I help tell stories that get seen around the world…



Born in Singapore and moved to Sydney Australia at just 12 months old, JC has always been a ‘traveller’. She had a major setback as a child that would later become a driving force to help others both in personal life and in business. Being an adaptable and creative quick thinker, made her fast on her feet. She was always looking after people and animals and became very resourceful. JC would love to solve problems as a ‘littler helper’, giving ideas constantly. Her entrepreneurial mind was constantly in ‘go’ mode. She filled pages and pages of books with thoughts and ideas. She was always ‘selling’ something, solving problems. Hand making butter into different shapes to sell, picking flowers to make bouquets and ‘perfume’, ( wasn’t great perfume but it was the thought that counted, right?) bartered and traded services amongst friends, neighbours and family. ( the start of a career in sales perhaps?)



Age 16, JC’s first job was in a bookstore in QLD. Dusting the shelves wasn’t her thing, she loved to find out what people liked so she could recommend books to them. So, using her creativity, and gift of the gab more likely, she moved to ‘visual merchandising’. This paid off as she managed to proactively sell the most books in the store. Naturally competitive and wanting the best results, she had many successes. Studying Hospitality so she could travel worldwide and always have a ‘job’. She moved to the UK at age 22 after a breakup with her, let’s affectionately call him a d*head boyfriend. Getting through this would later turn into part of her business, Breakup Brilliant -Breakaways. She landed a position as Events & Marketing Director for a brewing company in Covent Garden London, Dublin and Bray – Ireland. At the same time, she worked as a Massage Therapist and Fitness Trainer, also continuing to study human behaviour. She knew she really wanted to support people to be fit and healthy in both body and mind.

JC was working as Front House Manager at a Michelin star restaurant in London when Jamie Oliver’s recruiter ‘headhunted’ her. The opportunity was almost too good to be true but in her heart, she wanted to move out of hospitality and into health and fitness. Quitting her job and taking a leap of faith she met with the Manager of Holmes Place Notting Hill Health Club. She gave her a chance, and within a few weeks JC was the top salesperson in the club
When she met her future husband, they decided to move to Melbourne Australia. She went straight into a job in a fitness centre that hadn’t been built yet and was selling memberships from a demount able ‘office’ next to the ‘gym’ (a concrete slab) and off a plan. In her first month, she had won membership salesperson of the month Australia wide and would soon be promoted to Sales Manager. She had told the manager at her interview that when they open a centre in her home suburb, she would start her massage business in it. As opportunity would have it, a sick staff member meant she was on reception the day the owner of the new gym came in. She promptly gave him a tour and told him of her plan to run a massage business at his new club. Hands to Heal Wellness Centre was born. Working smarter, she hired two other therapists to make sure the business was open 7 days a week.
The opportunity came up to take over a small business: Melbourne Natural Wellness in the city. Still in her early 20’s, this was a huge deal. She merged the clients from Hands, took out a loan and grew MNW from debt to seven figures, and added a second lease for a yoga, Pilates and workshop studio space next door. A team of over 25 grew, won clinic of the year award and JC was awarded Lord Mayor’s commendation for business. After 17 years and 4 nominations for the Telstra Businesswoman of the Year Award, it was time for more variety. Two offshoots MNW were Ultimate Corporate Wellness, to service businesses in their workplaces and online, and a business coaching business Wellbusi – mainly for wellness practitioners, which soon spread to many small business categories.


“Come as you are & be who you want to be, and be with.”
“Come with the business you have & have the business you want.” 
At the time, JC was finding it challenging to run a business she loved and a life she loved. One or both suffered, (especially her relationships) and neither were ‘well’. Wellbusi started as a business coaching business. (Well – Business) She soon figured out businesses don’t need coaching, people do. There was a common theme – clients were going around in circles, repeating the same patterns of behaviour and beliefs over and over. This is when ‘Breakup Brilliant’ – an arm of Wellbusi was formed and JC became a ‘Leaving Coach’ helping people ‘breakup’ and leave these patterns behind. As part of the breakaways, Mountain Wellness Co serves the massage, fitness, movement and spa side of the programs. 
JC believes there was no such thing as a ‘successful business’ or a ‘successful relationship’, only successful people. Wellbusi helps everyday people grow extraordinary businesses and specialises in sales solutions, the customer journey and retention -without sacrificing personal life. Breakup Brilliant specialises in relationship\s and personal life ‘breakaways’ creating ‘breakthroughs’! Relationship Renovations: helping people disconnect to reconnect. 


JC is never ‘idol’; she lives wherever the wind takes her as she loves to travel and has some amazing stories. Her top values are connection, awareness, open-ness, thoughtfulness, challenges, travel and fun. A Hockey and Touch Rugby player, lover of Yoga, Pilates, Boxing, Cycling and has done Triathlons, Charity runs and rides her ‘pushie’ for transport and for charity. Her life is a story built for a Hollywood movie with part romantic comedy, part tragedy, drama, documentary and action elements thrown in. Oh, and in several different languages.

“I had it all. Great life, friends, husband, money, business of my dreams but somewhere along the way, and somehow, I f*d it all up! It’s supposed to be the dream, right? Being in a beautiful marriage, being your own boss, having freedom, flexibility, making a positive impact on the world and other people’s lives and no ceiling on your finances? But no one said it would be so tough and for the most part, so lonely. No one told me about the warning signs, to ‘future proof’, or to find a coach that really understood me – all of me, my habits, my health, fitness, what made me tick, my sabotages, my relationships. My heart and my mind. Someone who supported me to strengthen my strengths and delegate my weaknesses. Plus, someone who also understood my business. Not only how to run a successful one (and someone who had also actually done that) AND who had failed as well! I needed a unicorn. So, I became one 🙂 I wanted to implement the ‘to do’s’ and understand and stop doing the ‘not to do’s’. Many coaches are one sided, they have never actually been through it all. A ‘fair weather’ coach as I call them. I had built a very successful 7 figure business in the Wellness industry but at what cost? Something major happened…
 I got f*d. Frustrated. Fatigued. Fed up. I didn’t want that to happen, but it did. I lost everything. My health, my friends, my husband, then years later, my partner, my career, my home. I was hanging onto one thing though, with everything life threw at me, I welcomed it. I knew I had to gather everything I had learned, and worked on my mind before I lost that too. I knew I had to go right through the middle- the hard stuff. I am glad I did, as I came out the other side even better than before and it made me into the person I am today. Able to help others on a deeper level. How to run a successful life, including a successful business. I share my journey and teach others in three areas: Relationships, Business and Legacy – becoming the person you want to be in any/all of these areas.
1. Overcome obstacles. Cut through all the confusion in the chaos.
2. Simplify and reclaim your life. Especially in, or after a crisis or set back.
3. Create and live your life on your terms.
-Your no b.s fast track to maximise your Impact, Inspiration & Income and most importantly your “I”.
“You are not alone. I started off with a vision, a dream and inspiration coming out of everywhere! But…then what? Shit! How do I do all this on my own? I have a saying… sometimes you win, every time you learn. Your business, your relationships, your life, your living, can give you the freedom to do more of what you love, make a difference to people’s lives and enable you to live a life YOU LOVE. If you are willing to do what it takes to get there, I am willing to do what it takes to help you get there.
