I am a leadership coach, writer, speaker, entrepreneur, educator, and learning junkie.
I’m a mother to a four legged and furry laughing buddha named Bodhi and am grateful to have a huge self selected family all around the world. I’m an albatross on a long journey of self discovery and exploration. I’m a creative, a nomad, an explorer, a curious soul, as likely to be on top of a mountain as in a museum. I value connection, curiosity, and laughter above all else. And I strive to understand love and trust as they relate to the human condition and the capacity (and my capacity) to live in a state of grace.
I've been called a "renaissance woman" and I'm all about being real. I'm spent a lot of time learning how to be comfortable being myself, which makes me more creative and happier. I wish that for all of my clients, a life designed in alignment with how we are wired.
I am passionate, adventurous, spontaneous, and have made it a mission to get as much out of life as possible. I've lived and worked in many parts of Canada, as well as Mexico and Ecuador. I love to climb and ski and surf, and ride, and also to read and have quiet conversations. Getting outside, spending time with people, talking about or doing things that I care about. I also always save time to play with my dog, who is a constant reminder not to take life too seriously and who has many lessons to teach me.
Everything that we do has an impact on something or someone else, and understanding my impact helps me make choices that allow me to live in alignment with my values.
I have 15 years of business building experience and I offer a combination of coaching and mentoring. I am a staunch ally and champion of my clients and work with people who dream big. I have a Bachelor of Education and am certified by the Coaches Training Institute (CPCC) and the International Coaches Federation (PCC) and have completed the Co-Active Leadership program. I am also certified in the Leadership Circle 360 Profile assessment. I have partnered successfully with Shell Canada, The Calgary Public School Board, Anne Arundel Community College, and more.
Writing... I am a contributor on the Huffington Post Blog, I have written online course curriculum, children's books, poetry, and I just finished a book on my favourite topic, Curiosity! Oh, and there's also the blog! Connect with me now.
