Justine is the founder & director of the worldwide franchise “Ecole de Pole Studios” which first opened in London in 2010, now also in Singapore & Cleveland, USA.

Justine spends her time managing the Ecole de Pole network whilst also putting on her annual Phuket Pole Retreats, works full time at a fundraising consultancy firm with charities such as Royal Flying Doctors, Red Cross, Mission Australia, Canteen and Four Paws; has now released her renowned Instructor Training Courses to the public in 2017 after 8 years of development and freelance teaches and coaches pole dancers in Brisbane and around Australia through workshops and courses doing what she loves most: sharing her knowledge from decades in the dance and pole industry nurturing pole talent throughout the country and around the globe.
