I’m a former executive turned Happiness Hacker, who was voted one of the most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia.
I started out as a country girl. At 18 I moved to the city to pursue the ideal of success I’d been told would make me happy. I secured the dream corporate position in a global giant, climbed the ladder, and lived what appeared to be the perfect life from the outside looking in. That all worked well until at the age of 39 I found myself feeling burnt out and soulless.
When I stepped back and asked myself “what would happiness look like on my terms?” I quickly realised that what I had created was someone else’s definition of success, not my own.
I leaned into uncertainty and turned my whole life upside down in the pursuit of happiness. Within a seven-month period I left a 16-year career as an executive (at the top of my game), relocated my family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship and started my own purpose driven company HackingHappy.co.
With over 20 years’ experience in enabling adaptability my life’s work is dedicated to teaching people to navigate uncertainty from a place of intention and balance rather than from a place of fear.
I work with governments, corporations and educators to build a more intentionally adaptable society.
