Self-employed since the age of 20 Dallas’ working life to date has encompassed a wide and varied range of vocations, culminating in the formation of Creative Allsorts Network and Creative Concepts Mentoring.

For many years Dallas was well known for her work on the stage, television and radio – as a presenter - actress - producer. She was a presenter on Playschool for many years and was a resident actress on McPhail and Gadsby, she was a newsreader for the ‘7.30 South’ television programme in Dunedin and also a newsreader for radio 3ZB, was a co-presenter on a lifestyle show on CTV in Christchurch, and also produced and presented the ‘Look Good Feel Good’ inspirational radio programme.

She also initiated the concept of the first Trust House in Christchurch under the Child Cancer Foundation for families of children with life-threatening illnesses, following the death of her own son.  This house was based on the Australian Ronald McDonald House model which is operating in Christchurch today. Her fundraising activities for this included a radiothon, which won an international Community Radio Award in New York. 

In recent years Dallas has been a Fitness Trainer and Gym Owner (First Aerobics Studio in New Zealand).  

While working towards a Diploma in Event Management she became the creator of ‘Inspirational Chockies’ – a tailor-made product containing inspirational messages which was widely used by corporates, and sold in cafes throughout New Zealand. Dallas also created the ‘Rare Birds’ Business Network for Women.

She then honed her skills as a Sales Consultant and Communications Manager for an Investment Property Company and a Publishing Company.

Dallas is also the Founder Director of EEP (Energetic Emotional Profile) which is a network used extensively in her Creative Concepts Mentoring business for men and women.

This method enables her to use her years of experience and knowledge to help others creatively expand both professionally and personally.
