► Professional Background
The minute I understood I’m a social introvert, life became easier and much more fulfilling.
Uncovering my personality type helped me to understand myself better and be true to myself. The most empowering and liberating moment was when I stepped into my power and claimed my strength to navigate in a loud world. I found the right tools to make my personality type work for me and not against me.
Before becoming a quiet leadership coach, I was successful in the corporate world and served clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. I loved accessing my creativity and intuition, problem solving, leading teams and building strategies. But other parts of my job took its toll on my energy: constant business meetings, fast paced working environment, long working hours and being around people all day with no solitude time at all.
Honouring my desire for deeper fulfillment, I made the difficult decision to quit my job and embark on a voyage of self discovery. Finding out who I was and what I was capable of gave me the confidence to change careers. I studied coaching and counselling at Rhodes Wellness College – where I am now an instructor and coach – and soon established my own private practice. In 2015 and 2016 I had the honour of being ranked as one of Vancouver’s Top Five Life Coaches by Crowd Wellness.
Jumping into the unknown was a huge risk, but the reward of connecting to my purpose and values has been worth every moment of doubt, insecurity and fear.
I am proud to be able to combine my skills as a quiet leader, marketer and coach to assist others in their own journey.
