I worked in multi-national corporations for over 20 years and then struck out on my own as a marketing consultant for small businesses. While it was always evident to me that mental health played an important role in the success of both the individual and the organization, it was only when I experienced my own mental health challenges that realized how essential it is.
Becoming an integrative mental health coach and educator has deepened my understanding of people and how I can best serve them. My role as Program Director for the Nickerson Institute allows me opportunities to support the students' personal and professional growth.

I started my career in packaged goods marketing in Toronto which really immerses you in a strategic approach to marketing. My career took me to many industries and corporate cultures, from Canada to the USA and back again. I worked in small start-ups and large organizations and worked in good cultures and toxic ones! Each team of people that you work with gives you new learning opportunities - what you want to do more of and what not to do.
Learning is a passion of mine. I earned my Doctorate in Business Administration while working full time. I am curious about what makes us tick, how do we encourage potential customers to buy, how do we build a better business.
As a marketing consultant, I encourage business owners to focus on strategy first, to look at their business objectively, and to help them define 'what does success look like for you?'. It is not always about getting rich or famous or both - instead it is about pursuing their passion or finding personal fulfillment.
