National Director, Training & Development
A former Software Engineer in her homeland Australia, during a successful 12 year international career Sharon worked in many roles including Analyst Programmer, Object Oriented Analyst, Business Systems Analyst, Security & Data Encryption Specialist, User Interface Designer, Technical Writer, Website Developer and Graphic Designer.
A burnout forced her to change the pace of her busy lifestyle to pursue a more laid-back way of life. For the next 6 years Sharon worked full time as a College Lecturer Sharon while studying for her Cert IV in Assessment & Workplace Training along with a Bachelor of Arts (Training & Development) for teaching adults. For the first year Sharon taught for the Aboriginal Studies department followed by several years with the Migrant Education program and later also teaching Information Technology; Website Development and Multimedia to school leavers along with Builders Registration Diploma Studies to qualified tradesmen seeking to further their building careers. During the last 3 years of her college teaching, Sharon studied architecture at another campus of the college. Completion of her architecture qualification led to a twist of fate and 2 years working for one of Perth’s biggest building companies – gaining extensive experience in custom designs and multi-unit developments. Over the next 10 years Sharon established herself as a sought after freelance natural building design specialist, designing energy-efficient homes made from rammed earth, straw bale, clay, timber and all natural materials including structural design, and became a member of the Australian Institute of Building Designers.
During this time Sharon was also active helping others and volunteering in her community, served 2 years as a committee member of Ausbale, the Australasian Straw Bale Building Association, was an active member of the Avon Valley Environmental Society for many years, and worked every Thursday for 2 years as a volunteer wildlife carer at the nearby Chidlow Marsupial Hospital.
Sharon continued further studies in topics of interest, gaining further qualifications in areas of spirituality and holistic healing, including Reiki healing, sound therapy, sound healing and meditation, including an extended visit to India to spend time at a nature care retreat centre and a spiritual mission.
Emigrating to Ireland in 2012, Sharon continued her studies in various areas of holistic and spiritual healing. Sharon now enjoys teaching spiritual & motivational development, including her own inspiring womens workshops, sound & music therapy classes and practitioner training, yoga and yoga nidra and nature therapy along with spiritual healing. In December 2018 Sharon returned to India to study Nada Yoga teacher training (Yoga & Music Therapy). Sharon is also experienced in event management having organised various music festivals and fundraising music events in Ireland and Northern Ireland in the past few years.
With a diverse lifetime of experience in many roles, what Sharon enjoys the most about her work is inspiring others to acheive their dreams.
