About Me

As a former Registered Nurse for more than 30 years, I have used the concepts of coaching, counselling and educating wherever my career has taken me.  Engaged in adult education since the start of my career, I am passionate about our abilities to change, grow and improve throughout our lives!

Born asking questions and seeking to help people better understand their situations, I believe I am a natural coach! I first started working as a coach in 2006 in a non-profit setting and made the leap to private practice in 2010.  In 2011, the International Coaching Academy made me a better coach! With over 160 hours of coach specific education as well as many hours of mentored and supervised coaching practice, I graduated in August 2011 with the Certified Professional Coach credentialScreen Shot 2014-08-13 at 8.08.12 PM recognized by the International Coach Federation, (ICF) the world’s largest and best-respected association of coaches.  I became accredited as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by ICF in August 2014.

Personally, I am a 4h 30m marathon runner and an avid outdoors enthusiast who finds her joy paddling a canoe or hauling a backpack into ‘cellphone free’ territory!  Devotedly married to my life partner for more than 30 years, I am also a mother and grandmother.  I am an obesity survivor who has been living and breathing the possibility of personal change since 2003.

I know transformational change is possible!  If you’re stuck and need someone to walk with you while you forge a new life for yourself, contact me today. I have a deep desire to serve others in a meaningful way; it’s the reason I went into nursing so many years ago and the joy of my coaching practice now.

Distance is no barrier; I coach by telephone.
