I have always embraced change, creating new challenges to realize my full potential. This is what has propelled me to continuously explore new horizons, literally and figuratively. I have worked, studied, and taught in Canada, the United States, and Europe. As an executive and a scholar, my first hand international experience has given me a thorough understanding of global, organizational challenges.

Throughout my journey, I have developed and applied valuable insights for managing diversity and change. I consider inclusive leadership as the basis for every strategic and operational aspect of a business. I excel in identifying performance gaps, and coaching leaders and their teams to create inclusive workplaces for growth and sustainable results. I have over 25 years of combined experience in developing leaders in Canada and abroad.

I support my clients with in-depth knowledge of leadership practices and human performance:

  • Leadership development
  • Culture change and change management
  • Behaviour change and human performance

My clients span many sectors: Hospitality & Tourism, Financial, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Automotive, Consumer Goods, as well as Higher Education, Government and Non-Profit organizations.

I thrive in and foster a work environment where each individual is encouraged to achieve results by challenging the status quo, continuously learning, and collaborating. I value the authenticity and diversity of team members. I embrace and demonstrate integrity, respect, and empathy in my leadership behaviours. I take my professional journey very seriously, with a healthy dose of humour.
