Nicole Stewart Class of 2005
Performance Coach to High Achieving and Highly Motivated Women
What have you been doing since you left Kilvington?
I began my coaching journey in 2009. I’d had a bad equestrian accident the year before and lost a lot of confidence as a horse rider. I wanted to get my confidence back, and started searching outside the box for support and solutions. At the time my career trajectory was in the horse industry. I started doing life coaching and personal development work for myself, and knew almost straight away that I wanted to become a coach.
I got qualified in 2011, and have been coaching people since. It just comes naturally to me, and I love it so much!
I competed to 2 grades down from Olympic standard in the equestrian sport of three day eventing. I spent many years early in my career exclusively coaching other equestrian athletes, because of my own journey.
In the last four years I’ve transitioned to working with women (and some men) in a variety of fields who want to be masters of themselves. ‘Women Who Want it All’- business, personal, romantic, financial, spiritual success… I work with dentists, surgeons, CEO’s, athletes and entrepreneurs to help them get better results and live more fully expressed, authentic lives!
What has been a career highlight?
Being the performance coach to Joann Formosa – Australia’s Gold Medal Winning Paralympic Equestrian Athlete at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
I was just 24 when Jo won her gold medal at London, it was early in my coaching career. Jo and I are still friends to this day, it was such a delight to contribute to her achievement!
What are your future plans?
My partner, Paul, and I have made the decision to remain childfree, we have two gorgeous and weird cats. I want to continue to travel lots, and continue to serve women all over the world to crack out of the cage they’ve learned to live in, so they can be their authentic, fully expressed, powerful selves! I want to experience all that life has to offer, see far off places, go on wild adventures and always be challenging myself to see what is possible.
What are your memories of Kilvington?
My friends! I was never the most academically oriented person at school. I was grateful to be surrounded by some amazing women at Kilvington, some of whom are still my close friends today.
