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!

Longing to up-level your leadership or career fulfillment? Frustrated with your job and seeking freedom, fulfillment or fresh perspectives?

Then I invite you to take a walk with me! On our coaching stroll, you'll get clarity and focus on what  is most important, and momentum in making it happen. With the added bonus of boosting your health and happiness while immersing yourself in nature. Breathe fresh air and shake out your legs while re-connecting with your inner wild--that voice of wisdom that will help you break through blocks and explore outside the box!

Feel free to connect with me to explore options (in person, by phone and virtual).

...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...

Forest-Bathing for Well-being

Wanting to elevate your energy and well-being? Feeling stuck in the spiral of tenuous tasks and never-ending demands? Tired of trying to problem-solve with a foggy head in dry office air? 

Then join us for a refreshing Forest-Bathing experience, to re-connect with yourself, nature and others! By immersing ourselves in nature's elements and breathing fresh air, we clear our heads and inspire our hearts! Let the forest, the ocean and the mountains relax and re-energize you, and leave with a smile on your face :)

Upcoming free events at UBC's Nitobe Garden Nov. 13 and 27, 2019 and at UBC's Botanical Garden Jan. 15, 2020 (noon). More info below under "Wednesday Wanderings":


...Because for sure it's wild, and if it's wild, it'll mean you're still free no matter where you are." (Rick Bass)

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 solace and empowerment in nature when I've faced personal, health and career challenges and change. My most favourite thing in the world is sharing my passion for the outdoors and for authentic, heart-based leadership. I'm a certified leadership coach, change management consultant and search and rescue leader with 15+ years of leadership development, strategy and planning experience in the health, education, sustainability and outdoor sectors.
