Lisa is a seasoned coach and leadership development expert, keenly interested in what fosters – and what hinders – personal and professional change and transition. Her primary area of practice is in supporting senior leaders in speaking truth and acting with courage as they craft compelling, powerful strategies, and collaborate on drafting roadmaps to get there.

More than a coach and consultant, Lisa is a thinking partner who leverages her experience with executives at iconic Canadian organizations such as the CBC, the Hospital for Sick Children and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health – and internationally with the Mastercard Foundation – to guide leaders in shaping their influence and legacy in service of impact, significance and results.

In addition to her master’s degree in Organizational Change, Lisa is a certified professional coach and a skillful facilitator of leadership development and organizational culture transformation. She is currently collaborating on a soon-to-be released podcast on diversity, inclusion and belonging called Different People.

Based in Toronto, Canada, Lisa works in French and English, and travels extensively for work and pleasure. Outside her professional interests, she plays hockey, gardens and reads Scandinavian/Nordic noir mysteries.
