If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.....
— Joseph Campbell
Mentoring is a relationship between you and me in which I will share my knowledge, life experience and understanding to enable you in becoming more successful.

1. I have a broad range of skills through my experience as a lawyer, internal auditor, privacy specialist and fraud investigator.
2. I have held a number of senior leadership roles.
3. I have considerable knowledge and understanding of law, business, leadership, and managing teams.
4. I am an excellent communicator.
5. I quickly build trust.

Like a spiritual teacher of the highest order, a coach does not bring understanding to his clients. He leads others to the point of understanding.
Coaching is a creative conversation that inspires a client to overcome challenges, recognizes new possibilities, and achieves unforeseen success. Coaching offers the benefits of insight and growth to both parties. Its beauty comes from the partnership between equals that is based on mutual trust, respect, and a willingness to create a new future.
Coaching enables you to make sustained changes in your beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. These changes are most effectively managed by asking you questions.
The Advantages of Coaching
1. You are seen, heard and understood.
2. You are totally supported throughout your coaching journey.
3. You believe everything is possible.
4. You see yourself and your situation in a different way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

I am a Certified Information Privacy Professional/Canada. I was the Chief Privacy Officer for a $1.4 billion health insurance organization with approximately 750 employees. In this role I offered leadership, training and guidance on the protection of sensitive personal information and confidential information. During my tenure I created a comprehensive privacy program which was very effective at protecting the sensitive health and financial information of our members.
I have been a practicing lawyer for almost 30 years. As in-house legal counsel I provided advice to the CEO, Executive and management of a health insurance organization on contractual, privacy, health, insurance and corporate matters.
As Chief Audit Executive I had a comprehensive understanding of the organization's risks, controls, strategy, industry and regulatory environment. I managed a team of 11 internal auditors who evaluated and improved the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes. The team also assisted in the prevention, detection and deterrence of health claims fraud. I presented on a regular basis to different Board committees, including the Audit Committee.
