The LMHR Story
Loren Mitchell is our Principal Consultant of LMHR. Founding the business in 2010, Loren is a Human Resource consulting professional with over 20 years’ experience working in award winning HR teams. Loren has a breadth and depth of experience in the corporate world as well as not-for-profit organisations, and in the last decade, SMEs which are now a speciality.
Unshockable is a word the team uses to describe Loren, having dealt with significant life challenges and endless experiences in the HR realm, she is able to take your pain away by providing rich insights and a broad perspective on life which she brings to the table to help others, particularly in business, where this experience has a unique and, at times, profound impact on clients. This resonates through the DNA of LMHR. From one-on-one executive coaching, strategy to compliance, performance and culture, she has the ability to analyse the overarching HR ecosystem and deliver best practise to SME’s.
Loren is a lover of all music, enjoys travelling, animals and nature (no less than 3 fur babies at a time), has two sons she adores and a beautiful stepdaughter. When possible, she will be found hiking in the bush with her partner and encountering the odd snake (yikes!) or is at the beach enjoying the waves. Loren also loves choccy, a glass of rose and all things fast.
Meet the team
Each of our consultants bring their unique specialisation and experience to the table.
Sarah van Loon

Sarah is amazing at balancing the needs of the business with the needs of the team harmoniously to achieve great outcomes. Perfect fit for the LMHR clients! She loves her cheese and red wine, adores her two sons and has an obsession for Dahlia’s (that’s a flower!).
Sarah Wiles- B.A. Soc Sci, Grad. Dip. HRM
Amongst 15 years of HR generalist experience within legal and higher education sectors, Sarah is an expert in professional development and coaching, maximising the potential of individuals and businesses. Otherwise known as “Wilesy”, she is a Mumma of 4 (3 boys and a pooch), a book club nerd, stationery addict and she shares a birthday with Madonna but is tone-deaf. Ha!
Christine Robinson- BBus (Mgt/Employ. Relations & Tourism)

Christine is a commercially focused senior HR Generalist with specialist experience in transformation projects, organisational development/design, employment relations, performance management, driving change and coaching. With over 20 years of experience, Christine is passionate about partnering with business leaders to engage and inspire their employees. She is a lover of travel. In fact, once Christine convinced a friend to go on a hunt for a 200-year-old banyan tree in Hong Kong only because it obstructed a skyscraper which had to be built around it!
Sarah-Jane Michaelis- BBus (Hotel Management)
Holding over 12 years’ experience in consulting and project managing human resources for some of the world’s leading organisations, Sarah-Jane (also known as SJ) now focuses on providing front and back-end HR services for LMHR to ensure client confidence and operational success.

Meilinda S Thiem- B.A (Public Relations)
Digital Content & Marketing Coordinator
Meilinda has a thing for stories — her career spanned over print, digital and online publications — until she moved to a European country where the focus pivoted to copywriting and digital marketing. Now that she’s back home in Australia, she’s excited to be a part of a company that shares her outlook in work and life balance. While she’s keen in upskilling and applying what she’s learnt over the years, in her free time Meilinda indulges in reading books, cooking (inhaling) new recipes and hitting the beach.
Elena Ramos- Dip. BA (Spain)
Inspired to be working within such a professional and caring team, Elena brings her Spanish flair and organisational detail to Loren and the greater LMHR team. Elena keeps Loren’s life in check to ensure she is running LMHR to the absolute best of her ability and she excels at this. Apart from being an essential part of the fabric at LMHR, she is a lover of whales, bright colours, eating and sleeping (how beautifully European we say.)
Giulia Giacomini- BLaw (MaIL + MaHRM)
With the desire to be a part of such a diverse team of intelligent, brave women, Giulia brings her coordination and timely structure to the LMHR Consulting team. Giulia helps Loren and the rest of the LMHR team stay on the ball with her exceptional administrative flair, working closely with Elena. Apart from being an essential member of LMHR, Giulia enjoys anything arts and craft or homemade… and has a secret stash of lollipops, candies, chocolates and mints in her top drawer.
Carol Reed- Bsc (hons) Mathematics
Having run her own private practise for over 15 years, Carol has helped hundreds of individuals, couples and teams breakthrough old patterns and find peace professionally and personally as they are usually intertwined – this is why it is so important we have this support available to our clients. Carol has helped many dozens of people via LMHR Consulting, likely 100’s…! Carol loves to grow and eat her own food, sit around a campfire with friends and loves helping and healing others.
