MEET LISA

Hi there,

 

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll tell you a little about myself but I'd rather hear more about you so I hope you'll drop me a line.  Everybody has a story. 

 

I discovered coaching after years work in the 'real world' and soul-searching and knowing I was destined to do something more meaningful than what I was doing.  I always knew I wanted to work in “People Development” and finally took the leap into the unknown and landed in a place far better than I could have imagined – founding and operating a successful coaching practice and helping others reach their goals. 

 

Growing up I was fortunate to have supportive parents and friends who encouraged me in times of uncertainty but in hindsight I wish I had someone else in my corner who I could talk to about hopes and dreams and fears without worrying about what they'd think of me.  Now I know this person is a coach.

Spirited, direct, caring, candid, trustworthy and wise.  These are a few words to describe me and my style of coaching.  I bring lots of energy and enthusiasm to my coaching and believe anything IS possible. If you’re looking for results in your life, are committed to doing the work required to achieve those results and you want someone in your corner to encourage, support and give you a gentle kick in the butt, then I may be the coach for you. 

"The coaching process with Lisa has been a key success factor in striving to achieve some of my career goals.  Lisa makes me accountable to me and helps me to stay motivated even when facing difficult choices." JM

 

 

 

In addition to being in private practice, I work for EPCOR as a Leadership Coach/Talent Management Consultant and trainer. I am a certified graduate of The Coaches Training Institute in 2001 and completed certification of the Royal Roads Excelerator coaching model in 2014.  In addition to being certified in two coaching models, I am also certified to facilitate Crucial Conversations, Strengths Deployment Inventory and am PCC accredited through the International Coaching Federation.  Prior to joining EPCOR I enjoyed seven years as a Coach and Career Consultant for the Alberta Government.  Before finding my joy in the Coaching profession, I enjoyed a successful career in mid and senior level marketing positions for Labatt Breweries, Stantec and Alberta Cancer Foundation.  I live in Edmonton, Canada and have lived in Vancouver and Japan.  I am serving my second term as an active Board member of the International Coach Federation - Edmonton Chapter.
