About

I am a trained and certified Integral Professional Coach, following a 30-year career as a leader, senior executive, lawyer, and policy wonk in the national professional association, federal government, and NGO sectors. I inspired individuals and high-performance teams to create value and voice in diverse and demanding professional communities. I bring to my coaching that experience, perspectives from a rich personal life, and the rigour, depth and demonstrated effectiveness of the Integral Coaching Method

After 30 years of ‘balancing’ intense, amazing, high profile work with the needs of my family and the rest of my life, I knew that it was time for my own transformational change.  I left my position at what some would call the height of my career to train and certify as a Professional Coach. This was what I’d been preparing for my whole career and in my personal life. This is what I do. It’s how I support others in the development and growth they want in their professional and personal lives. To help people bring their “human-ness” to work in ways that support their performance and success, bring value to their organizations and teams, and contribute to healthy, respectful, productive and happy workplaces.

My “whole person/whole situation” approach, is the framework I use to support my clients and contribute to human development in the workplace.
