“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”  – Anais Nin

I specialize in coaching smart, competent and committed professionals to reach their true potential. Professionals who want to excel in their career and their lives.

I am a highly motivated individual who brings energy and possibility to all that I do. I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (Coaches Training Institute), an Associate Certified Coach (International Coaching Federation) and provide a specialty service in Coaching Abrasive Leaders (Boss Whispering™ Method). I hold a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, a BA in Sociology, a Diploma in Criminal Justice and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution .

My background and accomplishments at a young age in the sport of figure skating were instrumental in developing my discipline, courage and understanding of what it takes to be committed and follow your dreams.

My path to becoming a professionally certified coach and motivator of others started at the age of 12 when I sat in an arena in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships as a spectator.  I was a young athlete sitting in the stands with my mother, and I remember saying… “I am going to be in the National Championships!”  Many years later, that dream became a reality through hard work and the support of many who believed in me.  

When I look back on this time of my life I recognize it as the years I learned about goal setting, dealing with winning and losing, and the thrill of accomplishment through commitment and hard work.  I understood over time that my success was as I defined it, and although it was within my power to achieve that success, it was only attainable if I was fully committed to the action required to succeed.  Knowledge and awareness alone are not enough to create the change we want, without action we do not move or grow.

I am passionate about professional coaching because it allows me to make a difference in the lives of my clients.  Making a difference is a core value of mine, and over the course of my life those that have made the biggest difference and had the greatest impact on me are those who believed in me even when I did not believe in myself.  Today, I work to make that difference for others.

My mission and commitment is to work with you to unearth what is holding you back, and from there support you in gaining the clarity and direction you need to achieve your goals. I then help you step into and push through the change that seems incredibly scary and overwhelming, which then allows you to lean into the life you want and be all that you are capable of being.

This is your life and you only have one life to live…. I challenge you to live it fully by starting today with gaining the clarity you need to propel yourself forward!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life…what are you waiting for?
