What is your name/nicknames?
My close friends call me The Little General, which is a comical nod to my ‘slightly’ bossy nature.
What do you do at Shift?
I have the privilege of running Shift, which basically means that I write the therapy protocols, head up the executive coaching arena, a guest spot on our Shift Show podcast, weigh in on the expansions and stuff for our software company, Shiftology, and am in the middle of co-authoring a book on our methodology. I wear a lot of hats but use a bunch of our executive coaching strategies to keep everything all (or mostly, lol) on point.
What are your academic credentials?
Formally, I have a Bachelor of Education and a Masters in Counseling Psychology. I also spend a significant amount of time researching happiness, organizational effectiveness and empowerment. On top of that, it’s a whole lot of life lessons in the business world.
Do you have any pets?
I have a Senegal parrot, Georgie, who is my favourite thing in life, and a Congo African Grey parrot named Gideon who is my baby. I am very interested in the similarities between the attachment behaviours of humans and parrots.
Who or what inspires you and why?
I am inspired by people living their ultimate, custom-built realities. I love to see an appetite for change and the outcomes created from a growth mindset.
