Find the path to your story





Throughout my career, the purpose has always been to bring clarity, purpose and energy for change to my clients. From teaching to training; presenting to facilitating; coaching & mentoring, this goal has never wavered. Having a clear memorable personal brand identity attracted opportunities I hadn’t even thought of.

Work With Me

What do you need right now?
Let me guide you through a process.


When we shine a light on the past we see and understand our present and can change our future. You will see roadblocks and flip them. You will discover hidden strengths at the intersections. You will rewrite your chapters.


Those who came before left imprints on our DNA. By looking below the surface, naming the evidence, we release the past and enter the future with intention and freedom to celebrate who you are shaped by where you came from.


Find and use your true voice. Learn to recognise what it sounds and feels like and be comfortable hearing it in order to take the next step. The people you are meant to serve are waiting to hear and experience your voice.


Write your own Identity Story. It is valuable to your audience. They want to hear it. When you know your story and identify the role the different characters played in shaping who you are, a world of opportunity opens. You become visible.


We all have a path to follow, and each path is unique. Together we will look back along the path explore the side road and alleys making your brand special. Your purpose is inside your story waiting to be met.


Critical to connecting with identity, is understanding the origins of how you came to be. Challenges we face didn’t start with us. When we recognise ourselves and value the distinct overlap of experiences only we had, we can find confidence in being our true selves in the world.

YNot Book

It’s time to say YNot!

Thank you to Shar Moore for inviting me to contribute a chapter to
Y Not!

The vision for this book, is the hope that it will give readers the confidence to back themselves, step up in times of uncertainty and live life boldly. Sometimes we just need to say… YNot!

A deep dive into your motivations and ambitions.

Michelle has an uncanny way of disarming any anxiety one might have about sitting down with a mentor. She is a great listener and before you know it – over a ubiquitous cup of coffee – you find yourself deep diving into the motivations that really drive your career decisions. Her style and methodology is not for those who simply want to “chin wag” for an hour. It is strategic and goal driven, relying on evidence-based executive research, scholarly monographs and straight talk which can at times have you in rarely-visited emotional and psychological terrain. The outcome is a distilled and directed career path. She’s a relaxed and insightful mentor to guide you and send you on your way.


Property Professional and People leader (2021)

From the first meeting, Michelle’s style puts you at ease and inspires trust. She is a great listener, yet challenges your thinking and delivers advice with a mix of theory and practical example that make it simple and easy to accept, understand and act upon.

After a couple of calls with Michelle, I have gained the most wonderful clarity about my brand, and most importantly, how it intersects with my purpose! Seriously, I jump out of bed eager to work and serve my purpose – all in one beautiful, sweeping alignment.
Michelle’s knowledge in this area is second to none – I actually have had many mentors in my business life and have never experienced anything like this.
I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who needs to find their flow and reach higher levels.


Co-Founder Ruffle Mentoring (2022)

Michelle has coached me through four significant senior positions, in three different fields. Michelle is an inspirational leader with exceptional communication skills. She has a great ability to work with people to uncover possibilities that enables them to reach their full potential.I look forward to my next chapter with Michelle and would highly recommend her to any executive contemplating their next chapter.
