“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be” – Lao Tzu

I am a Resilience Thought Leader and Power Life Coach, APC®, ICF® a certified Hatha and Therapeutic Yoga instructor, RYT® and author with a published memoir.

For the past nine years, since my husband’s passing and through the benefit of my augmented ‘Personal Resilience’ I have transformed myself and my life.  My transformation evolved thru my passions for writing, health, family, yoga and my desires to help others create more resilient, purposeful and joyful lives.

As a child my family immigrated from Denmark and my ensuing, unsettled Canadian childhood, was not an easy one.  Yet despite our substantial and complicated family hardships, I matured into a successful business woman.  I helped to forge the path for women in technology and ultimately earned my way to Director of Information Technology at TELUS.  My thriving career provided me with many of my happiest and most rewarding experiences, especially those years when I competently nurtured my family as a single mother and unconsciously refined my resiliency skills.

At fifty-one I met and married my soul mate and was directly thereafter arrested by his stage 4 colon cancer for an ensuing five and a half years. My husband’s illness, death and the subsequent trauma I suffered (my Resilience Journey) would prove to be the most difficult quest of my life but also a most enriching resilience period.

I know first hand the destruction of soul, mind and body that loss, adversity and trauma can inflict through my own personal pursuit to survive it.  I know how difficult is is to access the right resources to help one navigate its ensuing life damage.  And I know how difficult it can be to manage the constant barrage of change that life will continually present us all.

Its a joy and privilege to show my clients how to successfully negotiate life’s challenges while inspiring them to build sustainable, healthy practices which create ever more resilient, fulfilling and joyful lives.  My powerful LIFE COACHING services will transform you!
