What do you love about coaching?
Everything! From the shift I see in people’s lives, both personally and professionally, to the way it makes me feel.
How do you unwind?
I run with my border collie whilst listening to audible, cycle, go to the gym and laugh a lot. I’m a proud mum of our 19-year old and 13-years old twins and have a wonderful husband. I got lucky the second time round! I love to sing and I’m the life and soul of a party. I work hard at being present and grounded.
What inspired you to work with CTG?
I’m based in the North East of England with a strong Geordie accent. I reached out to Brad via Linked In, knowing how successful CTG Group was, when my other business literally stopped after 11 years, overnight, as a result of the pandemic. He invested his time to give me advice and support about flipping my coaching business (my passion) into a full-time venture that would replace lost revenues and provide a sustainable income moving forward. I didn’t expect Brad to ask me to coach him and test out my skills, but he did! He really does put the work in when selecting his Associates. I only called him for advice and here I am, to enable change and coach for CTG!
