisations. My key focus is coaching women, specifically supporting women returning from maternity leave where the need remains great despite the massive strides that have been made in recent years. I joined Matthew Radley as an Associate in 2017.
