My Brain Injury Recovery + Lessons in Resilience


#1 My brain injury showed me the enormous capacity of my brain that I didn't know existed.


#2 The realisation that no one was coming to help me... I only had me. 

#3 Slowing down to listen to my body was the most life changing gift that allowed me to accelerate my recovery journey.

#4 I had to unlearn what I knew in order to progress.

#5 I learnt to flip the script to maintain momentum and strengthen neural pathways.

#6 Mistakes had to be reframed to "opportunities" to make progress.

# 7 Re-building confidence through "exposure therapy" taught me how to harness my fears into powerful growth techniques.

# 8 The mind uses a filter system to construct our view of the world and I had to reprogram it so that it functionally served me to recover.

# 9 I had to turn up for myself + be my own cheer squad.

# 10 I leant that I am capable of much more than I could ever imagine.
(this goes for everyone)


With over 20 years experience as a teacher and facilitator, I am very passionate about learning and growth. Highly skilled in delivering content that caters for a range of neurodiversity and use a combination of interactive strategies that will accelerate understanding, increase memory retention and drive engagement.

The last 7 years, I have been immersed in research, study and training, of the brain and neural plasticity due to suffering a brain injury in 2016. My recovery journey was incredibly difficult + felt insurmountable more times than I can count. Despite losing my memory, my identity and what felt like my life, I experienced incredible insights into brain function, brain re-wiring, decoding behaviour, identifying patterns and an extraordinarily deep understanding of neurological and mindset transformation.


Proud to say that I am tertiary trained in over 32 frameworks and models across multiple disciplines of education and psychology - behavioural, educational, neurodiversity, cognition and learning.


Highly skilled in assessments and data collation, behavioural analysis, profiling, as well as trained in N.L.P., Meta Dynamics™, laser coaching, extended DISC™ and neuroplasticity (brain rewiring and transformation). 


My recovery journey involved unparalleled experiences in learning to rewire my brain and over coming harrowing adversity that only a few personally encounter.


I view my brain injury and recover, as one of the greatest gifts in my life.
