Who Is Allie?​

Genuine. Tenacious. Compassionate.



Coaching brings out the best in me. There, I said it. Bottom-line, people and relationships fascinate me, and they always have. I could talk about them for DAYS, ask anyone who knows me! I am empathetic, I see the potential in everyone, I have the ability to make people feel comfortable AND courageous, I value having difficult conversations for the sake of growth and development, and I am tenacious. I also am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC), a Professionally Certified Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and have completed Levels 1 & 2 in Gottman Method Couples Therapy Training. 

Here is the “why” behind my love and passion for coaching - I think we all can be doing better individually and in our relationships. I want to set a new precedent for us, now and for future generations: By building up your foundations and seeking out the right support, knowledge and tools for you, individuals and relationships can THRIVE. We can let go of comparison, anxiety as a lifestyle, perfectionism, self-doubt, people pleasing, the need for control, past habits, and exhaustion, and can cultivate more sense of self and compassion. With support, we can change for the better, find our balance, make conscious decisions, and process our emotions.  It is my experience that coaching has a ripple effect, creating more joy, happiness, contentment, connection, belonging and love in the world. Who doesn’t want more of that? I know I sure do. 

My Coaching Approach:

  • I am curious about EVERYTHING.
  • I foster courageousness and emotional safety.
  • I hold you as fully capable and accountable.
  • I use my intuition.
  • I hear what you are saying and listen for what you aren’t.
  • I am playful, humourous and imaginative.
  • I deliver hard truths that are in service of you.
  • I empower and believe in you at all times.

Let’s Get Down to Brass Tacks.

I am genuine, playful, personable, courageous, helpful, driven, caring, open and open-minded, social, intuitive, competitive, curious, generous of spirit, hard-working, steady.

I love cooking, eating and talking about good food always, sunshine, dogs, hockey, a quality conversation, the Maritimes, connecting with people, golfing, social gatherings, my family, laughing, campfires, a good song lyric, being goofy, going on adventures, finding the beauty in everything.

I can't stand when people are glued to their screens, laundry, closemindedness, overcooked meat or vegetables, being too hot, inefficiency, too many cooks in the kitchen.

I am captivated by people who can build things, singer/songwriters, whales, people who march to the beat of their own drum, the human body and mind, trees and nature, human relationships, small business owners.

I could improve on saying no, shortening my stories, exercising patience in certain situations, my math skills, having more community involvement.
