Course Leader

The Productivity with Purpose™ course was inspired by my journey through cancer in 2008. It draws upon my experience as a coach, yogi and technologist.

Power in Numbers

I have always enjoyed working with groups and have had many occasions to experience group dynamics both as a participant and a leader. As a project manager at Corel I had the opportunity to deliver live demonstrations and seminars across the United States and, since becoming a yoga teacher in 1999, have had the privilege to share my passion for health and wellness with thousands of students.

Growing Through Cancer

In the summer of 2008 I received some news that drastically rocked my world –  I was very unexpectedly diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. I put my coaching and consulting businesses and my yoga teaching on hold while I went through a challenging four rounds of chemotherapy and a major surgery. Overnight I went from having an active and busy life to spending hours in hospital beds, sometimes too nauseated and exhausted to do anything more than stare at the ceiling.

My circumstances provided me with the opportunity to really stop and look at my life. I fantasized about how my life would be different once I got my health back and committed to living a life that was aligned with my values and passions, and not settle for anything less.

I’m happy to report that 2008 ended on very positive note. Drawing on my own strength and determination with the support of many caring and talented family, friends and healers I ended the year cancer free.

Productivity with Purpose™ Course

I created the It’s About Time workshop as a way of sharing the many insights that my experience of growing through cancer has brought. The workshop draws upon my experiences as a professional coach, yoga teacher and technologist to deliver a truly unique and valuable experience. My sincere wish is that all participants leave the workshop feeling reconnected with their dreams and with a new set of tools for living a happy and fulfilling life. The course includes material from the It’s About Time™ course as well as content from my corporate offering, Productivity and Self Management.

Productivity and Self Management™ Course

Designed for a corporate environment, the Productivity and Self Management™ course provides participants with new methodologies and practical strategies to achieve optimum levels of productivity in both their personal and professional environments. The course has two distinct sections. The focus for the first section is on the theoretical practices and the self awareness/management that supports productivity. With a theoretical foundation in place, the second section delves into applying productivity principles, the effective use of technology and the cultivation of effective new habits.
