Certified Executive Coach, Human Resources Leader, Resume & Interview Expert.

I am a(n):

Volleyball Player Cyclist Podcast Enthusiast Cat Foster Mom Amateur Chef

I can help you:

  • Interview Preparation.
  • Landing your Dream Job.
  • Developing skills in delivering tough feedback or navigating difficult conversations at work.
  • Co-creating a plan to address any challenge you are facing at work.
  • Executive Coaching - I'll put my coach hat on, to support you in tapping into your own potential.
  • HR Expertise - offers, separations, promotions, benefits, performance management, giving notice, changing teams, first time manager, learning and development, strengths based leadership, neuroscience at work, employment standards.
  • Working at a fast scaling start-up. Tap into my expertise from being the first HR Business Partner at Slack.

Why me:

I'd like to think that most folks walk away from working with me feeling like I'm not a traditional "HR" person. I'm fairly casual, use humour, and take a partnering approach that helps my clients feel comfortable first & foremost. I believe you do your best work when you feel like you can just be yourself.
