I was born in a small town in rural Alberta, Canada. I grew up in the country with horses, motorbikes, riding lawn mowers, barns, and chores. This made me a natural “get things done” problem solver, like figuring out how to most efficiently cut acres of grass, troubleshoot an engine breakdown, and how to lead — and be led by — a horse.
I’m also the offspring of two entrepreneurs that divorced when I was very young. I’ve had to work very hard to overcome the personal challenges that on one end of the spectrum made me a high achiever and on the other end, riddled with anxiety and fear that impeded success in other areas. The combination of being an empath and having a passion for things greater than myself is the base which has made me highly successful in deep listening with a quick ability to identify gaps and make connections.
