I spent my 20s organising football tournaments, gala events, and meetings all around Europe – a glamorous life so people thought. My work was diverse, challenging, and every day was different. I got to travel the planet and spent my life in exciting hotels. I am deeply grateful for this experience. It equipped me with everything I needed to start my own successful venture. However, back then, I felt overworked, stressed, and hardly found any time to appreciate life outside of work. I blamed company politics and people around me for my unhappiness. Despite changing jobs a few times, nothing seemed to take that burden off of me.
Approaching my 30th birthday, I knew it was time for me to start taking charge of my life. I joined a career change programme at Escape the City and hired a fantastic coach. Lots of events unfolded from this; I went freelancing in my existing role and was able to support my time off. I spent my free time researching myself; learning about my strengths, skills, values, and passions. I reconnected with what truly matters to me and learned tons about who I am.
This transition from corporate life to running my own business was probably one of the hardest things I have done. But despite the challenges it felt deeply rewarding.
Today, 3 years into my new career as a Life & Career coach, I help people find their own journey through 1:1 coaching. Having trained as a Co-active coach and Firework career coach, I spend most of my days connecting with highly inspiring individuals who want to take charge of their lives.
I am Certified Professional Co-Active® Coach through The Coaches Training Institute (CTI), Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Licensed Firework Career Coach through the Careershifters.
Before becoming a coach, I have worked in the corporate industry in events management for over 6 years. I completed a Bachelor degree in Media-and Entertainment Management followed by a Masters degree in Social Entrepreneurship.
