Welcome to my passion project and professional mission! I set out several years ago to educate and inform all sectors and industries on how to create trauma-informed and psychologically safe workplaces, systems and people.
Why? I realized in my experience working in addiction recovery, in prisons, and with adults with low literacy, people without homes and individuals living in poverty is that neuroscience has not caught up with the systems that we live, work and play in. Educating others on the WHY, became my passion and mission. The neuroscience of stress, trauma, leadership and change is the root of creating safe and effective change for Organizations.
I have worked for 15 years in community service, coaching and mentoring, leadership and with our most vulnerable populations. I am a Psychological First Aid Instructor through the Canadian Red Cross and have an education in Business Administration, Human Resources, and Labour Relations.
I work with public and private school divisions, community adult learning programs, College and University Institutions, the private sector and community service agencies in customized professional development, learning and development and train the trainer course design and facilitation.
My work will motivate, and engage to create a foundation for communication and improved performance, innovation and connection within individuals, teams and communities.
