I am a Certified Integral Coach™ living in Vancouver. My passion for human development is borderline obsessive. My calling is aptly expressed when working with others around their deepest ache and that which matters most. I am interested in community, in bringing people together to share in and support each other around both the ordinariness and profundity of life’s journey.
I am a mother of a gorgeous little boy for whom my most precious energy and best work is reserved. The rest of what I’ve got is up for grabs, come and get some at firstname.lastname@example.org. In terms of writing here at Beams and Struts, I’m most interested in exploring what it takes to consciously evolve individually and collectively and I revel in challenging our confounding culture. I really dig writing and love it here, being part of this family is an honour.
