About Me



I am a coach who believes in each client's potential to lead an incredibly rich and fulfilling life.


As both a coach and a professional historian, I am passionate about helping motivated individuals make sense of their lives, relationships, and their place in the wider world.

I draw from a diverse and successful background, coach-specific training, and over eight years of coaching experience to help my clients get the most out of their personal and professional lives. I know from my own life how challenging – and rewarding – it is to switch directions, change career paths, and achieve top results, always with a focus on creating and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. I am passionate about supporting my clients – most often academics and other high-performing, creatively thinking individuals – as they gain greater awareness of their unique strengths, surpass their own expectations, and achieve the lives they dream of.


Originally from Vancouver, Canada, I came to the UK in 2005 with over a decade of teaching experience and having worked in the health and fitness fields, and in film and television production. At the University of Oxford, I completed a master's degree and doctorate in the history of medicine, focusing on the history of HIV/AIDS and public health. I continue to have one foot in the higher education sector: I am currently a part-time researcher at a world-leading university and my research has been published in the Bulletin of the History of Medicine and Nature. After receiving a Certificate in Coaching Skills from Coaching Development Ltd., I earned an Associate Certified Coach credential from the International Coach Federation, and I maintain the ethics and standards of behaviour set by this global organisation in my practice.  


I live and work in central London and am able to meet clients there and in Cambridge for in-person coaching sessions. I also enjoy coaching clients from further afield by telephone or Skype.
