I was born in the heart of the continent and through my seminars, retreats and mentorships, I have been able to experience a diverse variety of struggles and situations. From coast to coast, from my client in Alaska to my live speaking seminars in Toronto, I have been able to build my knowledge and meet incredible people.
I hope to bring the heart of that collective knowledge and who I am to everyone I speak to.
