Fun and energizing are words to describe how I am...Inspiring Awesomeness! Enabling Results!!

At age 51, I was an accomplished and successful professional, a CPA, CA…I achieved success, obtained promotion after promotion, only to discover that I was becoming less and less ME. There was a little voice inside of me that was crying out: “help”..which became the catalyst of my amazing self-discovery journey.

I’m here with deliberate focus on huge value-add through my coaching style: “backbone and heart”, an approach to push my clients to extraordinary excellence, beyond their comfort zone and into their growth zone. Along with this, my coach approach shines the leadership spotlight from the inside out. As one of my favourite wisdom gurus, Stephen Covey, teaches personal victories precede public victories. This is the base for our ultimate effectiveness.

My business skills of 25 years, my business acumen and financial expertise as a CPA, CA, PCC my passion for developing strong leaders, and my certification as a executive coach complete my toolkit that my clients deeply value.


    Executives often find it ‘lonely at the top’, which can get in the way of optimizing their awesomeness.  My clients experience the profound results, the wonderful impact of having the spotlight shone on their greatness! The entire coaching journey is co-created with my clients…with them owning the content and direction and outcomes…and me providing the safe container, the safe space, the context.


    Business leaders grow in confidence as they are grow their skills toolkit with sound financial & business insights.

    Business & Financial Coaching & Collaboration is a fusion of the best of me…in service of others…assisting with technical financial aspects (e.g. cashflow forecasting) and driving accountability throughout the organization. Recognizing that true leadership and results starts with personal victories before public victories (Stephen Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People).



Through creating a strong bond of common future-focused ‘North-Star Visualizations’, a common definition of exponential success. And by striking the right balance between a structured and a free-flowing approach.
