I’m a former high-flying corporate executive turned Happiness Hacker, internationally acclaimed speaker, author and educator 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 (fast), accumulated status, wealth and 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 with everything I’d yearned for yet feeling unfulfilled (first world problem right!).
When I stepped back from the noise of life and asked myself “what would happiness/success 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.
Today I teach my individuals and organisational leaders how to build their intentional adaptability muscle in order to inject more of what matters into each day and inspire others to do the same.
I’m humbled that my Hacking Happiness journey has enabled me to work with the likes of:
So, let me just say welcome! I’m so glad we’re connected, and I’m humbled that you’ve created a little space in your day to consider what Hacking Happiness might look like for you.
