Please provide a personal bio for other members to get to know you

A (proud) Canadian, prairie girl turned West Coast enthusiast with a love for animals (with a particular bias to dogs and horses) I am a big believer in the "leap and the net will appear" approach to life. 

A few examples: I moved from my hometown of Calgary to Montreal on 2 weeks notice when someone offered me a really interesting job I was totally unqualified for. I met my Dutch husband while travelling solo in Spain and we got married 3 months later, after spending a total of 5 weeks together in person and the rest of that time long distance. After spending 11 years climbing the corporate ladder and having an epiphany that the next step would be just as unfulfilling as the last, I quit and went freelance.

I love all the adventures that life has to offer and believe that optimism and grit are a winning combination to tackle everything we encounter and dream of spreading this idea in a meaningful way through my community and beyond. 

Please provide an overview of the project(s) you'll be focusing on for the next 12 weeks as part of Unreal Collective.

Since going freelance 2 years ago I've been focused on bigger corporate clients with business coaching work with entrepreneurs growing organically on the side. I've found this work is something I feel really passionate about and I want to put more focus on how I can structure it as an actual service offering, defining who it's for, how I can grow it and where it fits in the big picture of my business and life.
