Originally from Scotland and a child of the hippy era, today I live with my family in Vancouver, Canada. I love experiencing other cultures and have visited and worked in North and Central America, New Zealand and Europe. When not coaching, you’ll find me gardening, practising yoga, drawing, exploring cities and towns, and enjoying nature walks. I’m a bit of a nerd, software geek, a bookworm and an ambivert. Simply connecting with people, especially one on one and in small groups, fills my bucket.
I feel honoured and love that I get to work with people around the world as their learning and thinking partner—to play even a small role in them tapping into their brilliance. Clients tell me I am an open, trusted sounding board and immensely relatable. Coaching fascinates me, especially its connection to what is emerging in the area of neuroscience and its positive impact on resilience. I’ve been called a polymath (and then had to look the word up) and my superpower is continuously learning and building on all that I am and bring—in service to me, my family and friends, and the human beings I partner with as a coach.
My passion is coaching: to be a catalyst for momentum by helping people and teams transform through self-discovery, clarity and empowerment to action.
My overarching purpose, in life and work, is to be a catalyst for helping create a world of “Feels like a Saturday” lives, one person at a time. I’d love to explore what that might mean and look like for you.
