A wide variety of experiences have shaped me and offer me helpful insights that I bring to the role of Coach & Consultant. Over the years, I have had the privilege to work with thousands of individuals to support them in their professional development, at various stages, and with a number of organizations.
My beliefs and values have been shaped by my professional and academic experiences, as well as by my experience as the daughter of Greek immigrants to Canada. I live with my husband, son and our dog, Milo, in Toronto, with the blessings of extended family nearby and have the joy and privilege of regularly visiting family in Greece.
Past “formal” roles include: Senior Director, Law Practice Program at TMU (formerly Ryerson University); and Special Advisor to the Lincoln Alexander School of Law. I have also been the Director of the Strategic Planning Unit with the Legal Services Division at the Ministry of the Attorney General; Director of the Internationally Trained Lawyers Program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law; and Assistant Dean and Director of Career Services at Osgoode Hall Law School. Prior to that, I practised civil litigation and family law.
Lifelong learning is a core, fundamental value and passion of mine. Training and certification includes a law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School, a Masters of Education Degree in Adult Education from OISE, a Certificate of Completion for the Art and Practice of Leadership Development Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. I am also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), having completed the Coaching program from the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and in 2022 earned my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coaching Federation. I am passionate about personal and professional success and development, leadership, diversity and inclusion and developing strong relationships and networks
In 2022, I was honoured to receive the “Stronger Together” Award by the Women in Law Leadership, a recognition for which I am extremely grateful. And in 2023 I was honoured to be awarded the Women’s Law Association of Ontario President’s Award, for my contribution to the legal community and demonstrated commitment and leadership to the promotion of women in the law (see: https://wlao.on.ca/2023-annual-awards-gala).
