Since my childhood when I arranged a mini classroom for my siblings on weekends I have been in some form of teaching or helping profession. In 1997 I made a formal commitment to leave the structure of business and create opportunities to fulfill my passion for learning and growth for myself and others.
By 2000 I began leading life-changing retreats for women that drew on my deep spiritual beliefs and determination that time 'away' is critical for all of us. The bodies of work grew along with my own ongoing studies and remarkable women from around the world came to find their inner wisdom. I was also leading informative and motivational workshops for public groups and in corporate settings.
During this time I trained as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach with the world renowned Coaches Training Institute. My focus was on guiding people through transition; helping them find clarity as they set goals and visions for their future. I used Shadow Work and Perspective exercises to encourage and provoke new ways of being while letting go of limiting beliefs. Eventually I undertook the rigorous, ten month Co-Active Leadership Program to broaden my experience and better serve my clients.
In 2013 I was introduced to the Power of Ted* (The Empowerment Dynamic*) and discovered a pathway to self-empowerment that I knew would be essential work for my clients both personally and professionally. I studied with the Bainbridge Institute and became a Certified TED* Practitioner. This ground breaking work has become my primary tool in supporting people out of the Drama Triangle and into The Empowerment Dynamic. When I saw how effective the skills were in my own life and those of my clients I knew I was ready to do more than just talk about it. In early 2017 I developed Creating Extraordinary Outcomes in the Workplace and have committed time and resources to working with organizations who are on the leading edge of developing more sustainable relationships internally and externally.
As if that's not enough, I am also a published author of several books to nudge people into living well with purpose and joy. I live on the shores of Lake Huron near the village of Tobermory, Ontario, Canada with my loving and supportive husband Doug.
