What is your role and what does it involve?
Bluearth Coach – working in schools with students and teachers in the Bluearth approach.
What do you love about your role and working for Bluearth?
I love working with kids. I love the energy and joy they bring. I also really value being playful and childlike as an adult. I think it’s important to stay young as you get older. I feel strongly about our vision and feel privileged that I have a job that has real meaning and purpose in an area that I’m passionate about. I also really love the incidental movement involved with the job… moving in a variety of different ways is priceless!
Can you tell us a bit about your background/training and how you started your journey at Bluearth?
I studied Coaching and Human Movement at University. I was involved with Bluearth at the beginning back in 2002. My interest/expertise has always been in movement, coaching, psychology and wellbeing. Bluearth has been a great fit for me.
- Favourite sport: Surf obsessed. I played lots of football, baseball, skating, tennis etc. over the years.
- Favourite animal: Kangaroo hands down. What other animal moves like that? I love the tail and how it counterbalances it’s movement.
- Best piece of advice: “Nothing worth having comes easy”
