One of the most impactful choices of my career!

“Working with Mary-Ellen has been one of the most impactful choices I have made as a physician when I reached the stage of wanting something different and more fulfilling in my career. She was instrumental in having me look within to discover a hidden passion and desire while also holding me accountable for taking the steps to get there.”

Hi I’m Mary-Ellen

Who I am in life extends to who I am in business. I make a conscious effort to honour my values of kindness, stepping up & into, respect, joy & fun, flexibility and impact. 

Fun fact – fresh out of university, I convinced Toronto City Councillor Jack Layton to champion my idea for a skate rental at Toronto City Hall. He typed an endorsement letter (on a typewriter!) which eventually led to the skate rental that exists today. 

The drive, commitment and sense of community that brought the skate rental to life, continues in my work today – empowering individuals and organizations to overcome mental blocks, develop as leaders and move ideas to meaningful action with newfound clarity, perspective and knowledge.

I look forward to meeting you!
