Hi there, I’m Cat and I’m SO glad you’re here!
My passion is to see women living fulfilled, joyful and purposeful lives – especially at midlife which can be such a tumultuous season. Through my speaking, writing and coaching I desire to provide you with the encouragement, motivation and tools to enable you to truly ROCK your midlife!
As a life-long creative who penned their first earth-shattering novel “The Purple Mouse” at the tender age of five, I’ve written all my life on the side, while recording and performing in front of thousands as a professional musician. I have also worked with people of all ages in varying roles including as a high school teacher, a music director, a conductor, a lecturer, a principal of a tertiary training college and in my most important role – as a wife of nearly 30 years and a mother or two ( which included six years of homeschooling in their high school years.)
Once my youngest child headed off to university, I embarked on my own Midlife Reinvention. At age 44, I went back to school alongside classmates younger than my own children and graduated as a qualified personal trainer as top of my class. I then spent the following seven year working on the gym floor in South Auckland, encouraging and challenging men and women to change their lives too – both IN and OUTSIDE the gym.
Over the years though, I found that many of my female clients were looking down the barrel of midlife, and realising that so many of them were entering this season of life in trepidation, I decided to focus my unique brand of tough-love coaching on encouraging and challenging women over 40 to embrace this season and live their best lives ever.
I wrote my first motivational book “Girl, Get Over Yourself and Get in the Game!,“ set up the free ROCKING MIDLIFE group for support and friendship with thousands of midlife girls from all over the world joining, added Life Coaching to my skill set and now offer speaking events, books and coaching for women who truly want to ROCK their Midlife.
