Career & Leadership Coach
Be the badass you were too scared to be yesterday!
I’m a young professional just like you, out here trying to make a difference. I started my career as a motivational speaker for a non-profit and then a move across the country led me to the exciting world of tech. Working in startups was an amazing way to start my career. The fast-paced culture pushed me to learn quickly, adapt to an ever-changing environment, and see companies grow and evolve before my eyes. After 5 years designing sales strategies, developing teams, and growing revenue at some of Vancouver’s most successful tech companies, I found myself wondering: what comes next? Do I want to work in sales forever. A short trip to Mexico City helped me realize that I wasn’t headed down a career path that aligned with my values of growth, freedom, adventure, and helping others. I needed to make a change, and I was ready. When I’m not working with my badass clients, you can find me making friends with people with sailboats, making friends with people with dogs, and traipsing around town on my bike with my nerdy helmet.
I enrolled in Royal Roads University’s graduate program in Executive Coaching and started working towards by International Coach Federation credentials this year. Since then I’ve been working with young professionals, from junior lawyers to tech executives to new managers at non-profits, to bring clarity, confidence, and energy into their careers and lives. I bring a natural curiosity, zeal, frankness, and empathy to all my conversations to help my clients cut through the bullshit and make changes they’ll never regret.

Tips before the call:
Take some time to think about what's really not working for you right now. Sometimes we know when we're not feeling our best, but we're not sure why. The more clarity you have around this when we chat, the easier it'll be to establish if and how I can help.
I will send you some initial homework before our first call and get you thinking in a new way!
“From our first meeting Alex really made me think about what it was I wanted to do, structuring my goals in a way that I’d never thought of before, helping me focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve them. The weekly sessions reignited a dwindling self-belief and hunger that inspired me to challenge my beliefs in a positive way. Until the sessions, I was so focussed on how to get there I never thought if this was really what I wanted. Subsequent sessions seemed to challenge my beliefs in a positive way and at every step of the way the solutions came from me. Not once did Alex say that I should do this or that I should do that. This has helped with my confidence in a range of different situations. This experience with Alex as my coach has been an honour, a gift.” — Jessy S, Non Profit Leader
“At various points in our lives, we meet people who touch us so deeply that we are changed forever. For me, Alex was one of these people. Alex is a highly skilled coach, a ferocious leader, and a fiercely kind human who embodies her own values so passionately that I feel challenged and inspired to do the same after each session. In our sessions, she asks me the questions and helps me build the tools to do and be my best. If you are truly ready to start making big strides toward building the career or life you want, Alex will help you get there. For me, it has been a remarkable journey.” — Vivienne D, Speaker, Activist, Entrepreneur
