Education

I obtained a business degree from UBC in 1990 with a major in Human Resources. I was trained in coaching techniques by Coach U in 2004 by some very experienced and amazing coaches. I have attended workshops on life purpose, nutrition, quantum physics, manifesting, Radical Forgiveness, clearing, vision boards, manifesting and many more. Some of my teachers include Dr. Joseph Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Dr. Teresa Clarke, Adam, Ellie Drew, Marlena Field and Donna Eden. My learning also includes internet marketing and website design. I continue to learn through workshops, teleclasses, books, people I meet, my clients, and my experiences.

Experience

I have been coaching professionally since 2004. I have coached hundreds of clients, with most hiring me for 3-6 months initially and some continuing for over a year.

I have experience as an investigator, Human Resources assistant, interviewer, trainer, supervisor, insurance adjuster and salesperson.  In 2001 I left my stressful job to find a career that would use all my skills and interests and allow me to spend more time with my two young daughters.  I became a life coach because I am passionate about helping people make positive changes in their lives.

Skills

Through my career as an investigator I developed the ability to ask perceptive questions and listen carefully for what is said and not said.  I love challenges and problem-solving, looking at the big picture and breaking it down into bite-sized pieces.  I am a researcher with many resources (people, books, internet sites) and a thirst for learning.  I can often guess someone’s Myers Briggs personality type (MBTI) after listening to them talk about themselves for a short time.


“People usually turn to coaches for professional and career growth. They want help in setting goals, solving problems or acquiring new skills. But business coaching often leads to personal insights. Clients are better able to deal with obstacles and change. It’s easier to balance work life with their personal life. And in some cases, it gives them the courage to pursue a dream.”
