Before founding Careergasm, I taught at the School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. I have a M.Sc in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources Management, a M.A. in Leadership Studies, and a Bachelor of Journalism. I studied Executive Management Coaching at the graduate level, and Life Coaching under Dr. Martha Beck, Harvard-educated coaching expert of O Magazine and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
I speak at high profile national and international conferences and events. Some of my speaking engagements include IBM Global Entrepreneur Day, SociaLIGHT, Discover Your Personal Brand, the National Job Fair and Training Expo, WISE (Women in Science and Engineering), the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology, the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada, the Organizational Behaviour Teaching Society for Management Educators, and the Academy of Management.
I write about careers for Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc.. My work has also been featured at Fast Company, Fortune, Financial Times, CBC, CTV, CityTV, Toronto Star, Chicago Tribune, Global News, Flare Magazine, ELLE, TechVibes, The Globe and Mail, and lots of other cool places.
So that’s the professional stuff. But you probably want to know a few juicy personal tidbits too, right? Right. Here are some fun little tidbits about me that have nothing at all to do with work.
