Coaching for me is a methodical approach to learning and growth where we engage in a creative, collaborative, and reflective process that generates new levels of awareness, accountability, and purpose in achieving positive outcomes with long-lasting effects. Learn more about my coaching philosophy.

I am a 1:1 and group coach at the University of British Columbia, an alumni coach for the UBC Certified Organizational Coach program, and I also operate an external coaching practice through my coaching consultancy

The people I coach

I have worked with:

  • Leaders growing into executive-level roles in not-for-profit and public sector organizations
  • Experienced leaders entering a new position and inheriting an existing team
  • Emerging leaders adapting to growth in fast-paced tech and start-up environments
  • High-performing team members growing into leadership roles within their team
  • Entrepreneurs entering new stages of business growth
  • Mid-career professionals re-orienting their career paths
  • Successful professionals seeking work-life balance
  • Young professionals navigating the early stages of their career
  • New teams learning to work together for the first time
  • Established teams learning to work together in new ways
  • Teams undergoing business process reviews
  • Teams navigating the impact of digital transformation

While every person and every team’s situation is unique, what they all share in common is a commitment to a process that leads to tangible results such as:

  • a shift in mindset and perspective
  • clarity of vision, purpose, and focus
  • increased levels of awareness, accountability, and commitment
  • newfound momentum in taking action towards new goals
  • improved career satisfaction
  • healthy and sustainable work-life balance
  • new levels of peak performance
  • confidence and excitement with navigating the future
  • successfully transitioning into a new job or entirely new career path
