Finding (My)Self (Love)
This is a love story about a woman finding herself and self-love. Sometimes we have to lose everything and do what makes us happy in the moment to realize the most important things in our life and what we really never want to live without. I took my daily blog, all the highs and lows, all the people I met, all the racy moments, and turned it into a book. I hope to inspire people to travel the world, travel solo, and no matter how bad the heartbreak is, things will always get better.

The trip of your dreams may only be a few weeks away!
In 2006, after graduating from the Unversity of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Finance, I started my sales career with Xerox Canada. I quickly learned the art of negotiation and created solutions that made my customers more profitable. I was a multiple president’s club winner with the organization and later moved on in order to expand my knowledge and experience. For one year I worked selling medical-grade cosmetic lasers and followed that up with two successful years on the national account team for American Express Canada selling enterprise payment solutions.
In 2014, I had a moment. After working for several years, building my career in corporate sales, I realized my happiness was tied in extrinsic form. I decided it was time to live my dream.
Within a matter of weeks I left my role as a National Account Executive, sold my house, and went backpacking around the world – solo. I traveled to 17 countries across four continents over the course of 6 months.
During that time, my daily blog increased in readership and had been read 10,000 times. I celebrated that moment by converting that blog into a book, called Finding (My)Self (Love): One Girl’s Journey Across 17 Countries Across 4 Continents in 6 Months.
Upon my return, I realized I found joy by inspiring others and helping people to overcome their limiting beliefs to achieve their dreams. I started a new weekly blog focused on mindfulness, life balance, and the personal lessons I learn through the events of my life. I encourage my readers, and individuals in my network, to become part of a community of lifting each other up and giving gratitude for everyday moments.
Through my journey, I decided it was time to become an executive life coach and help those around me find balance and joy in life for every aspect they are involved in. I am currently enrolled at Erickson College International taking The Art & Science of Coaching and finishing my certification with the International Coach Federation (ICF).
Writer for international publications such as GoodMenProject.com and Success.com. I was named one of Success Magazine’s Most Inspirational Bloggers of 2015 and featured in their January 2016 issue.
2016 will feature speaking events in Sydney and Calgary, and will release my second book, How To Be A Nomad: Go From Business Suit to World Backpacker.
