Be gentle... with yourself, with others + with the planet.

Be gentle… with yourself, with others + with the planet.

After a 2 year battle with stage 4 cancer in my 20’s, I reallllly love exploring ways to live, and work, gently. And I love helping others, particularly the next generation, to take care of themselves, feel awesome, find their purpose, save the world, etc! To do that, they need great mentors in their life. 

I’m the Founder of teen academy, Shine From Within, a published author (Shine From Within; a teen girl’s guide to life) and love to hold space for teens to realise they are perfect, just as they are. Where I think I have the biggest impact though is in supporting adults all over the world to embrace their inner ‘youth mentor’ and create incredible youth programs and businesses they love through our award-winning Youth Mentor Training. And I do my best to live and work gently [e.g. from being vegan, sometimes modelling for eco-friendly brands, living off the grid in a shipping container one year with my partner and our fur baby, and co-hosting an annual Gentle Business Mastermind with my friends Nic and Nai]!

Let’s have some fun together….
