Where are you from, and where do you currently live?
If your friends were to describe you, what would they say?
Compassionate, creative, independent
What is your favourite quote or saying?
“My mission in life is to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some humour and some style” (with thanks to Maya Angelou)
What would you say you are most proud of?
I am most proud of setting up my own business. After working in the corporate space for many years, I decided to follow my heart and create a business that combined my passion for people development and working with horses.
Bringing people and horses together in a creative coaching space has allowed others to discover their personal power and unlimited potential.
I am humbled by the power of the horses as they gently teach us about life and leadership.
In addition to working with delegates from Johannesburg and Cape Town, we have had the honour to share our passion with international delegates attending workshops
in New York, Sao Paulo, Berlin, Amsterdam and New Delhi.
What advice would you give your younger self?
To never lose hope. Even in one’s darkest moments, to look up at the stars.
What is a goal or dream you still wish to accomplish?
I write poetry in my spare time. I love the power, the mystery and the magic of the written word. I would love to be courageous enough to compile an anthology of my musings.
What are your thoughts on ageing?
Ageing creeps up on you when you’re not looking! You think you have all the time in the world, and then one day you wake up and you’re 50!
I am learning to embrace my 50s as a time of personal reflection and discovery.
What did you enjoy most about The 50 Over 50 Women’s Portrait Campaign? And how did the experience leave you feeling?
The day with Monica allowed me to be comfortably vulnerable! As a coach and facilitator, I am always “on show”.
This experience invited me to lean into the moment and not be afraid of allowing myself to own my space – boldly and lovingly.
