I call myself a coach, a speaker,
and a photographic artist.

So who am I?

I am an enthusiastic, get right to the heart of the matter coach helping small business owners figure out how to make more money, work less hours, and create the lifestyle and impact they want.
I love working with passionate, creative service-based freelancers, consultants, and entrepreneurs who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or plateaued trying to build their thriving and predictable business.

I am a stand for positivity, growth mindset, and possibilities. 

  • I love big words, efficient solutions, and the celebration and acknowledgment of others.
  • I am committed to inspiration AND implementation. 
  • My coaching superpowers are laser listening, radical reframing, and quality questioning. 
  • My personality superpowers are boundless positive energy and clear communication.

How I got here…

For most of the past two decades I was a professional photographer, photography instructor, and international photo tour leader.  I have experience with all the challenges of building a thriving freelance business in a rapidly changing creative industry. I have traveled all the ups and downs of doubt, overwhelm, failure and excitement along the way.
I am passionate about learning and rigorous in the pursuit of self-development ( that’s how I got the letters after my name).
One of only nine Certified Professional Photographers (CPP) in Canada and a Master of Photographic Arts (MPA) with the Professional Photographers of Canada, I’m still active in creating visual art and practicing the craft of photography.
My background in Financial Management and Marketing Communications has helped me recognize that traditional ways of doing business aren’t flexible enough or as helpful as having a simple, clear vision and specific next steps.

In today’s market things can change quickly.  It is important to stay nimble to stay profitable.

My approach to coaching…

Using a blend of transformational mindset tools and real world (modern) business strategies, I bring almost two decades of personal entrepreneurial experience as an award winning photographer, an education in traditional marketing and business strategies, and dozens of coaching success stories to every interaction. 
I work with my own coaches, participate in mastermind groups, and have invested thousands of hours in courses, seminars, webinars, and books. Most importantly, I’ve done the work.
I use modalities and distinctions from positive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and my own customized tools and systems to help creative, passionate people live their dreams.
It is this balance of practical knowledge and real world personal experience that my clients love the most. Well…that and my positivity and genuine enthusiasm to see them succeed.

I’m proud of the life I’ve created for myself and the dreams I’ve help make real.
