Body Image Expert, Speaker, and Consultant


Hi, I'm Zali, and internationally recognised expert in body image and wellbeing,

and mother of three kids (aged 7, 5, and 5).

I've spent the past 16 years in academia, leading research in health and wellbeing.

I am now the CEO of the Body Confident Collective, a not-for-profit research translation organisation,

a consultant, speaker, and coach, supporting women who want to do big things while raising little people. 




Enhancing body image, wellbeing, and professional learning

I bring a dynamic approach to projects involving research and evaluation, or the development of professional learning materials.

Through the Body Confident Collective, I also work closely with businesses to apply our unique 5-point framework to reframe your approach to support positive body image with confidence and authenticity.


Organisations seeking dynamic, evidence-based speakers

I draw on my extensive research expertise and years of teaching experience to create engaging keynotes, interactive workshops, and professional development that brings the latest evidence around body image, and makes it accessible.

I also facilitate workshops and speak to researchers and Higher Degree Research students about design thinking and enhancing research impact. 


Mothers wanting to do big things while raising little people

I bring my extensive experience of raising three kids while navigating all things career and life to my coaching with mothers at all stages- during pregnancy, on the return to work, or at the point of taking big leaps, leaving your career and starting a business.

Here, I bring psychology research and principles to life, along with a deep understanding of matrescence, to help you find clarity and feel confident in your choices around work and motherhood.
