My uniqueness is in my natural coaching style and ease which empowers you to trust in the process, therefore enabling you to let go and go with the flow. 

I trust in my intuition, education and ability to know what to say and when to say it. My style is not prescriptive or cookie-cutter, but is an organic approach that is flexible. I actively listen to understand the essence of your communication without judgment, and move you forward, with awareness, towards what you want. Once you know what you want and believe in it, it is about trusting in the process and consciously focusing your thinking on it.

I will at all times respect your perceptions, your learning style and personal being while supporting you. Demonstrating absolute integrity, honesty and sincerity, always being present to you and employing a style that is open and flexible.



My vision: inspiring confidence and conscious thinking.

My mission: to inspire you to align your personal and business vision with your values, to consciously create the lifestyle you want.

My core values: inspiration, integrity, intuition, connection, whanau whenua, wairua.

My coaching career spans 20 years and I have been in business for 30 years. I owned and operated my own retail stores in the fashion industry in Wellington and Auckland, NZ. Parallel to the operation of the stores I coached individuals and mentored start up businesses. After 15 years I sold my retail stores and travelled extensively for 5 years, basing myself in Mallorca, Spain where my son was born. Now I am living on the beautiful Matakana coast in New Zealand.

I value quality lifestyle, being present to the small things, quality time with my son, travel and experiences. I love retail and fashion and I am fortunate to be able to incorporate that into my coaching business. I have developed MANA coaching for business and lifestyle coaching. THE RETAIL COACH and FASHION RETAIL COACH are my coaching programmes and training workshops that nurtures my passion for these industries.

I have also coached across many other industries; including professional sports people, yachting, entertainment, arts, creative and health.

I have coached clients from all around the world: Italy, Russia, Spain, France, Australia and New Zealand. It's inspiring connecting with people from all walks of lives and cultures.

The courses that I have attended, combined with my life experiences, have given me the knowledge, empathy and trust in my ability to coach others.



Professionally I have gained extensive experience in business including being a member of an exclusive business networking group which enabled me to meet people such as Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, Michael Hill and Eric Rush.



My fashion retail business, Unity, was an award winning retail store in Wellington and Auckland for 15 years which I systemised, franchised and sold.

I was a judge for Mercedes Young Designer of the Year Award. Attended NZFW, MAFW and NYFW as a buyer for international and NZ high fashion brands.

I was Regional Retail Manager for 2 years, NZ Fashion Designer, Trelise Cooper.
