About Miriam

A graduate of Trinity College Dublin, (MA) and University College Cork (HDE), Miriam spent much of her career in music and education.  She qualified both as a life-coach and Adult Trainer with diplomas from Positive Success Group (2011) and FETAC (2011).   She is the founder of WiseTime, which has grown from her experiences over richly lived years  identifying strengths and bringing out the best in others.

Always searching for new horizons, she set out as an orchestral musician, studying French horn in the Netherlands, playing with the RTE Symphony Orchestra, Dublin (now the NSO) and orchestras in Sweden and Austria, before embarking on a career in secondary education.

She enjoyed considerable variety within her teaching career working in schools in Ireland and Australia before settling in the UK, where she has held positions of responsibility, academic and pastoral, in both State and Independent sectors.  During the past five years, she has worked as an independent Educational Consultant and Professional Development Facilitator.

She is a poet, and her poetry reflects her appreciation of beauty and the underlying spiritual belief that whatever may befall, ‘all manner of thing shall be well’.  Julian of Norwich
