I am a passionate career literacy and gifted education advocate! If you like talking about either of my two passions, let’s chat. For the past few years, I have been a career and educational coach. Before that, I wore many hats experimenting with every opportunity that presented itself and throughout it all, my passion and commitment was to help others succeed and make a difference in the world. I have been working from home since 2013! In the past few years, I developed a private career coaching practice Right Career Fit, earned a Master of Education, a Doctor of Education as well as a career coaching certificate. The success of my private practice is a testament to my talent development and resource planning skills. I am a lifelong learner with a natural intellectual curiosity and I love challenges. Presenting and attending conferences across North America (in person and virtually) reflect my belief in the value of advocating for my two passions. I am also constantly looking for opportunities to influence public policy and increase support for the teaching and learning communities with a focus on inclusive career practices in Canada and globally. This is why I am a Chair/Board Director on various Boards. The past year has been a mix of significant losses and unforeseen challenges as well as amazing opportunities and unanticipated gains for many of us. I hope everyone is doing well...Despite all of this, each of us survived in our own way. Yet we continue to feel overwhelmed and concerned about the forces that the new year could bring. I encourage you to get involved in your communities, personal or professional. There is nothing like having the support of people who care about you during the ups and downs of this era. To close, I strive to be a spokesperson for the importance of career education and continue to work with a variety of media to create awareness of its value. I am on a mission to have #careerliteracy trend across social media. If you care to join me, let’s chat!
