About

Hi, I’m Lucy, Senior IT Manager, Coach and Mentor. I established my business – a global, Professional Development Coaching Practice in 2018. This was after following my own journey with career challenges as a middle-to-senior manager as well as overcoming blockers and barriers that held me back. A flavour of everything I learned and gained in my corporate career and the educational journey I embarked on. My Coaching Practice represents my ambition and values in life: empowering and enriching females in their professional development, amplifying potential, driving for equality and changing the face of leadership.

Why Ask Lucy?

I love to create content but I felt I was becoming a slave to the algorithms and hashtags. So I fell out of love with social media for a while and had a social media detox. After taking a break, I came up with the concept of creating content driven by the my audience. The whole purpose to my brand is about empowering and supporting professional women. So Ask Lucy was born. Offering free coaching advice to a specific career problem. And hopefully enriching all professional women globally.
