My Story

How I went from frustrated employee to best-selling international singer, speaker and award-winning voice coach.

I wasn't a born singer. 

I grew up wanting to be a dancer. I always put on 'shows' for my school friends and family at home. Although there were singers in my family, I wasn't naturally drawn to singing. Dancing always came first. 

To cut a very long story short,  started singing lessons in 1999 when I was 23, a Christmas present from my first husband.

I spent most of my early years as a singer performing free gigs, learning my craft, taking singing courses and studying music theory. I took Grades before studying for a degree, RSL Awards Teaching Licentiate and Post-Graduate Certificate in Education.

I first started teaching at The Square, a popular venue Essex, in 2004, teaching teenagers from the local area singing and performance skills. 

In more recent years I have sold number one albums and performed in over thirty countries, sharing stages with people I looked up to as musicians growing up - many of whom I now count among my friends.

Having taught singers for years, professionals from other industries started contacting me to help them improve and project their speaking voices.

Six years later, I have now helped dozens of professionals and entrepreneurs to use their voices to create more impact and maximise profits. 

After researching and trialling the many different voice techniques, singing styles and teaching methods, I have created a fun and simple four-part system that anyone can use to achieve their dreams and goals. 

I am fortunate to have been able to spend most of my life doing what I love - performing, and helping hundreds of singers, speakers and teachers to reach their potential. Will you be next?

To your success!
