My Story

I had the unique experience of growing up in an intentional community as a child, and that experience taught me ways to work harmoniously with others, not at the expense of one another. However, as I moved into my working life I was surprised when I saw firsthand how many organizations seemed to have a disconnect between their external purpose in the world (stated mission) and the everyday internal dynamics of the organization (toxic conflict). 

 

Many of those I was working with were unhappy  and I wanted to learn how to change it. So I decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Human Systems Intervention and became a certified coach and organizational development consultant. 

 

I am grateful that for more than 18 years, I have been able to help individuals and organizations achieve growth that deeply matters to their personal and professional wellbeing. My work has spanned not-for-profit, public, higher education and philanthropic sectors in Canada and internationally. 

 

On my path, I have trained as a volunteer in Restorative Justice, Critical Incident Stress Support for First Responders, Conflict Mediation and I am a Mentor in the Human Systems Intervention Graduate program at Concordia University. I am an active and ongoing learner in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion efforts.  I am a certified Professional Integral Coach and Yasodhara Yoga Teacher. 

 

These practices inform my approach and inspire me to embody courage, awareness and integrity. I actively create spaces that are inclusive and honouring of the people I work with.

 

Finally, I am thankful for my family, friends and mentors who shape and reshape me through their love and support. I live on a beautiful cliff overlooking Kootenay Lake, nestled in the Purcell Mountains in Queens Bay, BC. This land is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Ktunaxa & Sinixt nations.
