Before enrolling at IIN, I was working as a cost engineer in a project management team for a global energy company. I'd recently made the decision to follow a vegan lifestyle, and I received a ton of questions about what on earth I was going to eat. To keep myself accountable, and to share all the amazing concoctions (and spectacular fails) I was making in the kitchen, I started my first blog.
By the time IIN caught my attention in late 2012, my blog had grown a small readership. One year later, I was SO happy I made the decision to enroll in IIN. Throughout my studies, I learnt and grew more than I could have ever imagined. And to my surprise, I fell in love with the idea of being a Health Coach.
In September of 2013, before I'd even graduated from IIN, I followed my heart and resigned from my corporate role, determined to establish my own health coaching business. It was scary leaving the (relative) security of a highly paid, long-term career, and in running my own business, I’ve worked harder than ever before. But it’s also been the most rewarding, inspiring, humbling, and fulfilling thing I've ever done in my life.
Thanks to IIN, I'm now a best-selling published author and my sobriety memoir, A Happier Hour, has touched the lives of thousands of women from around the world. I spend my days speaking at live events, coaching my beautiful clients (via the magic of Skype), and guiding my life-changing coaching program, Sexy Sobriety. The Sunday Times Magazine named me ‘One of Perth’s leading Healthpreneurs’! I’m honored to have shared my love for health and happiness with more than 100 online, video, audio and print publications.
