Hi I’m Carrie…

My passion and inspiration are people.

Being able to support, develop and encourage personal growth to help people unlock and achieve all they want in both their career and personal life is where I am at my happiest.

“My purpose on a personal and professional level, combining my formal qualifications and life experience, is to present ideas, stories, motivation and frameworks based on not just surviving in life, though actually THRIVING”.

The Early Days

My career spanning 28+ years has seen me transition through three distinct phases, where one of my core themes and skills has been in developing others. Starting my professional career as a trained dancer and performer, travelling to many parts of the world and within Australia over a 14 year span, performing for a variety of production companies. In between travel, I became a fully accredited F.A.T.D teacher of dance, and enjoyed many years of teaching, coaching and mentoring students moving into the professional realm

The Middle

My love of lifelong learning didn’t stop there, I went back to study event management. This initiated my next career transition working for 14 years at Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. I joined as a Functions Coordinator, and was rapidly promoted through a series of increasingly responsible leadership positions based on strong financial, operating, and team leadership performance. This led ultimately to working in a senior position, responsible for delivering large scale transformational projects targeted on customer satisfaction and employee engagement, working with employees on ever evolving personal, career and organisational growth.

The Present

Part of my “thriving” is ensuring I have a balance in life. My husband and I embarked on a new journey just over 3 years ago, which saw us move from our Sydney apartment, relocating to the NSW South Coast and opening our boutique accommodation business, Tilba Coastal Retreat. Part of our recent business growth has been launching our new Wellness Retreats. We have designed a unique and contemporary program, providing you the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and reenergise. The Wellness Retreats combine my passion for people, self-development, healthy living and the love of this region.

I play an active role in the community, sitting on the executive committee as Treasurer for The Tilba District Chamber of Commerce.

“Our sea/tree change has allowed me the time and energy to support you in your life and career goals”
