About me

Based In


Boasting a distinguished career that spans over three decades, Michelle stands as a testament to transformative change and lasting impact. As the co-founder and Managing Director of DSRUPTRS and the visionary force behind Not Stationary, she has pushed the boundaries of innovation, personal development, and social responsibility.

Michelle has significantly influenced the sports industry and beyond throughout her illustrious journey. Notably, her role as the National Rugby League's (NRL) Community Relations Manager led to pioneering initiatives like the School to Work Transition Program, which dramatically transformed the lives of over 2,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, achieving an astounding 98.2% success rate. This initiative, crowned with the international Beyond Sport Award, represents just a fraction of her capacity to drive inclusivity and inspire profound societal change.

In her commitment to empowerment, Michelle has extended her expertise to life coaching, where she works with individuals, teams, and groups through a values-based approach that has transformed lives. Her latest venture, Not Stationary, introduces science-based coaching tools that empower individuals to realise their full potential. Michelle’s innovative approach to personal growth is rooted in the belief that everyone can overcome challenges and achieve greatness.

With extensive experience working within a governing body and in partnership with government, NRL clubs, community-based organisations, and corporates, Michelle has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to navigate and influence complex ecosystems for positive change. Her leadership roles, including as a proud Board Director of Share the Dignity and The Female Co., underscore her commitment to uplifting women and girls facing adversity.
