We met in 2005 when both working for a global recruitment company. We kept in touch over the years and would often talk about our shared vision to support people on their career journey. In 2011 we joined forces and People Architects was formed. Our purpose is to equip people for careers that fit their personality, interests, skills and values.
As a qualified career coach and counsellor, I work holistically with you to ensure all aspects of your life are well considered when making career choices. Before starting People Architects, I worked in the recruitment industry, with roles in training and quality management. I have also been a face to face counsellor for A Girl Called Hope (an Auckland based residential programme for young women) and a phone counsellor for Youthline and Lifeline. I love assisting all types of clients on their career journey, but have a particular interest in supporting young adults to make study and work choices.
Alongside my role with People Architects, I also provide human resources support on a contract basis to businesses. I can provide guidance not only on how to search for jobs effectively, but also current knowledge on how employers make employment decisions (please visit my LinkedIn profile below for further information on my background and client recommendations).
Outside of work, I am a passionate foodie and caffeine addict and spend my days keeping my active and adventurous one year old son out of mischief!
Diploma in Counselling, Diploma in Career Guidance, Degree in Hospitality Management (HR Major), Qualified Myers Briggs Practitioner.
I’m passionate about helping people with their career journeys. Having studied career development and psychology, and with a background in recruitment and training, I’m equipped to work effectively with my clients. I understand first-hand how challenging it can be to look for a job, reconsider career or study options, and return to paid employment after a break (I did this after having my 2 girls). Using proven career tools I can help you see through the fog and gain perspective and clarity on where you are at, where you want to head, and how to practically move forward.
Whatever questions you may be asking yourself: What’s next? How do I start? I’ll tailor the sessions to meet your needs. I enjoy working with a diverse range of people. In addition to my role at People Architects, I’m the Personal Development Manager for North Harbour Rugby.
