About me
My work dives deep into social justice and personal sovereignty:

1. I disrupt spiritual and entrepreneurial spaces with my#dearselfstyledguru letters calling out for better representation of diversity.

2. I compiled the Reading and Resources for Activists list, an essential resource of social justice writings, tools, education and programs.

3. I teach women and girls Gutsy Leadership, Gutsy Activism, conscious business strategy consulting and to be the leaders of their own lives. 

I have a wealth of knowledge and learning gained from trauma, transition and personal transformation.

I am a gutsy leader, artist, speaker, teacher, sacred activist and writer.

How I got here
I started Gutsy Girl 6 years ago as a handmade hobby pursuit where I created mixed media art and eco-friendly recycled sterling silver jewellery. This evolved into workshops and more. Over the past 3 years I have guided & taught more than 200 women and girls through my online, in person workshops, guest speaking & teaching. My Gutsy Mantras empowering inspiration cards are now in their second printing.

My 2018-19 projects include:
1. Creating a podcast for patrons.
2. Self-publishing the Gutsy Magic intuitive oracle deck.
3. Self-publishing the Creative Fire Playbook (working title).

5. Self-publishing an inspirational book of soul musings and art.
6. The book, Once More With Feeling is also in work. It’s part memoir / part journal / part manifesto. ETA 2019.


By becoming a member of my exclusive community here on Patreon, you might receive a copy of one of my books or the oracle deck when published!

You can find me on Instagram where I share some of my musings on daily life, art and activism.

A bit deeper
I found myself through courageously taking the leap to lead and teach. I am a work in progress. My personal obstacles of racism, bullying, physical and sexual assault, anxiety, depression and PTSD are lived experiences which have made me more resilient, gutsy and confident to share my stories. I want to end the stigma associated with mental illness. We are whole people no matter what breaks or cracks us open. I am a dot connector. I see how my stories have helped others and I see how I moved forward in spite of the personal challenges.

I am here to help more and more people move forward and beyond their pain, their trauma and their stories. Every time I speak my truth I feel this simmering, this boiling beneath the skin and in my belly like a volcano about to rupture. It feels both euphoric and vulnerable.

This is how I know that I am in my power. I will not be quiet. I will not be silent. I will not yield. I will not.

If there’s anything you should know about me it’s this:
I am a biracial first generation Australian woman and a Mother. I believe in social justice, compassion and activism. I am moving forward from a 3 year period in my life which has been very challenging. I was diagnosed with PTSD following workplace bullying. I almost lost hope and my zest for life. I had an existential crisis and questioned my being-ness. It is so difficult to speak up after Trauma. I should know. I was silent about sexual assault I experienced in my teens until my late 30’s.

I’m following my dream to publish my book to take the silencer off my story. Through my art and writing, I’ve found that telling my stories is the salve. I want to document and remember every minute of my rising from all that I’ve faced and I want to help others live gutsy lives too.

I believe that we all have a role to play in this world and as one of my role models, Dr Jane Goodall says, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
