I am a Career Transition and Leadership Development Coach who is PCC certified through the International Coach Federation. I am also an EQ-i certified practitioner and hold a certificate in Mindfulness Coaching.
The last 10 years have been focused on coaching emerging leaders in the corporate world, MBA and Masters students looking to get their careers started, people working through career and life transitions.
I have a genuine interest in working with you on your journey. To help you recognize your inherent worth, strengths, values, capabilities, interests and desires. My approach is holistic in nature. We can't talk about career without touching on other aspects of your life.
Over 5 years ago, I transitioned into the world of higher education and coaching after two decades in the corporate world. For many years, I knew that my values were not aligned to the work that I did and this caused a great deal of conflict between my brain and my heart. I was not living the life that I was meant to live and I was stuck. Golden handcuffs, you might say. This is where I am so grateful for the difficult moments that brought on the change and ultimately my transition. Without those moments, I would have never discovered the joy and peace that I have in my life today.
I have been told that one of my greatest abilities is to create a safe space where others feel comfortable bringing their whole, authentic, vulnerable selves to discussions. I believe that transformation happens when we can explore what is under the surface to really understand where you are and where you want to go. My goal is to help you build self-awareness, gain new perspectives and consider options you might not have even thought about.
On a personal note, I live in Toronto. I have two adult children in University, a dog and a cat. I am passionate about hot yoga, back country camping, live music, dancing and spending time with the people I love.
