Ever since I was a little girl I have had a deep rooted calling of purpose, a stirring within me to find what I was meant for, feeling deeply the connection to something that was greater than myself.
Horses were not in my upbringing, I didn't grow up on a farm or in a rural setting. And yet my passion for them was very apparent from a young age, and as of age 6, each summer was spent at riding camps. Horses became and have always been the lighthouse that has guided my life. I followed that passion into a career as a horse breeder, which lead to my journey into coaching and subsequently finding a way to partner with them even more deeply. It was during my training as an equine-guided facilitator that I found my calling on this earth.
As a young woman I struggled deeply with finding my authentic voice and the bravery to hold it. I always felt somewhat odd. Pulled by a desire to connect and live more deeply through my spirit, I was often confronted with fears and projections of being too out there, too woo, and too sensitive. It took me years to find the courage to step out boldly in the world to share my message and my authenticity of magic, woo, and inspiration through the deep relationship and majesty of the horse.
It wasn't until I found the gift in my wounds, my sensitivities, and my uniqueness that the success, fulfillment, and acceptance I was seeking entered into my life.
I have stepped into my role and calling as a coach, guide and equine facilitator. I hold powerful spaces for my clients - who are coaches, creators, magic makers and purpose seekers - to step more boldly and brilliantly into their own calling and natural impact in the world. To help them feel ready and empowered to bravely claim their destined success and fulfillment through their purpose.
I know the journey to find our own acceptance and mastery in what we are called to hold space for in the world and the bravery to hold it not just for ourselves but others. We were not born to just exist within ourselves, we were born to dream, to lead, to share our medicine and to allow ourselves to give permission to our callings, our desires and to the evolution of our own self-mastery.
Who am I?
On a more personal level I am the eldest of 4 girls born in Montreal and raised in beautiful Dundas, Ontario. I have been a pursuer of purpose my entire life and my journey has taken me across my native country of Canada 7 times, finally settling in the beauty of British Columbia, Canada. I share my life with my two dog companions, Luca and Odin, and herd of 16 rescue horses. I spend my leisure time soaking up the magic of my land, being active and enjoying the company of my friends and family. The simple brilliance of life and living one of purpose, on a land that calls deeply to my soul, is what lights me up the most - and of course the joy of having horses alongside with me!
