My Story

Have you ever felt like a failed extrovert? I know I did. That is, until I began the journey to understanding my own personality type. It was an ‘aha’ moment when I recognised that I am who I am, because I am an introvert, and everything I have achieved to date is due to my personality not despite it. Introverts have incredible innate strengths, but we often don’t recognise them. In fact 66% of people don’t know their strengths.

My career began in the hospitality industry and I spent a number of years in HR support roles while living in the US. I always wanted to have my own business and in 2008 opened a Montessori school here in Cork. That business challenged me in every way, but in every problem there is a learning opportunity.

In 2019 I formerly established Inside Strategies where I not only provide people and culture support to small businesses but specialise in the area of introversion. I am passionate about empowering other introverts to follow their dreams and achieve their own potential by fully harnessing their personality strengths.
