As a Leadership Development and Coaching professional, I'm here to guide you on your journey to success.

My Why

I started H.A.V.E. Solutions because I saw brilliant people struggling as a result of lacking or the wrong type of support for their leadership journey. 


I am the difference for those individuals.  

Leaders of all levels benefit from having a thinking partner to help them identify what is keeping them stuck, identify their options and a way forward. As a coach, I have no hidden agenda, biases or assumptions, and I offer a safe & open space to discover a new future.

I lead people through their roadblocks and get them moving in the right direction.

White Structure
I'm happiest when . . .

I'm riding my motorcycle around this gorgeous country or I'm walking, hiking and roaming in nature with my dogs and my husband.

Nature is my happy place; it soothes my heart, my mind and my soul.

I am reading a great adventure story (Clive Cussler is my favourite) or an interesting biography or personal development read.
