I have worked in the helping professions for decades. Before becoming a life coach, I worked as a professional teacher in Ontario, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. I truly enjoyed the opportunity to respond to the needs of child and adult learners from diverse backgrounds in a wide range of settings spanning inner cities to remote First Nations communities. After many years of teaching, I eventually discovered a passion for helping people achieve their personal development goals. I am a certified life coach with extensive training in acupoint tapping and have spent many years studying, practicing and teaching mindfulness techniques. I am currently completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree at Yorkville University in New Brunswick via distance education. I have spent the last 20 years living, working and volunteering here in Guelph, where I raise my two school-aged children.
