As a business executive in my 20s and 30s, I started, bought and grew businesses that delivered billions of dollars of new revenue to Fortune 500 companies including PepsiCo, Sainsbury's, Reed Elsevier, Unilever, and The Royal Mail in Australia, The UK and The USA.

Even though I was at the top of my game my career success came at a cost.

In 2013, after neglecting my health, I suffered a $5billion burnout, adrenal failure and depression.

The ‘toxic three’ put a hard stop to my career and life aspirations.

Taking time out to recover, re-evaluate and rebuild, I began a holistic journey of healing that would transform my work and life to enable sustainable high performance.

I tried everything that I had been told would be good for me that I was too lazy or busy to try.

Creating new habits like making my bed, drinking a green smoothie and taking my first yoga class led to some bigger results over time.

In the space of 18 months, I became a World Sailing Champion and wiped six years off my bio age. I saw a gap to support executive women who are making the decision to stay in their corporate job or search for greener pastures. So I reinvented my career and started Fully Expressed to support executive women to not wait till retirement to all in love with Mondays and become financially independent.

This study is called The Global Executive Wellbeing Report. It captured the attention of the world’s largest business publisher, Wiley, who commissioned me to publish my findings alongside my own comeback story in a book called Smart Girls Screw Up Too -The no-nonsense guide to creating the life you want.

It’s now the number one personal leadership book in Australia, outselling the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, Richard Branson and Tony Robbins and has debuted on Audible and in the UK in all major bookstores including Waterstones and Foyles.
