“I went to Katy to seek unbiased business advice and work on branding. I got that and a whole lot more. She asked questions that showed me how to look at my pitfalls in new ways. The answers always lie within if you know what to ask. This provided clarity and helped me assess not just my business but my life as a whole. I am confident with my directions and haven’t been a more balanced and happier person. She is the best and I highly recommend her.”

"A lot can and will be gained by hiring a Life Coach. If you question whether or not it’s worth the investment ask yourself if you had a terminal disease would you pay for the treatment? That is how you must think of this: as a terminal disease, because without treatment for self-loathing, sadness, frustration, defeat, or depression what kind of life are you living? Negative thoughts of any kind can be detrimental to ones health so invest in your future with a Life Coach - you will not regret it. There is way more to gain from this than you could possibly imagine!"

"I was getting my daily fix of the Facebook feed when I came across a review of a Life Coach. I have never heard of a Life Coach; however after reading the comments of this client, I felt the need to look into it further and wow, was I ever in for a life changing process! I live a busy life, I am proud of my career and in the midst of the height of it I met my life partner. I was lost on how to balance my home life and my career while still taking care of myself. I reached out to Katy and got exactly what I needed. It was about holding me accountable to my own ambitions and goals. An outsider to remind me the value of life and what not to sacrifice and when to compromise, a person to generate thought starters and make me take a step back and realize the decisions I need to make."
I highly recommend Katy, she is a true coach.

Welcome! I am so glad you found me and let’s imagine you and I are sitting down for a cup of java to chat.
What do I do? I’m a Certified Professional Coach. I help people get to the core of what drives them so they can live brighter and more fulfilling lives. I believe that to live a life that creates meaning and fulfillment, we need to start on the inside.
See, there was a time when I found myself searching for the happier me, seemingly contained in a magical box with pixie dust. I believed I’d only find it after the next bend in the road. But my inner gremlins kept putting detours in the way. One day, it finally dawned on me that my happiness wasn’t in the future or down the road. In fact, my happiness had been within my possession all along! I simply hadn’t been able to see it. Finding me was pivotal in this process.
I became a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) because I wanted to help people. And I wanted to make a difference for people in profound and deeply meaningful ways. I wanted to package my gifts, training and expertise in such a way that I could make this world a better place, one person at a time.
And yes, I’m fully qualified. I graduated from the International Coach Academy (www.icoachacademy.com) in March of 2010 as a Certified Professional Life Coach. I also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree (2002). For me, learning is ongoing so I continue to build on my credentials as a coach and regularly pursue personal and professional development.
I’m also a family girl. A lucky mom to three healthy children: ages 11, 14, and 16, I’m 18+ years married to my best friend. We currently live in British Columbia where we are surrounded by great friends, friendly people and beautiful country.
There you have it. My story. Now let’s chat because I can’t wait to hear yours!
