Here’s how I'm different

  • Radical Candour

    My parents taught me to treat everyone with respect, that we all have gifts to share, and to speak up and help others, whenever possible. That means that I communicate with radical candour. Because I want you to succeed, I'll share what I observe, my lessons learned, and make the occasional suggestion about what you might want to do differently moving forward.

  • A Safe Inclusive Space

    Individual coaching sessions, are delivered with accessibility and inclusion as guiding factors. That means that I am happy to chat using voice, text and video. For example, using the "chat" box in zoom with non-verbal people, and enabling the automated closed captioning in Zoom.

  • Ideal Jobs

    I found my ideal jobs over 28 years in the military and then created my ideal job over 10 years as an entrepreneur. I also have experience helping others achieve their unique definitions of success, on their own terms. I know that there is no magic formula or one true path to success. I share what I’ve learned with you, so that you can find or create your ideal jobs.

I'd love to be your Thought Partner

You can book individual coaching sessions with me through Calendly. There is a $100 + HST fee for each half hour (30 minutes) we meet.

Why chat with me?

I believe that each of us has gifts to share with the world, and that when we find a workplace that appreciates us for those gifts, and compensates us with at least a living wage, then we all win.

  • I think of myself as a Thought Partner! I'm interested in learning what your gifts are, and helping you find ways to leverage those gifts

  • I offer feedback on what you’re doing now, and suggestions on what you might want to explore doing differently

  • I strive to create an inclusive and accessible space to the best of my abilities. This includes offering multiple ways for us to chat virtually.

Director, Human Resources at CHEO Research Institute/HRPA Ottawa Chapter - Past President

I was so grateful to have taken the Empowered Path Inc. course. Chantal’s leadership in navigating the course was incredible, as was being able to connect with my fellow students on a regular basis. I reflected on my career, did a vision board, used mind maps and reflected on who my “friendly forces” were. Chantal is very invested with her students and the one-on-one sessions with her are so helpful! This course gave me the courage to change industries after 25+ years!

There are many ways in which Chantal’s course benefited me with my career and personal life but ones that stand out are how I see it evidenced in my life. I moved from a job that had very little challenge to a rewarding career with a significant pay rise. I am helping other people succeed and progress in their careers and I hope in their lives, if even in a small way. Never be afraid to ask for what you want.

Even though part of my background was as a career coach, it's really hard to coach yourself into your next career. So I reached out to Chantal to get some clarity around my approach to a possible job opportunity. She gave me some straight forward simple advice (and confidence) on what to do to ensure my needs were met. And, it worked! I landed exactly what I was after. Thanks Chantal for being my trusted coach and cheerleader all in one! She carries with her great knowledge and experience and a very positive mindset and is available when you need her most! I have no doubt that she can help others gain a clearer path to their next career move.

We met for coffee and our meeting that day changed both my life and business model! Chantal also opened up a series of new doors for me by suggesting I consider speaking for an upcoming Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) conference. Soon after our meeting I was booked as a speaker for a large HRPA conference and am now listed on their Speaker Roster! It was clear from the beginning that Chantal possesses strong leadership skills - including her unique ability to recognize unconventional talent and apply it in creative and innovative ways! She is a very deep and insightful person and has proven to be a great mentor. Chantal is personally responsible for helping me identify opportunities to expand my business model and has significantly increased my professional network. I am a personal attestation to her services; she changed my life and she can change yours too!
