Witnessing the ahas! and the excitement of individuals and groups achieving success, and helping facilitate that – that’s my passion. It was at the core of what I loved about teaching university students during my career as a professor. I am excited to use my background in business, law and education, in private and public sectors, to help organisations and the people who work within them to envision and achieve their goals.
I can help your organisation in three areas: facilitation, training & communications. Your board, community organisation or business can achieve more in meetings, strategic planning sessions and retreats designed and facilitated to bring the best out of your talented and knowledgeable employees, board members or volunteers. I can help the people in your organization who train your employees become more effective in that role. And if you need someone to draft polished and professional communications, I can help with that as well.
My educational background includes a BA in Psychology & Sociology and a JD (law degree) from UVic, a certificate in Facilitation & Training from the Justice Institute of BC, and I am certified to provide Instructional Skills Workshops (ISW). I have worked in the private and public sectors in sales & marketing, real estate, law and post secondary education.
While I’ve lived and travelled elsewhere, I was born on the West Coast and am most at home enjoying the lifestyle our stunning Vancouver Island offers. I’m an avid hiker, kayaker, paddle-boarder, baker, sewer & knitter. And I’m grateful for a wonderful community of family and friends near and far.
