Headshots & Reel
Speaker One Sheet
I have deep expertise and love to talk about the following:
- personal productivity (happy habits for time and task mastery)
- sustainable performance (well-being, ergonomics, #nosleepshame, the #dailymove)
- work-life integration (return to work, work from home, work from anywhere)
- getting organized at home and work
- inclusivity especially around neurodiversity (ADHD, the Highly Sensitive Person, Sensory Processing Sensitivity) and invisible illness (multiple sclerosis)
With two kids of my own, I can happily provide a parenting perspective. I have lived in the UK, southern Ontario, Toronto, Tokyo, and Montreal. I've had a wide range of work experience - working for bootstrapped entrepreneurs, energized startups, leading-edge marketing companies, and multi-national tech companies both as an individual contributor and as a remote and local team leader. I've worked from the office and from home, both full and part-time. I am proud to be a member of Staples Work From Home Advisory Council and committed to helping design a kinder, more effective future of work.
My formal studies include biology, business, and executive coaching.
