I am truly living my dream life.

Every single morning I wake up and feel extremely grateful for my life. I've worked hard and taken big risks to live this magical (and carefully designed) life I'm living in beautiful Byron Bay. 

I meditate in the morning, I work from home in my beautiful office, I walk my kids to school, I swim in the ocean, I eat healthy food and move my body every single day. 

I have several thriving businesses I LOVE. 

NONE OF IT is by accident; IT's design.

My passion is running female-focussed businesses. I am the founder of both Barre Body, Australia's first boutique barre brand, and Bende, a Pilates studio in Byron Bay. The lines between my business and personal life are very blurred because I absolutely LOVE my work and I treat the people I work with as family. Running these businesses is a dream come true. 

My superpower is helping women shine. I love to nurture the women around me to thrive and succeed and work & live with passion and empathy. And a healthy dose of fun! 

I have a Bachelor of Business, majoring in marketing, and prior to creating Barre Body, I worked for 10 years for various brands in Australia, including Ford, Telstra, Wagamama, Bonds and Oroton, before leaving the corporate world to pursue my true passion: wellness. My life has evolved in the decade since; a husband, two beautiful children, four businesses, more pets than I can manage, and a sea change to Mullumbimby, near Byron Bay. One thing hasn't changed; I am passionate, powerful woman, relentlessly pursuing my dreams.


Love over fear. Making hearts sing. Drinking lots of water. Freckles and smile lines. Kindness. Taking big risks.


Late nights. Mean people. Carrying heavy things. Anchovies. Hustle for the sake of hustle. 


With my beautiful family. Working hard (and loving every minute). Swimming in the ocean. Reading. 

daily rituals

Morning meditation, cuddles with my (mostly) adorable children + lovely (mostly) hubby, good food, moving my body, and simple skincare rituals.
