Bio :
I’m currently in Brighton, supporting amazing women to thrive. I’m delighted to be involved in The Skills Army, with such an empowering, important mission.
What's your biggest accomplishment? :
Supporting more than 1,000 women to thrive over the past decade has been such a privilege. As the founder of The Live Powerfully Programme to see these women move, sometimes from near to burnout, to become more resilient, happier, healthier and truly confident so they can flourish in all areas of their life is amazing! I have recently co-authored a book on Energy and have also been awarded The Most Empowering Life Coach 2020 by GHP publications for my work supporting and championing women – I’m proud of these too.
What advice would i give others looking for a job in lighting design? :
Mindset in these situations is key. Work on a positive self-narrative and rid yourself of imposter syndrome. Take criticism or rejection as useful feedback and learn to grow and learn from these experiences. And make sure your diarise time to relax sometimes.
