For the past 10 years, I have spent my days at Bloom Business Development, supporting inspired, determined and talented leaders in countless industries to clarify their purpose while cultivating the change that matters to them.Success means something different to everyone. Many of the people who come to me for coaching are ready to extract their own definition of success from the one that was imposed on them since childhood.It is my mission to support people to flip over the scattered puzzle pieces of their lives. Just like a puzzle, when you lock a few key pieces into place in your life, the waves of momentum start flowing and that is when the real fun begins.
I believe people need to slow down to go really fast …. on purpose. To think about the small stuff, so they can realize their wildest and biggest dreams. To live their purpose.
Work strategically, play hard and do good. All non-negotiable.

I had recently turned 39 and as I entered my 40th year I wanted to push myself to reach my higheset potential and become the greatest version of myself possible. I knew I needed a coach to help get me there (since all of the greatest and most successful people in the world have one) and it was such a natural and easy fit to choose Lisa so I didn’t hesitate to hire her. I was also exiting a business I had co-owned for 10 years and I wanted some clarity on what the next decade of my life could look like personally and professionally.
Working with Lisa as my coach, I have learned that reaching my highest potential is not some far out there concept, she is already alive and well within me and I am already living as the best version of myself. This has given me the clarity and strength to maximize each day and keep living life to the fullest. I am showing up each day with confidence, taking action that supports my targets for growing my business while prioritizing personal expansion to support me vibrating on the highest level.
This process has definitely supported my desire to attract and manifest the life of my dreams, achieve clarity and connect with my strength. Receiving a much needed boost of confidence has helped me overcome any fears, as I blast through obstacles.
Also the power of a morning routine, positive words and affirmations (such as money flows like a river into my bank account!) and my script that I listen to day and night have been amazing tools for me.
Working with Lisa has been a true pleasure, she has helped me uncover the confidence, clarity and strength inside me enabling me to maximize each day and keep living life to the fullest.
A born and raised BC girl, I feel like a kid in a candy store, living, working and building empires (we all have one), while living in this coastal paradise here in Vancouver. I work with clients anywhere there is an internet connection and also in- person in Port Moody, BC.My education, training and diverse experience have allowed me to support micro businesses who are not in a position to hire a full suite of business partners and expensive consultants.
My diverse and unique expertise positions me to make a real impact with the direction of my clients business.
In what feels like a past life now, I enjoyed an adventurous career in television. As the GM at a boutique television production company, I received a sink or swim on the job MBA and oversaw every division of our rapidly growing organization.
I was beyond blessed to indulge my creative side and produce, host and distribute hundreds of episodes of tv for broadcasters around the globe with series like Wings Over Canada, Discovering Great Towns and Canadian Biography Moments.
Interviewing people from all walks of life was a life-changing experience. It opened my eyes to one of my core strengths, a strength I now use every day at work. Complete strangers regularly apologize to me for sharing the intimate details & struggles of their lives shortly after we meet.
One day I had an a-ha moment as Oprah likes to say, realizing what a gift and honour that is.
I realized that this isn’t something that happens in every day conversation for most people. My friends call me the deep one and tell me that they need me so they can have real & honest conversations.
The trust my clients place in me and the courage and vulnerability they show is a huge honour that I don’t take lightly.
My role in supporting people’s empire building is a privilege, which is why I am very selective about who I work with. Your vision matters and you need to build a team around you who are 100% on-board with your vision. I work with a lot of solopreneurs and micro-business owners who need help growing their business and they are tired of spinning their wheels.
I believe the personal shows up in the professional, and in the spirit of being vulnerable, here are a few random facts about me and my life.
- I began my yoga practice in 1993 and plan to one day take my yoga teacher training to further deepen my practice in a tropical setting when I can immerse myself in an intensive training.
- Each morning I thank my bed for a good nights sleep, which leads to other thoughts of gratitude as I enter into a 15 minute-ish morning ritual; my days are so much better when I take his time in the morning to set intentions and manifest my desires. (CONFESSION: some morning I miss it and I am reminded all day long why it’s best not to miss it!)
- I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 2013 and it has created a revolution of connection, meaning and happiness in my life.
- I slather essential oils on my feet each night … and my families feet … whether they want me to or not. Please let me know if I smell like I poured the entire collection of DõTerra over my head!!
- I am a “mompreneur” who understands that no one works harder than women and absolutely no one works harder than a mother. #strongertogether
- I am blessed with two daughters, an incredible husband and a Maine Coon named Max who is quite the ladies man.
- I am deeply spiritual and have enjoyed reading Tarot & Oracle cards for over two decades now, constantly re-affirming my beliefs in the power of The Law of Attraction.
- I have an irrational fear of stairs and geese
- I support people to sit at all the tables of their lives, from the kitchen table to the corporate boardroom, feeling comfortable, confidant and knowing their voice matters.
I believe that as we give we shall receive. I am a Mentor with Forum for Women’s Enterprise (FWE), lead Mindset Workshops for Dress for Success and donate Personal & Professional Transformation Coaching packages, sit on the Fundraising Committee for Ruben’s Shoes and have recently been invited to sit on the Women in Business Committee with the Tri-Cities Cities Chamber of Commerce for 2019.
Rather than telling you about my coaching practice, I will leave that to a few of my cherished clients, who have graciously shared their personal stories of investing in coaching or workshops over on my testimonial page.
Why do I do this work?
My passion stems from my own life experience which has been full of many teachers I would not have chosen but in the end were exactly who I needed.
Limiting beliefs are powerful. We all have them and man oh man, change is hard!! The feeling I get when I witness the spark of confidence light a fire in someone who has been struggling is the best. I do this work because it feels good and right in my soul.
Once you learn the full extent of your capacity and power, I like to call it magnificence, it can never be unlearned.
I look around the world and feel a great duty to continue to be a part of the change. The woes needs leaders, empowered people who are creating prosperity and lighting sparks in others. We are like candles, when we share our light we create more light and our own burns even brighter.
We must use our voice. We must share our gifts.
