My Coaching Philosophy
My perspective is grounded in the concept of resilience and driven by the belief that oppression continues to impact the daily lives of Indigenous women.
We can journey together to:
1. Overcome our internal and external barriers.
2. Continually learn and grow, no matter the mistakes we make, our age or circumstance.
3. Communicate in ways that help us be seen, heard, and valued.
4. Be empowered by choosing wise role models and mentors.
5. Develop our leadership skills in service of our families, workplaces, and communities.
It is my passion to use my leadership experiences, coaching, training, Indigenous Studies expertise, and work and life experience to support Indigenous women.
As an Indigenous Wolastoqwik woman I grew up in my First Nation community on the east coast of Canada. I understand the challenges of modern, Indigenous women. I have lived in or around urban centres for most of my adult life and have a busy family life with a young son and a professional husband.
My journey has taken me from being a national youth leader, in 2001 I was elected to attend the UNESCO meeting in Paris. I’ve held an elected position on Town Council in my community in rural Alberta as well as was appointed to one of the province’s First Nations women’s committee.
My education and training include Coaching Certification of Erickson Coaching International, an Adult Education certificate, a BA and an Honours degree in Indigenous Studies, and some leadership certificates. My eagerness to learn earned me bursaries to help pay for my education. In July 2018, I will start my Masters of Adult Education program.
Most of my employment positions have involved the support and advancement of Indigenous peoples.
The content of my community workshops and training include parenting, literacy, essential skills, leadership, and cultural awareness to a diverse clientele.
I am ready to hear from you!
