Tell us about yourself
I am a certified Spiritual and Life Coach (CSC, CLC), a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and a licensed Life and Health Insurance Advisor. I am an awakened soul, humanitarian, and philanthropist. Prior to coaching, I spent 25+ years in the corporate world in various roles:
Most of the first decade was spent working at the Ontario Medical Association. The others were spent in the Banking and Insurance Industry:
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce
Sun Life Financial
Desjardins Financial Security
and Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network.
From a very young age, growing up, many would confide in me and find support, strength, warmth, and peace in doing so. Little did I realize how powerful and positive of an impact this bond had on their lives. Similarly, by not knowing or having that sense of awareness, I ignored many calls along my journey. The calls became so much louder that they no longer went unnoticed. After much hesitation and deliberation, I was forced to turn inward for answers. I was pleasantly delighted with a beautiful awakening to my higher purpose; hence, Goddess of Light Spiritual Life Coaching, Inc. was born. Today, I happily dedicate my life to helping others to find their inner light and support them to emerge and shine brightly.
Leveraging my vast experience and gifts, coupled with my passion and a body, mind, and spirit approach, I partner with clients to identify, develop, and make healthy, purposeful transformations in both their personal and professional lives with intentional outcomes. I meet clients where they are and, with a laser-sharp focus, provide a safe space for clarity, direction, support, and accountability to get them to where they want to be.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I find immense fulﬁllment in what I do, and it is an honor to guide my clients through their beautiful path of awakening the dormant potential in their lives. Taking a client from their darkness to even a spectrum of light brings is a great accomplishment for me as a Spiritual Life Coach.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
As the Founder and Director and a Coach, one of the hardest things is protecting my energy. There are many hats to be worn, and it is paramount to my health and being to handle this aspect with care.
