About Me

I was a creative genius in kindergarten. But, chances are, so were you. 98% of kindergarteners score as genius on a creativity test, but only 2% of adults score the same. What happened? Where did it go?

When I was in kindergarten, I loved animals, so it was a foregone conclusion that I should become a veterinarian. Then, in high school, I discovered a passion for performance, acting, improv and photography. Does this sound familiar? Did you think you had to choose Art or Science? Becoming a veterinarian seemed easier, more linear. Through a series of life events including entrepreneurship, a corporate speaking role, and stand up comedy, I regained my connection with my creativity. I recaptured my joy from kindergarten, by expressing what makes me unique and different.

But what would people think?

You, too, can find the joy everyday creativity, and learn how to worry less about rejection. I am obsessed with sharing the secret with other "non creatives" like me. Using my skills as researcher, I have devoured the evidence on creativity, and how it benefits our personal and professional life.

Nobody cares that much about what you do. You might as well have fun, enjoy your job, and share your unique gifts with the world. I know, it can be scary to try something new, and to speak up and stand out.

Engage your unique style of creativity and I promise that you will feel more productive and fulfilled, and you will inspire others to do the same. Leading with creativity builds cohesive teams who want to stay, because they are making a difference, feeling heard, and having fun. Creativity is contagious.

With experience for over 25 years as a "locum tenens" in hundreds of veterinary hospitals worldwide, I have mastered the nuances to engaging a new team, building their trust, and leading efficient process for superior patient care at warp speed.

I live in Calgary, where my lectures go unheeded by my family. The dog listens, sometimes. My dream is to help the most reluctant creative find the courage to take tiny, unconventional actions every day towards a regret-proof life.
