WHO I AM
I founded Bellwether Strategies with one goal in mind: to help professionals build their practices in a smarter, more effective way.
I’ve worked with professional services organizations for more than 20 years. My clients include private firms, individual professionals, public institutions and non-profits across North America. While most of my clients are lawyers and law firms, I also work with accounting firms, healthcare providers, universities and executive committees.
I grew up in Saskatchewan, and went to university in Saskatoon where I earned a B.A. in anthropology (which is surprisingly useful when observing organizational culture). After moving to British Columbia, I worked at CLE(BC) while earning an honours diploma in public relations at the B.C. Institute of Technology.
I’ve completed major certifications in my field, including becoming and working as the first certified legal project management coach in Canada, earning two certificates from the Reputation Institute in New York, and completing PROSCI organizational change management training. Along the way, I published 60 articles on Canada’s online legal magazine, Slaw.ca. I combine wide lateral knowledge of how professionals can – and could – work to improve their practices with deep experience in regulated sectors.
