Kay left home when she was 17 to study nursing at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children in Sydney. After a successful career in nursing, including attaining her Midwifery and Intensive Care Certificates, Kay then focused her career on teaching – both 1-1 clinical and classroom where she taught and mentored aspiring nurses. Kay also worked as a drug and alcohol counsellor in a women’s residential program for 18 months. Kay then moved to the US for eight years where she studied counselling and psychotherapy before returning to Australia. For the next 10 years Kay lectured within the University sector, before a car accident meant that she could no longer fulfil that role. Today Kay lives on the Gold Coast where she mentors and coaches female small-business owners and entrepreneurs. Kay’s eclectic style helps to ensure that issues are addressed utilising coaching, dream analysis and intuition! Kay also runs workshops and webinars and loves presenting and speaking at conferences, seminars and training.
