About Me

I’m a 3rd generation Metis woman, originally from Saskatchewan, Canada.  My amazing husband Tom and I have been together since 1984. We are blessed with two young adult children, one with autism. I’ve learned so much from each of them, and they have shaped the person I am today.  I bring many lessons and lived experiences from the school of life.  I attended the informal but highly educational ‘School of Hard Knocks’ in my adolescent years. Formal education, yes I bring a little of that too:

  • 2015: Therapeutic Touch® Levels I, II, III – Kwantlen College
  • 2014: Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator
  • 2013: Certificate of Completion – The Art and Science of Coaching, Erickson International
  • 2013: Certificate of Completion – Infinite Possibilities, Train the Trainer Program, Seattle, Washington — Mike Dooley
  • Former Registered Nurse (29 years) — I practiced in both hospital and community settings; I enjoyed a decade of nursing on urban reserves in the areas of health program development and direct patient care.
  • Volunteer: I am always happy to be of service to others. Currently, I am a Regional Resource Parent with Family Support Institute, and I also volunteer coach four times a year with a youth skills employment program called A Chance To Choose. In December, you can find me filling hampers and sorting toys with Deltassist Family and Community Services Society.

Who else inspires me? In addition to Brené Brown and Mike Dooley, whom I consider big ticket mentors, I am stirred by the work of Caroline Myss, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Wayne Dyer and Dr. Joe Dispenza.
