Courageous Communicator | Speaker | MC

My passion is to motivate, connect and inspire others

 

I like to see myself as a bit of a game-changer, a trailblazing motivator and an occasional rule-breaker with a great back story.

My teenage years were ruled by long hours of dedication, chasing the long black line in swimming pools as a member of the Australian Swimming team. By the age of 19, I’d represented Australia for 5 years, and in 2000 I became a world champion, winning gold at the FINA World Cup.

After a few years getting my land legs back, I joined the NSW Police Force where I spent 13 years as a woman in blue. It was here where I honed my skills as an expert communicator, talking people off clifftops, and implementing diffusion strategies in situations where success sometimes meant the difference between life and death.

These years gifted me the ability and tactical knowledge to approach and solve the problems of lifes toughest customers. I learned that with the right mindset, skills and strategy, there is always a road to resolution.

It all begins, with starting the right conversation…

I’m a multipassionate entrepreneur, with a journey that’s led me down many paths…

After mediating a series of sobering incidents involving young people and social media, I knew more needed to be done to combat the mounting problems they faced in the online world.

Being a bit of an action jackson, I co-founded a multiple award-winning mental health promotion charity called REELISE. REELise is a platform that encourages kids to express themselves through pocket film making, using their mobile phones to tell stories of self expression and empowerment, rather than using it as a tool for bullying.

Stepping away from the thin blue line, I’m now the Executive Director of Australia’s leading social media and cyber safety education organisation, ySafe. Each year ySafe educates over 300,000 students, as well as parents and teachers on ways they can empower themselves with skills and knowledge, to manage their responses to the online world.

I present regularly at events, conferences, schools and workplaces as a keynote speaker with themes focused on:
• Courageous Conversations, and developing your #couragecrew
• Digital Wellbeing and Online Safety
• Developing a Leadership Mindset
