I am a mother first

January 23, 2023

I'm jess!

Life and leadership coach for women, mental health maven and soul guide.

I support women to do LESS people-pleasing, perfectionism and over-working ... and experience MORE ease, joy, vitality and confidence.

I am a devoted mother, partner and homemaker first.

A coach and business owner a distant second.

And my schedule and weekly rhythms clearly reflect that.

I LOVE my job. As in, pinch-me-I-cannot-believe-I-get-to-do-this love it.

And I am beyond clear that my career will always play second fiddle to my most precious relationships and homemaking responsibilities.

And all of my decisions stem from that.

And BECAUSE (not in spite) of that clarity, my business and impact continues to expand.

This is true for every woman I know who lives and works in alignment with her deepest values and priorities.

Because a woman who is clear on what she is and is not available for

Who prioritises easily and uses her resources wisely

Who embraces JOMO when it comes to opportunities that take her away from what really matters to her

Is a woman in her full power.

And a woman in her full power is an unstoppable force of wisdom and influence in her chosen workplace or industry.

I'm Jess, mind whisperer, mama & ocean lover

I'm a former lawyer turned women’s leadership and life coach. 

I guide women who have created their success largely through driving, pushing and controlling, to reconnect with their intuition, vitality and radiance.
