ABOUT ME

intuitive | visionary | empathic | grounded | soulful | driven

HI I'M JANE

But who am I, really? Well I'm a gentle, empathic soul with a big heart and a big vision for each and every one of us. I may look like the girl next door but I take pride in my subtle edge and my desire to do things just a little bit different than most. I like to question why we do things the way we do and look for a little more 'creative' way. This might be one of the reasons I work for myself! 

It's also the reason I left a well-paying job to start my own gig when I was 8 weeks pregnant with my second daughter in 2011.

And the reason I am where I am today; healthy, happy and pursuing my larger purpose for being gifted this life. You see, while I was successful with my marketing business, it came at a cost. My health. For quite a few years I bought into this idea that success meant grinding it out, long hours, doing all. the. things and wearing "I'm SO busy' like a badge of honour. Then I got sick. I was told that the condition I had was chronic and there wasn't much I could do. So I started to question, to explore what I could do differently.  I'm symptom free today and my whole world opened up. Go Figure.

 

You can read more about that story ​HERE.

I now know what I need to feel my best and be my best. I did this through some deep excavation, a lot of trial and error and with a LOT of support. What I ended up with is a personalized roadmap for all facets of my health. This has become my guide for living a life of ease + flow. It is also my north star. We ALL deserve to live a life of ease + flow.

I have worked with dozens of alternative healing practitioners though my health journey and truly believe that the key to effective healthcare is through a collaborative approach to healing. In 2018 I certified as a Holistic Health Coach through the Health Coach Institute and am passionate about supporting others in discovering their balance for a healthy lifestyle.

MY TRUTH

I'm guessing if you're here it's because you're meant to read this. Some version of my story probably rings true for you - tired, burnt out, feeling like there has to be more, wanting to find that elusive flow in life. Sound familiar?

Here's what I think about that:

I believe we all deserve to live our biggest, boldest life and that it should feel GOOD, not like a grind. 

I believe that there is a new paradigm being born. One where we can have the career, the relationships, the families and the health that we desire. We can have all of it, not one at the expense of the other. But only if we're brave enough to do the work and challenge what has always been. 

I believe it's possible to build a business or career in FLOW. The grind it out, 'busy badge of honour' days are on the way out. It's actually cool to make decisions based on what FEELS right, not what SHOULD be done, just because that's always been the way. 

I believe that wellness is the foundation to everything. When we look after our mind and body, we are better in every area of life.

I DON'T believe we can do it alone (actually I know we can't). The saying 'it takes a village' doesn't just apply to mothers, it applies to all of us. Human beings are designed to be connected to one another. We need support and accountability to live our best lives and we aren't taught to value this. 

I AM HERE TO BE THE SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER YOU NEED TO RECLAIM YOUR HEALTH, TIME AND YOUR LIFESTYLE.

 

AREN'T YOU WORTH IT? 

This is what opened up my world and I want to teach what I live, first-hand. It starts and ends with a fierce dedication to our own self-care. 

I use my experience, knowledge and intuition to help you:

  • Gain more energy

  • Lose weight

  • Heal your body

  • Kick brain fog to the curb

  • Live a life of joy and gratitude

  • Connect to and trust to your intuition

  • Make yourself a priority, but not at the expense of everything else

Together we will question why you do the things you do, figure out what motivates you, aka gives you pleasure, and create that personal blueprint you need to live your life to the fullest, everyday. 

BEHIND THE SCENES

  • I am born and raised on the west coast of BC and now live in small town 25 minutes from Vancouver

  • I have two sensitive and spirited girls and a husband who likes to ask a lot of questions

  • I am a family girl at heart

  • I had mono for 8 months when I was in Grade 11 and had to homeschool for part of Grade 12. This was my first introduction to 'alternative' medicine; my Grandma convinced my mom to take me to an herbalist. Mono either ran it's course or the herbs worked, I got better! 

  • I had a near death experience due a hemorrhage with my first born daughter. I unknowingly carried that trauma around for 8 years before fully healing .

  • I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (a chronic bladder inflammation condition) in 2013 and was told that I would just have live with it. I am symptom free now.

  • I could study alternative healing modalities all day long. I have worked with dozens of therapists through my life; from herbalists to osteopaths, naturopaths, acupuncturists, spiritual teachers and my beloved hypnotherapist. 

  • One of the most deeply healing and life altering experiences I've had was in 2018 at a meditation and long range shooting retreat in San Diego. I will return to do it again one day. Perhaps you'll join me?

  • I left a well-paying corporate job when I was 8 weeks pregnant with my second daughter to pursue my dream of working for myself. 

  • I built and ran a boutique marketing firm consulting to the tourism industry in BC for 8 years.
