My Journey to an Empowered, Alcohol-Free Life
Nearly two decades ago, in May 2004, my life appeared deceptively stable. On the surface, I had it all – a steady job, a home, a vibrant social life, and regular participation in sports. Yet, this semblance of balance was sustained by my dependence on alcohol, masking deep internal battles. My story isn't just about overcoming addiction; it's about discovering a fulfilling, joyful life beyond it.
Read on to learn how you can do the same.

Transforming Struggle into Strength

The realization hit hard 19 years ago: willpower and grit weren’t enough to keep me sober. I had grappled with that approach too many times, only to find myself back at square one. I needed a sustainable, meaningful way to rebuild my life, not just a temporary fix. That’s when my journey of self-discovery and transformation began.

My quest wasn’t just about stopping alcohol; it was about thriving without it. I embraced an array of strategies and coping mechanisms, ensuring that living alcohol-free didn’t mean missing out on life’s joys and experiences. It meant rediscovering them in a more vibrant, authentic way.

A Life of Purpose and Passion

After regaining control of my life, I ventured into a dynamic and challenging career as an executive assistant. This role took me across oceans, from the corporate environments of New Zealand back to Brisbane, where I continued my career journey.

Each step, each new experience, fortified my commitment to an alcohol-free life and solidified my understanding of its incredible value.

As I reflect on my path, from struggling with alcohol to empowering others to find their freedom, I am reminded of how precious and fragile the important things in life are. It’s not just about losing what we have; it’s about nurturing and protecting it with every choice we make.

My life today, filled with purpose, clarity, and connection, starkly contrasts with those days clouded by alcohol. And I am here to share with you, through my personal journey and professional expertise, how living alcohol-free isn’t just about giving something up. It’s about gaining so much more.

"Find your Joy!"

Educating and Inspiring Others

For the past decade, I've had the immense privilege of sharing my knowledge and strategies for relapse prevention at one of Australia's foremost residential rehabilitation centers. Helping others break free from the chains of alcohol addiction and guiding them towards reclaiming their lives is profoundly rewarding. Witnessing the transformation of individuals who, like me, once felt hopelessly tethered to alcohol, underscores the possibility of lasting change.
