Restore . Empower . Transform



"If it's wild to your own heart, protect it. Preserve it. Love it. And fight for it, and dedicate yourself to it...

Take a Walk on the Wild Side!

Tired of trying to solve problems with a foggy head in dry office air? Feeling stuck in the spiral of tenuous tasks, never-ending demands or repeat patterns? Frustrated with your job and longing for freedom, fulfillment or fresh perspectives?

Come take a walk on the "wild side" with me! Immerse yourself in nature while breathing fresh air and shaking out your legs! (Re-)connect with your inner wild--that voice of wisdom and longing that wants you to break through blocks and explore options outside the box! Get clarity and focus on what you need and gain momentum in making it happen--and boost your health and happiness while being outdoors.

Wild Outside, and Inside

I'm passionate about being active outdoors and exploring the wilderness outside and inside of us! Time and time again, I've found inspiration, solace and empowerment in nature when I've faced personal and career challenges or changes. My most favourite thing in the world is sharing my passion for the outdoors and for heart-based leadership. I'm a certified leadership coach and change management consultant with 15+ years of leadership, strategy and planning experience in the health, sustainability and outdoor industries.

...It doesn't matter if it's wild to anyone else: if it's what makes your heart sing, if it's what makes your days soar like a hawk in the summer time, then focus on it...
