Doubt everything, find your own light. These are the words written on a plaque that I recently purchased and they exactly state my take on life. Ever since I can remember, I have persistently questioned the status quo, forever been sceptical of "the way things have always been done," and constantly blazed my own trail.
After taking various career paths that spanned many decades, I found my true calling. Under the governing body of Centers for Spiritual Living. I completed a six-year intensive ministerial program with curriculum based on spiritual and personal development, conscious leadership, living mindfully, pastoral counselling, philosophy, epistemology, ontology, cosmology, organizational management and volunteer coordination. I am currently affiliated with the Centre for Spiritual Living Edmonton-Metro, a vibrant, warm, healthy, harmonious and welcoming spiritual community.
My extensive public speaking experience: I've delivered motivational keynotes and presented hundreds of personal and spiritual development workshops to thousands of participants at conferences, seminars, staff retreats and teachers' conventions in western Canada and the Northwest Territories. I have also offered countless workshops for the general public and I organized, hosted and facilitated workshops at six wellness weekends for women in the Edmonton area.
Prior to my speaking and writing career, and my public service as a Marriage Commissioner, I owned and operated a food processing company, was property manager of a portfolio of rental properties, did contract work as a bookkeeper and raised two amazing children.
In my leisure hours, I enjoy working out at the gym, spending time with family and friends, photography, entertaining, golfing, reading uplifting books, taking long walks with the dog, practicing yoga, meditating, music, appreciating silence, trying my hand at a plant-based diet, and sometimes playing the violin.
Integrity, honesty and authentic communication are very important to me and I do my best to bring my Highest Self and a positive attitude with me, wherever I go.
