In the business environment I am an organizational wizard with a passion for leadership, efficiency, accuracy, and customer service.
Outside of work, my other passions are people, cycling, and fitness. For over 18 years I combined both work and cycling, and at the age of 38 I won Canada’s first Olympic Cycling Gold Medal beating competitors half my age. I continue to share my cycling experiences and knowledge through keynote presentations and I ride my bicycle 2 or 3 days every week.
In today’s constantly changing world, I serve organizations by bringing leadership and organizational skills acquired from both business and a successful cycling career.
