Beautiful woman, you are supposed to achieve your dreams. 

 

Intuitively you know this is only possible when you follow your heart. I know the agony of not listening, because for most of my life, I was too afraid to.

Although I grew up in a good family, I’ve always been highly sensitive, absorbing the emotions and needs of everyone around me. By 9 I made the decision to consciously shut my heart as a way to defend myself against feeling so much pain and overwhelm. And so began the misery of being disconnected from my truth.

Because I was scared to be myself, I was drawn to male-dominated industries as a means of accessing power. First professional sports, and then banking. I achieved a life on the outside that looked good – a 6 figure job, gorgeous apartment, fashionable wardrobe, and a hot boyfriend, yet I was miserable inside. While I appreciate that those decisions enabled me to learn about money, I had drifted further and further away from who I really was.

At 40 I had a powerful wake up call at a kundalini retreat in Bali. It was time to face my past and deeply heal. I needed to surrender all of my defences. I had to learn how to be with all of the emotions I had repressed throughout my life. It was time to really question what I believed about myself. I released a ton of baggage and began to feel my essence and worth emerge from within. For the first time in 31 years, I felt like myself. 

Leading up to my personal healing journey, I had been in the financial industry for over a decade. I always knew I wanted to help people and had been studying financial planning. But I had grown disillusioned with many practices and products in the industry which I felt were overly complicated, stuffy, unnecessary, and at times, unethical. It also seemed that no one was addressing the emotional factors behind how people managed money, or focussing on teaching the foundational skills like debt management, budgeting and saving. I had no answer for all of this at the time, so quit the course and continued studying as a hobby.

After coming home from Bali, everything clicked together. In order to be empowered, you have to be motivated to find the truth. You have to be willing to question the external status quo (including conventional financial education) and your internal beliefs and fears. What underpins both is worth. When you have strong self-worth, you love yourself AND you invite in wealth, not by doing something against who you really are, but in alignment with your deepest self.

5 things you didn’t know about me:

 

I once spent a day on a real Canadian Navy ship and shot a 50 calibre rifle (into the ocean!) as part of HR diversity training. Yes it was scary, but I felt protected by our amazing men and women. I'm passionate about supporting these noble humans to re-integrate back into civilian life once they leave service. Please hire our veterans!

My heart is split between two countries at opposite ends of the earth: Canada and Australia. Although I'm a proud Canuck, I lived in Australia for 5 years. Shrimp on the barbie anyone?

I'm a hockey nut. My first job was with the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club. Like pinch me! In my interview, my boss asked, "why do you want to work here?" I looked at him like Jennifer Grey first looked at Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. She said; "I carried the watermelon" and I said; "because it's the Leafs!!" Magically, my enthusiasm worked!

I've interviewed over 10,000 job candidates in my HR banking career. Hiring stats if you're curious: 10%. My number one tip is to be clear on what lights you up, go for that, and let your passion shine bright!

If I didn't do what I do now, I would have wanted to become a professional dancer. The furthest I ever took it was auditioning and appearing on a Canadian TV show called Electric Circus in the 90's.
