    Provost Accreditation, Belonging & Community Engagement Courses Taught: IP-510 Motivation & Values; RC-571 Qualitative Methods

    I have a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership & Policy, both from the University of British Columbia. I have worked in the post-secondary sector for over 30 years, with extensive experience in the fields of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and student development/retention programs through a social determinants of health lens. I am also an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF), trained from the Faculty of Coaching at ADLER. I am currently the Provost and a faculty member at ADLER, and on faculty with the International Committee of Adlerian Summer Schools & Institutes (ICASSI). I have a private practice as a trauma-informed mental fitness coach, and integrate Adlerian and Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Neuroscience approaches in working with my clients. I work primarily with women entrepreneurs, leaders, and emerging leaders, particularly from under-representative groups. I am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and serve on the Director’s Forum with the Graduate School Alliance for Education in Coaching (GSAEC). I also sit as a Council of Ambassador with the ICF Foundation.
