"I empower artists, creative entrepreneurs and leaders in arts and culture to maximize their personal and professional potential."
How I Can Help
I empower you to grow your creative practice, small business and life from the inside out. As your coach, I work alongside you to facilitate your self-discovery, increase your confidence and refine your focus on what is most important in your life, your creative endeavours or business directions.
Every coaching relationship and session is uniquely created based on your needs and your desired outcome. I empower you to:
Define your creative dreams and goals and develop and implement effective strategies to achieve them;
Prioritize, focus and follow through to finish up projects that matter to you;
Build confidence and develop habits to support your creativity and success;
Cultivate professional and personal relationships that support your endeavours;
Understand and push past creative blocks and fears that stand in the way of your ambitions;
Figure out what’s next and go for it!
How I Coach
Our coaching conversations are focused and structured to support you to determine plans and take the actions that you decide are right for you. I work collaboratively with you to build our relationship based on trust, candour and action planning and ask questions to help you to identify blocks, challenges and opportunities in your life. My job is to support you to make better decisions and be stronger in your professional and personal relationships, provide a neutral ear, champion you and build in accountability to keep you on track to move forward toward your goals.
I offer customized coaching plans with the option of a set number of sessions or a monthly fee based on two sessions per month and I provide additional support via email or text between sessions if you have questions, want to share accomplishments or need additional encouragement.
I coach via phone, Skype or in person.

My professional experience has evolved over three decades of working in leadership positions in small business and non-profit arts organizations working side-by-side with entrepreneurs and artists to support them to strategize direction, negotiate collaborations and partnerships, realize creative projects and implement business plans. Over the course of my career, I have facilitated, collaborated with and mentored individuals to achieve hundreds of artistic projects and business initiatives.
