As an executive and leadership coach, I specialize in helping high potential and emerging leaders build leadership capacity and live better lives. 

Drawing upon over forty years of experience as an executive search consultant, business owner and corporate director; I bring my clients dedicated experience of working with Boards of Directors, senior and emerging executives across a multitude of industries, domestically and internationally.

My business experience includes executive search in Calgary and Houston where my practice focused on Board, CEO and senior executive recruitment in the Oil and Gas and Power industries in North America, Europe and South America. Prior to entering the executive search industry I worked in the Oil and Gas Services industry.

A graduate from Gonzaga University with a Bachelors of Business Administration (Marketing), I have been active in my community, having served as Board member for Junior Achievement and the Calgary Philharmonic as well being a volunteer for the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter. In 2017, I received my Coach Certification through the Hudson Institute of Coaching.

I work as a coach with established and emerging leaders. They describe me as a “trusted and thoughtful partner”. 

A native of Calgary, Alberta, I travel extensively for my clients, and work remotely via videoconference.
