With over 30 years in the Insurance industry as a senior General and Medical Indemnity leader, my key roles have seen me work with intermediary, direct and government stakeholders. Roles have spanned across sales and distribution, project and change management, risk management and regulatory compliance.
My vast experience provides the confidence to work with businesses such as yours consulting, facilitating and executing corporate strategies, delivering significant change within regulatory environments and planning for market growth. I understand organisations' competing priorities and am adept at managing these in a pragmatic manner.
Working closely with senior leaders and stakeholders, be prepared for me to challenge assumptions and encourage thinking outside of the box. As your trusted adviser, together, we will deal with multiple stakeholders to solve complex problems, ensuring honesty and integrity when influencing culture and delivering promises to your board, teams, clients and all other stakeholders.
Whilst I can mention many lifetime career highlights, my claim to fame has been leading the Australian division on my last employers' response to the Financial Services Royal Commission.

Holistic Counsellor | End of Life Doula
After being in the insurance industry for 13 years, we established KIA Consulting in 2008. My role focused on intercultural business consulting. Bridging the cultural gap between Australia and South Korea, I have worked with government, small and large businesses creating tailor made programs for Australians to live and study in South Korea, Cultural Diversity Workshops for Australian businesses dealing with South Korea, presenting Australian culture to South Korean Homestay Students, travel & projection management of tours and trade missions into South Korea, buyer events and many more wonderful bi-lateral projects with both countries.
In 2018, life changed when I was diagnosed with cancer. Consulting and travel was put on hold as I focused on my treatment for twelve months. This incredible journey led me as an Ambassador for Peter MacCallum Cancer Hospital as well as doing media work with pharmaceutical & medical research companies and a top leading Australian hematologist. Speaking, blogging, writing and now mentoring and communicating with other Cancer Warriors, families, and businesses who are touched by cancer has become a new direction in my career. My event management skills are put to organising fundraising events for cancer warriors and those affected by cancer.
Now, I am what you can call a Multi-Facet Consultant. My twist of fate came to a calling of assisting people in changing their own lives around as they live with a chronic illness. My practice, Soulful Heart, has been online over Covid lockdowns (2020-2021). My personal work with individuals continues however, we are now open to businesses as people return to the office away from home, however, some with hesitation, phobias and fears.
How is Counselling different to a Psychologist?
A psychologist is a medical practitioner who work with their patients on finding out the why, working through the "why". A Counsellor is a non medical role. Our job is to provide the tools to move forward mentally, physcially & spiritually in any area the need is required. A Holistic Counsellor works with the mind, body and soul which includes meditation and chair yoga.
