I facilitate reflection, awareness & insight
Ignite intention, courage, creativity & resolve
And infuse organizations with all of the above.
I am a coach, facilitator and consultant specializing in leadership culture, and organizational development. I bring over 18 years of broad experience in HR and learning & development, gained through a unique combination of in-house corporate, non-profit, and tech start-up experience, as well as my independent coaching and consulting practice.
After completing my MBA in 2004, I spent nine years at CIBC in a variety of domains of Human Resources gaining a deep appreciation for the complexities inherent in the people-side of business.
In 2012, I was introduced to leadership coaching, which changed the trajectory of my career. I pursued coach training and certification, followed by a consistent stream of professional development courses related to adult learning, growth and development. Since then, I've been engrossed in learning and teaching about the neuroscience of emotions, behaviour and change - and how we can harness this understanding to the benefit of relationships, both within and outside the workplace.
After a year spent as an independent coach in 2014, I was drawn to the energy, innovation and social impact of Toronto's MaRS Discovery District, where I spent over five years in HR & learning leadership roles. Following that, I served as Chief People Officer at Inkblot Therapy, a virtual mental-health company. In 2020, I returned to independant coaching, training and consulting by launching Move Forward.
On a part-time basis, I currently serve as an Executive-in-Residence at the Brampton Venture Zone, a technology start-up incubator. I am a keen advocate for building deliberately developmental organizations, and love documentaries, podcasts and nature-based travel.
