Her work involved the creation and implementation of OH&S, workers’ compensation, recruitment and selection, performance management, training and development and disciplinary systems which she personally rolled out throughout the organisation. Concurrently she co-founded a Children’s Charity supporting orphaned and abandoned children which has helped thousands of children since its inception.

Additionally, Michaela has experience in the development and delivery of climate surveys, competency and training package development, team building, conflict resolution, executive development, trainee management programs and culture change and organisational change programs. She has worked in the not-for-profit sector, hospitality and aged care sectors, consulted to government and non-government organisations including fast moving consumer goods.

Michaela is passionate about facilitating adaptive change at both individual and organisational levels. She also provides individual professional coaching, mentoring, debriefing and counselling, utilising a wide range of evidence based therapeutic techniques as the situation requires.
