We are the quiet achievers, the sensitive souls, the deep thinkers, the internal processors, the solitude seekers.

We come from all over the place, we share certain traits but we have experiences, knowledge, and resources that set us apart, that bring us together.

We are here to share ideas and collaborate, to tell our stories, and connect in a way that feels energising to us.


We are you.

The Introvert Effect was born out of a true desire to support introverts to better accept and understand this nuanced part of their personality. After seeing the effect that my interest and research started to have on other introverted souls finding their voice and sharing their needs with family, friends, and coworkers from a place of deep personal awareness.

Now it has become bigger than me.

And with that came a realisation that I don’t have all the answers (or many at all!). I’m not a guru or an expert, just another curious innie soul seeking meaning in this crazy ass world. This isn’t about me, it’s about you. Because I have learned that everyone has a story to tell. Everyone has knowledge and lessons that they’ve come across over the years. Why should it just come from one person?

So The Introvert Effect evolved into something new.

A collaborative community by introverts for introverts.

A place for sharing thoughts, musings, tips, and wisdom from one person to another in hopes that we can create a patchwork quilt of ideas and – through that – a community built on deep and meaningful connection (our favourite kind).

I can’t wait to see what this project evolves into.

Thank you for being here.
