Conscious-minded living and business ignites a spark in me that has continually fuels my vision for positive change. Of course, I didn’t realize that in my younger years!
It seemed that from a young age I didn’t know what I was looking for or what I wanted out of my life. I went to university, travelled the world and climbed the corporate ladder. It wasn’t until I’d worked for 10-years in the world of corporate finance and marketing that I came face-to-face with the fact that somehow along the way, I had become truly and profoundly stagnant. I hadn’t listened to my inner voice and as a result, my life lacked heart somehow. I was a woman with endless ambition, but no real inspiration or purpose. As a farmer’s daughter, I understood from an early age how to work hard, apply myself, be honest and be proud of my work. Yet, life had a way of wearing me down and making me tired. I had been through a divorce, dealt with health issues, was in the wrong career and had witnessed corporate dealings that left a scar on my sense of trust and concern about lack of ethics. My confidence was eroding and my inner fire and willfulness became dull and tired. I was stuck! Not a stranger to change, I knew I desperately needed to transform my life – but intentionally this time!
Being stuck created a thirst in me to understand change. I returned to school and completed my Master’s thesis on “People & Change Dynamics in Business.” I studied mediation, conflict resolution, organizational development, marketing and went on to become a Certified Change Expert. When I redirected my focus towards my own personal development, my sense of purpose and a renewed trust inspired me to be a consultant and trainer who would teach small and big companies about creating an ethical and thriving business. Not long after I became a Master Practitioner of Clinical Counselling-Supervisor and Private Practice Business Trainer. I am currently registered with two national licensing associations for counselling therapists in Canada.
I believe that in the amazing exploration of life, our intuition will tell the thinking mind where to go next. The birth of Global Alignment has been the pivotal piece of the puzzle that I felt was missing in my career. The concept of conscious living and business spoke to the absolute CORE of who I was, and who I am still becoming. It was the perfect integration between my loves of personal growth and professional development, between structure and spontaneous creativity and between the mind and heart! As I created our team, I realized just how many people felt the same way I did. I am excited to be part of a new mindset of “gracious living” and “mindful business” that have truly emerged! For more than a decade, Global Alignment has been helping individuals and professionals in private practice businesses fuel greatness into their own lives and careers. We are living our inspired purpose- by helping others find and create the own!
