Get to know me

I’ve been there, where you are right now. I made myself promises, called myself names and trivialised self-care as an indulgence.

As an ultra-endurance athlete with Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport or RED-S, I learned the hard way what happens when you don’t have balance.

Like athletes sidelined with injuries, leaders in business face burnout if there isn’t enough balance. 

From my dark days on crutches, I learned valuable life lessons about performance, leadership, life and sport which became the founding principles of Spring Coaching.  

I built on these principles by studying top performers in business and sport, gaining qualifications and experience in:

  • Psychology
  • Leadership coaching
  • Athletes’ performance training
  • Nutrition
  • Sleep, stress and recovery
  • Belief change.

Naturally curious, especially when it comes to people I’m motivated by helping others and making a difference.

I care deeply about people and believe in the importance of balance for a peak performance mindset and a long, healthy and happy life.

As an endurance runner (countless half marathons, 3 full and 1 ultra) food is a key part of my life. I’m a total foodie and love thinking and talking about food, and of course eating it too.

As a lifelong learner, I am an avid reader (murder mystery), and traveller (Iceland and Cuba are some of my favourites).

I am what you call an active relaxer, choosing to run on holidays over lying on a beach. 

I am also a cool aunt and live with my favourite human Kelvin and the world’s most wonderful schnauzer,  Bachly in the gorgeous region of Wairarapa.

I became a coach after over 20 years as a performance and planning advisor in the business world, and as an endurance athlete, I know the stress of balancing deadlines and demands.

My approach is different. It’s holistic, tailored, systematic, sustainable and it works. 

If you would like to know more about what I do I would love to hear from you.
