I am a former consultant and program manager with non-profit and government organizations. I have a business degree (B.Comm), majoring in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and have a knack for people, strategy, and analysis/budgets.
After having two kids, I found that I couldn't fit in the box of a typical worker anymore. I had my own coach early in my career, and it stuck with me ever since - mainly being able to come to my own solutions and in my own way. I decided to become a coach myself.
Since, I've completed my coach training and certification through the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), and am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaches Federation (ICF). I've also completed additional training in compassion cultivation, positive intelligence, and somatic coaching (embodied coaching).
I've been coaching for many organization and have experience coaching small business entrepreneurs, high-potential managers up to directors and VPs, as well as students. I've coached more than 100 different people with business and personal topics (realistically, they are intertwined).
What makes me unique, coaching-wise, is that I like to tap into the body for more wisdom and for starting new habits. I'm also highly empathic and intuitive, so I can sometimes read between the lines and provide insights. Expect to be yourself and be empowered in our sessions. I love having fun and seeing the magic of transformation and awareness. A quirk about myself is that I can be a people person and a numbers person.
Things I like to do for fun, now that I have little kids, watch cartoons on Netflix, ski, bike, hike, look for mushrooms, and badminton. Before kids - canoeing/kayaking, climbing, running, golfing, and having free time!
