Author Bio

A lot of words are used to describe me and how I work: playful, present, non-judgemental, positive, creative, grounded and empathic. Occasionally, devil's advocate… And that's how I show up when we work together to connect the dots in your life, health, work and fun. 

For the past 20 years, I have worked in the science and health care sector, from the front line to research, regulatory, project and program management environments. During that time, I've worked with patients, families and health care workers through their decisions, growth, adjustments and loss; I've tested innovations, implemented regulations and adjusted structures, navigated system challenges and, always, supported people through change. 

Personally, I've learned to manage my own challenges and changes and hold space and presence for others' challenges and changes. Births and losses, of people and programs. Life-altering allergies, arthritis, diabetes, system-wide change, house-wide change, growth, down-sizing, pain management, anxiety, depression and stress. Any one of these can add stress and shift balances—for us, and for those around us. 

Through all of this, I've picked up a few skills along the way: 

  • Solution-Focused Coaching: a coaching path that began in 2011 lead to formal training in solution-focused methods at Erickson College. By supporting others to meet their challenges and change in a judgement-free, positive environment, goals are defined and achieved with greater efficiency, clarity and thoughtfulness. I am a member of the International Coach Federation. 
  • Reiki -Usui and Karuna(R) Practitioner and Master Healer: Since 2010, I've worked with adults, youth and animals to help relieve their day-to-day-stresses, and build support for specific goals. I have been honoured to be able to provide reiki and mindfulness skills to support goals of healing and well-being, and to support clients' peaceful passing from this world. I am a member of the Canadian Reiki Association. 
  • Data-driven and detail-oriented, in a holistic system: a degree in Medical Laboratory Science and over 20 years in private and public sectors brings with it no small amount of appreciation and understanding of the structure, process, metrics, projects and quality-based systems. It's good to know how to get there, what's at the end and the framework it’s all happening in. 

Over the years, I have connected with an amazing number of amazing people from patients and family at the bedside of senior care facilities and sexual health clinics, to Board tables and multiple committees at non-profit societies. It's all about communication: connecting with people, connecting them to each other and supporting people to connect to their own ideas and best results. 

I look forward to connecting with you.
