Uncovering my personality type helped me to understand myself better and be true to myself. The most empowering and liberating moment was when I stepped into my power and claimed my strength to navigate in a loud world. I found the right tools to make my personality type work for me and not against me.

Before becoming a quiet leadership coach, I was successful in the corporate world and served clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. I loved accessing my creativity and intuition, problem-solving, leading teams and building strategies. But other parts of my job took its toll on my energy: constant business meetings, fast-paced working environment, long working hours and being around people all day with no solitude time at all.

Honouring my desire for deeper fulfillment, I made the difficult decision to quit my job and embark on a voyage of self-discovery. Finding out who I was and what I was capable of giving me the confidence to pursue my coaching certification and change careers. 

Now, I am a Quiet Leadership Coach - I coach clients from all around the world with different backgrounds, cultures and industries, I focus on uncovering what is true and unique about my clients and assists them in building on their key strengths.

Additionally, I teach business, leadership and personal development courses at various colleges, runs multiple mastermind groups, leadership roundtables and facilitates corporate training and seminars. I'm former Board of Directors of the Vancouver International Coach Federation (ICF).

I am also the founder of the Vancouver Quiet Leadership community and Meetup group where I host monthly events to support leadership among introvert personality types.
