Lynn studied a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and received a Minor in Women’s Studies from McMaster University. She then went on to study in the Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, but was forced to pivot away from that due to a catastrophic highway car crash.
That didn’t stop her from pursuing Graduate Studies at The University of Toronto/Ontario Institute For Studies In Education. Lynn’s Thesis research, Food Democracy & The Construction of Risk in The Canadian and U.K. Media, allowed her to dive deeply into her passion for environmental studies and education. Building a sustainable food system that protects our environment, sustains farmers, while also nourishing our families, involves a great deal of collaboration across many systems!
She later pursed Strategic Coach Training with The Robbins-Madanes Institute and has formed a coaching and consulting business in 2016. During this time, she has loved putting together unique local workshops and programs to help people manage their stress with peak performance strategies, and she’s reconnected with her community of health practitioners. Lynn’s recently launched online personal development program, The Pro-Mind Experience, helps health practitioners manage their stress and lives with more balance and freedom in a step-by-step fashion.
Serving as a member of the Board Of Directors of The Victoria Brain Injury Society, she’s grateful to serve her local community. Prior to that, her work as a nurse offered her positions with world-renowned hospitals and health departments. With experience in areas such as Psychiatry & Adolescent Medicine, Labour & Delivery, Emergency Sexual Assault Services and Population Health, Lynn has a diversity that supports her clients in an evidence-based manner to achieve any health and wellness goal. Sadly, the accident cut her nursing and chiropractic career short, but that never stopped her from continuing on her journey as a healer, a long-time meditator, and a Reiki Master Practitioner.
A big fan of high-vibe living and hanging out with her daughter, Soleil, whom she had as a solo mother, through a fertility donor, has taught her about love, gratitude, patience and human potential. Her love for the lakes and the ocean is manifested regularly through a good paddle on the lake. And her passion for great wine, cheese and craft beers will never die, along with trying out every bakery in town!
Her ultimate joy is creating a life that boosts her soul’s purpose…and that involves taking her students and clients along the journey with her.
She’s discovered that building her own ‘dream’ Health & Wellness coaching and consulting business involved BEING TRUE & HONEST WITH HER CLIENTS. She’s real and as authentic as she can be.
Lynn has not only recovered from tragedy, but has applied the same strategies she teaches, and considers her clients as ‘members’.
