GET YOUR MOJO BACK!
I am an ordinary kiwi girl. Brought up with loving and hardworking parents in South Canterbury and West Otago.
Discouraged by high school I left early to work in a bank, got married, got a mortgage and had three children.
All perfectly fine and dandy until it was time to get back into the workforce. I had no qualifications to speak of so could only get part-time low paid jobs. These included being a cleaner, a teacher aid, a timber yard worker, an insurance cold caller, a relief milker of cows and a flooring salesperson. Not to mention all the volunteer roles I held in my community.
Now, as the eldest of four and a handy Girl Guide, I was well capable of working hard and being inventive. No one would pay me what I thought I was worth.
So at age 37, I decided to go back to school and get a teaching degree. With three teenagers and a husband left to hold the fort at home, it was a busy time. There were ups and downs for sure. Not being particularly academic when I was at school the first time around you can imagine the huge effort it took to get back into study mode.
I am a registered
Life Coach with
skills to burn!
Here I am eleven years on. I’ve taught in both primary and secondary schools. I love working with kids, they are hard work and rewarding all at once.
Over this time I have also worked on my public speaking skills by attending Toastmasters. I have competed at national speech contests several times and won the national impromptu speech title in 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of being invited back to be a judge.
To be fair life has been pretty good, but I needed a change. After working with a life coach I decided to attend a Life Coach course for myself.
So, here I am a registered Life Coach with skills to burn. It is a privilege to work with people who are looking for more in their world. Helping others discover their own strengths and empower their future is satisfying. I love it!
