Tell us about yourself in three words.. 

Resilient, Empathic & Loyal

What or who has been your greatest influence in business and why?

Gwyneth Paltrow – often in business we can be faced with obstacles or situations where we feel the path we are on doesn’t sit authentically with us anymore. It can be incredibly tough to change careers from something you are great at, to pursue something that simply lights you up. I love how Gwyneth moved away from what was essentially ‘easy’ for her and pushed herself into a completely new pathway, a new career that felt authentic to her and pushed the boundaries in the health and wellness space coming from a non-judgement and curious space. GOOP is incredible, and something I often use to educate myself within the health and wellness world.

Who are some of your female role models?

In Life, My Mother, my friends, and my stepdaughters in life. In Business, Pip Edwards – Pip herself is a brand and I love everything she represents. I look up to her a lot in business.

What would you say if your greatest professional accomplishment to date?

Opening up Slow House Bondi, in the middle of a pandemic on my own and ending up as one of Sydney’s top 5 day spas in our first 12 months.

What's the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to our readers?

Surround yourself with good people, people who want to see you succeed and always remain humble & kind to everyone you do business with.

How do you envision the future of women-led businesses for the next generation to come?

We are raising women these days to be stronger and more resilient than ever before, and if the recent hype around our Matilda’s team – I know the future of women leaders is bright!

What do you want to achieve next?

I would love to see an expansion in the Slow House Brand…maybe soon!
