In a world where information is always available, where we work in a global time zone and where we can communicate in so many ways the ability to manage change is essential.
Not only do we need to manage change, we need to interact with people more than ever.

In all of my studies & my work…..my biggest discoveries are…..we all have a desire for fulfillment & it is SO much easier to create CHANGE when you don’t go it alone!
Here’s the story of how I discovered both!
Growing up, I had two loves….dance and school.
I think I read my first personal development book by the time I was about 14. And when I wasn’t in a dance studio, I was feeding my ever increasing interest in psychology. No matter where I was, my attention was always drawn to wanting to learn about peoples’ interests and goals. After listening to my first motivational speaker at my high school….I was hooked, I knew that my dream was to help people pursue their biggest goals!
After completing a degree in Psychology at the age of 22. I started my career. For the first decade, I worked in employment and career development programs. I worked with hundreds, maybe even thousands of people in the midst of personal change. However, I had an ever increasing desire to build a business of my own. It was like having someone poking my shoulder…..it would never quite leave me alone!
Makes sense…..both of my parents were successfully self-employed, as was my husband.
So, I found myself reigniting that spark…..the intense interest in psychology and of creating a business all of my own.
It is through coaching, that I am able to really put over 30 years of interest and study in psychology to work!
Outside of my work…..I live on the beautiful east coast of Vancouver Island with my husband of over 20 years, our 20 year-old son and our slightly weird, but very cute cat!
