Senior Career Coach, General Assembly


I am an energetic and high-achieving career coach with over 9 years of experience in the educational sector, including working for Sydney’s leading universities. I’ve worked with 1000s of career-changers across Australia, New Zealand, and the APAC region to help them find jobs they love, at companies including (but not limited to) Canva, EY, CBA, and Domain. At the same time, I collaborate with organisations of all shapes and sizes to connect them with the latest and greatest talent at General Assembly.

The unique approach I take to coaching is informed by the major schools of psychotherapy, principles of design thinking and agile methodology, and behavioural science research. This approach is tailored to suit each client and their respective goals. I believe that everyone has an interesting story to tell and my strengths lie in helping people design their careers through understanding how to craft and pitch their personal brand.
