What you love about coaching: I love the authentic human connection that the coaching relationship creates. I love being fully present in the coaching moment. I love the endless learning within coaching and beautiful tension that comes with it.
Favourite coaching book: Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. It was introduced to me by my coach Gary Selick when I was at Electronic Arts in 2017 and it is the genesis point for my journey into coaching.
Your happy place: If I’m on a mountain or on the water, I’m pretty damn happy. That really comes together when we are at our place at Sun Peaks.
Punctuation mark that best represents your personality and why? © comes to mind. I have a big love of people, a big love for the fun and joy of life, and a big love for the work I get the privilege of doing at Fluency.
3 words friends would use to describe you: Authentic. Hilarious. Caring.
Advice to a new coach: Be comfortable in the uncomfortable space of learning. Be courageous. Be yourself. Be humble.
Why it’s important to you to be an ICF Vancouver member: Community matters. It’s what helps us stay grounded and not get stuck in our own heads. I appreciate being part of a community of thoughtful and passionate learners and practitioners.
Anything else you want us to know about you: I’m very tall. In the world of the pandemic, nobody knows this about me because I’m always on a screen and sitting down.
