Stephanie is a certified Integral Master CoachTM and is accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF), as well as being a credentialed evaluator with the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES). As an ‘amateur athlete for life’, Stephanie has a deep passion for the transformative power of sport in our lives: as a soccer coach and Board Member, she has worked to cultivate positive team environments within which players, coaches, and parents can all thrive.
Stephanie specializes in Integral Coaching®, research and program evaluation, change management, and leadership development. Since earning her PhD in Sociology in 1999, Stephanie has provided consulting services to federal, provincial, and non-governmental organizations. In this work, she has designed and managed numerous evaluations and research projects in the areas of health and disability, among vulnerable populations including First Nations and Inuit, persons with disabilities, and immigrants. Since 2015, Stephanie has been leading the progress evaluation of a workplace mental health initiative in one of Canada’s largest federal departments, and exploring the ways in which the evaluation function can serve to drive organizational culture change.
As a Leadership Coach, Stephanie works with clients individually and in groups to help them get traction in areas they have been stuck, to relate to situations in the workplace or in their personal lives in an expanded and resourceful manner, or develop capacities to help them expand into a fuller, more developed version of themselves. She does this from a place of deep compassion, curiosity, and whole-hearted commitment to engaging with the human experience in the most alive way possible.
Stephanie and her husband have spent the last two decades raising four children, two dogs, two cats, and a flock of hens in rural Ottawa. She volunteers with her local soccer club, serves on the Board of Directors of SchoolBOX, and as part of her own ongoing development, actively practices meditation and mindfulness and soap-making.
