About Thrive


Thrive Training & Coaching exists to inspire, support and educate helpers, healers, educators, caregivers, change agents and leaders to thrive while serving the growth and well-being needs of others, and to succeed,  individually and collectively, while working in often high stress, high care, high change and high trauma work.

Core Beliefs

A thriving workplace is where people want to be and do their best.

Thriving professionals are engaged, inspired and provide quality service delivery to the people and causes they serve.

What makes Thrive Training & Coaching programs and services unique?

I know you have many training and coaching professionals to choose from when you set out to contract for training, professional development and coaching for you and your organization, so what makes me and Thrive unique?


1) Teaching + Coaching Style

Thrive training and coaching programs are engaging, informative and fun.  Research shows that we learn better when we are enjoying ourselves.  We are more able to stretch out of our comfort zones, learn and take risks when we feel seen, heard and supported.  Through storytelling, information sharing, practical tools, self-reflection, and meaningful conversations – leaders and others are supported to learn and grow.  I believe everyone should leave a training or coaching session with something of value that can be used to create a positive impact in their lives and work!


2) Experience + Credentials + Kindness

I bring over 25 years of unique combined experience as a Registered Social Worker, a Professional Co-Active Coach, an organizational health consultant, adult educator, curriculum writer, facilitator and speaker allowing me to offer your organization a diverse range of knowledge, credentials, and experience.  I bring a compassionate and empowering approach to my work ensuring my clients, individuals, teams and organizations, receive respect and kindness; two virtues that go a long way in bringing out the best in us all.


3) Alignment + Impact

I am committed to serving organizations and groups where I believe I can have the greatest positive impact through providing learning opportunities and support that will have resonance and value for clients.  I am best suited to work with healthcare, social service, human service, crisis response, and education sectors, non-profits, government and purpose-driven businesses that serve the greater good in some way. I work best with caregiving organizations and professionals who make a difference.


4) Professional Fees

I provide all Thrive programs and services directly and as such my professional fees are accessible and fair since there is not a large corporate infrastructure that has to be supported within my fee structure.  Therefore, these savings are passed along to you – allowing your organization and employees to get great value, high quality, professional training and coaching services at an affordable rate.


5) Collaborative Network

I have a wide network of expert consultants, trainers and colleagues who I connect with and draw upon for support and collaboration.  I have the ability to pull together a team of professionals to help meet your specific scope of learning needs that might exceed my own capacity or expertise.  In other words, while I am an independent consultant, trainer, coach and speaker – I am part of a larger group of professionals and we often collaborate together to meet client goals and also to offer peer support to one another.


6) Leadership + Self-Care By Example

Leadership is about people and potential, including our own. Great leaders inspire and empower their people (staff, colleagues) and those they serve (clients, students, patients, etc.). You can count on me to infuse inspiration and support into all that I do when serving your organization – in other words, I am committed to leading by example and I ensure self-care is a top priority in my life and work.  I believe caring and integrity are leadership skills. I believe people want to succeed, be well and make a difference.
